theUtmost Enjoying the riffing and bass lines in this, easy to pick the favourite track on this album! Favorite track: Stuck.
Bart thumbnail
Bart Saw them open for Jeff Rosenstock at the end of 2021. They cranked out a great set. Their new album is sometimes dreamy folk rock. Then they'll turn on a dime and crank out some fuzz heavy tunes. Great new album. Favorite track: The Last Summer.

Afrdt I first listened to The Last Summer on KEXP and I immediately got hooked. ❤️ Playing this on repeat! Favorite track: Bad Brain Daze.

Morning 02:22
Nightmare machine starting First thing in the morning Variations on a theme Merging the worst parts of real life and of dreams Nightmare machine fires up First thing when i wake up So many things that could go wrong One of ‘em’s bound to happen before too long I drive the car off of the bridge I see the simulation glitch An airplane drops out of the sky Anything can happen, don’t need a reason why Sometimes i look at the moon I think it’s screaming Some nights when i look at the moon It looks like it’s weeping And there’re days i think i’m dreaming when i’m awake Nightmare machine I’m a nightmare machine Nightmare machine I’m a nightmare machine
Neon signs, flashing by me and a Cherry coke and crumpled bag of french fries lying on the passenger seat Where you used to be One hand out the window watching Light play across the hood of my car from the streetlights passing by End of another night Riding around with your best friends Doing the same thing every weekend So this is what it’s really like to feel alive Playing CDs on the stereo Flipping through stations on the radio Another saturday night and we’re doing all right Driving south, past the AU campus American graffiti ain’t got nothin on us in a honda accord Driving not to be bored 2am by the monument and No one’s around but everything’s still brightly lit up we’re staring up at lincoln In downtown washington I’m feeling so alive With my heart open wide The whole world seems alright Laughing friends and neon signs Cherry coke and french fries See you on the other side These are the nights i will remember I’ll hold onto them forever Cruisin’ around with nowhere specific in mind Yeah this is how i will remember The last summer together Another saturday night and we’re doing just fine
It’s hot Finally summer and we’re Coming alive again Spent the winter Getting paler and we’ve Got vampire skin But now the sun’s out We’re feeling better about What the days ahead bring They’re lasting longer Stopped getting dark before five it’s time to see the ocean So grab your towel Get in the car We’re headed out to rockaway It isn’t far Sun shines Waves crash Think this might last forever When we get there Take our shoes off And dig our toes in the sand Stay til sunset And watch the tide roll out Receding from the land By the ocean Is where i wanna be When this all comes to an end Crack a cold one And watch tsunamis come Surrounded by my friends I can feel happy on beach days There’s always something to get in the way of overthinking everything Only have to worry about the riptide only have to worry ‘bout the undertow when you’re Going out swimming When i can feel the sun on my skin when i can taste the salt on my tongue it feels like Nothing can go wrong Tomorrow we go back to real life so just enjoy the beach tonight i’m glad y’all Came along
Solar Flares 04:48
I feel the weather change Gets hotter every day Feels like, sun’s fixin’ to kill us Sunspots duplicate Solar flares on their way Some day, magnetic annihilation Society cannot stay Not with things going this way we’ll run to find somewhere to survive Through rocks and ash Houses fading at our backs Onward to something new The lights fade And the grid fails The phones are down No water to be found We’ll strike out on our own Trying to find a new home If there’s one to be found Unknown homeward bound But it’s a long way to go It’s a long way to go So close your eyes And find a way back home It’s a long way to go Off to parts unknown So close your eyes And find your way back home
Stuck 03:46
I feel heavier than i used to Feels like gravity is getting stronger Something’s pushing down on my shoulders trying to flatten me out, leave me on the ground Dreamt of standing in line last night Just queuing up in an unending line Woke up feeling i’m still waiting For what i don’t know, but the feeling grows I feel heavier than i used to Like my feet are stuck in the thickest mud trying to pull myself free from it Starting to feel that’s a Sisyphean task I’ve got to, i’ve gotta gotta get out
From the Van 04:18
I don’t think i hate this city the way that i used to spending too much time away anyway But I miss my friends a lot It’s a struggle just to keep in touch Out on the road From the van I hope we can I think I’m getting used to this Keeping in touch with texts and pictures When I’ve been gone for half a year And you’re still here Am I still here? Am I still real? I’ve been gone away so long Sometimes it doesn’t feel like I have a home anymore just another place I’m stopping by Just another place where I can say hi To the people that I rarely see The people I hope still know me The people that I love The people I’m always thinking of As the highway slides by underneath And the sky stretches out unendingly And the mountains creep up slowly And the fields just look so lonely And I think I can’t spend another hour in this car I’ve no idea how we got this far And all I wish all I want Is to be on another planet with you
there’s a fog on the horizon i can’t see but i feel it comin’ on drops like a bomb when i try to think now it’s like there’s so many thoughts i can’t even pull one out just one big cloud another bad brain day will i be okay? trying not to dwell too much and just get along with the day another bad brain day i can’t seem to shake the feeling it’ll always be this way i’ll never be okay when i try to breathe now it’s like my lungs are full of something i can’t get out breath comes shallow when i try to sleep now i think of every stupid thing i’ve ever done or said they fill my head go to bed and start again tomorrow
Summer Rain 03:00
At the summer rain A bench on a porch somewhere In summer rain The storm clouds roll in and bring The summer rain Soaked to the skin but i Can’t complain The water falls steadily Like a westbound train The calm it brings to my mind I can’t explain I fall to the ground and lay In the summer rain Let my body dissipate In summer rain
Evening 05:31
Listen to the voices Listen to the wind The moon shines down through the trees at night didn’t even know It was full Listen to the cicadas Listen to their wings They shed their skins covering everything don’t know where trees end and they begin Listen to the trees creak As they settle down for bed Their canopies swaying in the breeze Sky fades to black from red
