about

This EP was an attempt to do something with our friends that would have cost way more money in a studio. We tracked all the instruments in our old practice space and the vocals in Joe's roommate's bedroom. The end result isn't overly compressed or overly produced, and that's absolutely on purpose. Still, we spent a lot of time on this record and are super excited to share the songs with you. Hope you enjoy listening to this as much as we did making it! - Kev M

about

Down With Homework Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Down With Homework is an American 1960s era pop and rock group, fronted by musician Gary Lewis, the son of comedian Jerry Lewis. They are best known for their 1965 Billboard Hot 100 #1 single "This Diamond Ring," which was the first of a string of hit singles they had in 1965 and 1966. The band has an earnest, boy-next-door image similar to British invasion contemporaries Herman's Hermits. ... more

Track Name: Cauliflower Pizza
You say move forward
I say I'm moving on, well
So all alone but
Please tell me I don't know how
I've got some problems
I'm learning how to cope
Well, if you can't handle
I will close myself to you

We only are what we do
This road's laid out for me and you
So stand up, don't hang your head
Let's put this restlessness to bed

We're doing lots of
All that we're down for
So all alone but
Ain't that just how it goes?
Well, I've got some problems
I'm learning to adult
Well, if you can't handle
I've got some words for you

We only are what we do
This road's laid out for me and you
So stand up, don't hang your head
Let's put this restlessness to bed tonight

The walls are coming down!
Track Name: Honk Bonk
One car crashes into another
Feel my grip on the world slip, I wonder
No classes, no pedagogy
Feel my grip on the world slip, I wonder
Who's gonna fix this for me?

It's in the stars
Whole world's gonna break my heart but
You're still around
And I'm alright for now

One car crashes into another
Feel my grip on the world slip, I wonder
No classes and no studies
Feel my grip on the world slip, I wonder
Who's gonna fix this for me?

It's in the stars
Whole world's gonna break my heart but
You're still around
And I'm alright for now
Track Name: Party Sawft
Half past midnight
As you lie asleep at home
I'm at the zeitgeist
And yet I'm feeling so alone
When I'm hungover
You're up for work at 4am
So, drunk or sober,
I'll walk ten miles home to bed

Another party that you cannot go to
So why should I go there at all?
I could enjoy myself if you were there, too
But since you're not I'm going home

Half past midnight
I'm feeling tired, looking old
This Bulleit on ice
Might make me warm, but I'm still cold
I love my friends, too
But I've got one thought stuck in my head
Keep wishing for you
The one I love best, home in bed

Another party that you cannot go to
So why should I go there at all?
I could enjoy myself if you were there, too
But since you're not I'm going home
Track Name: 80 Hours a Week
Leave town tonight
Start your life anew
You're young for now
But you won't be soon

You made inroads
Just to find yourself at a big impasse
You gave your all
Every single day, now it's come to this

You've grown now, you know now
What you need to do
So run from your problems
Or they'll run over you

Leave town tonight
Start your life anew
You're young for now
But you won't be soon

You called it love
Never showed you a single ounce of respect
But now it hangs
Like an albatross around your fucking neck

You've grown now, you know now
What you need to do
So run from your problems
Or they'll run over you

Leave town tonight
Start your life anew
You're young for now
But you won't be soon
Track Name: Balances
It seems the squeeze is on tonight
It's coming from all sides, says "get your life right"
I feel the coal beneath these rungs
And breathe the heat into my lungs

I said, alright, but I'm not calming down tonight
These balances upset won't wreck the atmosphere in my head

It's just what we're supposed to do
But tell me what's so wrong if it's just me and you
We're forge a path through our own lives
And make the best of every night

I said, alright, but I'm not calming down tonight
These balances upset won't wreck the atmosphere in my head

I thought it through
I couldn't stand it
Your thoughtful planning

I said, alright, but I'm not calming down tonight
These balances upset won't wreck the atmosphere in my head
