SB Stokes With hints of Aphex Twin blended with the echo-folk production style of New Animal, young family has released a rock-solid EP. Each of the four tracks manages to surprise and be strong enough to stand on their own, while still gelling perfectly as one single creation. I can't wait to hear their next release. Favorite track: $$$$.

Track Name: $
the low low is where i've been
only bother me, only offer me
a handout, a black white flag
cold dark & me, only things i see

turns out the worst car wreck
leaves on your back nothing to see
in the meantime i'll pretend
you're in the ditch sprawled out next to me

the one way you made a lie
went the other way, carried it away
the good war you made a lie
falls apart in me, leaves it there to die

the low low place you've been
only bothers me, only offers me
a last chance chance to mourn this
before it goes away for good
Track Name: $$
don't walk me back to that first place
you know how i left my body in the last place
was i asleep in the road, did i die this winter
was i ever alive in the first place

don't make light of it
i put my gun into its frame
pulled on the weight of it
burned it alive in its own flame
don't walk me back to the mess it made

did i miss you too much
did i dissolve in the summertime
i fell asleep in the road
played dead in the meantime
i'd make a good ghost
i could haunt you anytime
get carried away
being dead in your nighttime
if i wasn't so gone
if it was me in your place
i'd try to send you back home
i'd try to send you back home
cause i'd want to be alone
Track Name: $$$
i beat myself up cause i like the taste of my own blood
and waking in the morning you won't find me
when i come around you'll see i unlock my body but i don't make a sound
and i will never let you participate

i'm not a person, i don't care if this thing inside myself can hurt
and i will wear holes thin into the knees of you
and when we sleep together, i'll pretend that i will carry it around forever
but waking in the morning you won't find me

you made your mistake trying to find treasure in the messes that i make
but i could never tell you, i could never tell you..
that there's nothing good about me..

i'd beat my heart up but my heart's already the color of my blood
and waking in the morning you won't find me
Track Name: $$$$
i was minding my business, i was winding myself there
i was walking away from this, i was walking toward something
that was dying

come on like me, i built a little coal mine
shapes my face into a dark heart
go on leave me, my hand is a land mine
combs your hair into a dark part

i hate this shit
i carry your light
from a basement
to a lonely night
