about

Kile and I met up for a little rehearsal at the studio before my set at Diversity Festival, the plan was to have him beatbox for a couple tunes.
Tom happened to be there as well and we played about 3 songs together before we decided it was too good to be not recording. We set up some mics, hit record, and what you hear is what went down. The uke, beatbox, and piano, are all tracked live, and Tom threw down bass after, and a little synth. Needless to say Kile beatboxed for the whole set at Diversity and it was rad.
I feel pretty blessed to know these dudes, and to find myself in a moment where I'm making great music in a great room and it's getting recorded and put out all in one smooth motion. This happened one week ago today. We didn't even mean to make a record.
very stoked.

Track Name: how to climb a salmon ladder
you wanna talk about food security?
how bout a salmon run, for you and me?
and fifty thousand of our fellow citizens,
and every one of our great great great grand children.

Damn, theres a dam. Damn, theres a dam,
Damn, I guess we need an alternative meal plan
maybe the dam could power our work
so we could buy Atlantic Salmon from Pacific entrepreneurs-
farmin Atlantic salmon here on the pacific side
I seen Pacific Atlantic Salmon with seven eyes
I seen em growin together like siamese brides
I gave em vaccine, anasthetic and fugicide...

Damn, I think I'd rather eat a blown up dam
watchin the salmon flowin up back into the land
for my great grand children, "now that's power!"
you can't measure it in kilowatt hours
but you can measure it in generations
of well fed people, under the sun

How much does cost one electric fish?
I got a blocked artery my blood is delicious
so pull the plug, pull the rug
let the blood flow, what's up, yo?
I'm havin salmon for lunch, we got enough, yo
to feed a civilization to feed a civilization
to feed a civilization to feed a civilization

to feed a civilization to feed civilization
the taste in your mouth is out of the corporation question
the lesson here is that you can't damn my artery
and try to sell the pressure to some other part of me
without somethin goin wrong on the other side
I seen Pacific Atlantic Salmon with seven eyes
I seen em growin together like siamese brides
I think it's high time we reached a compromise

For every damn dam dammin the salmon run
you gotta build a ladder and a damn big one
give me a fish flavoured stairway to heaven
Put down your power flavoured weapon.

you wanna talk about food security?
how bout a salmon run, for you and me?
and fifty thousand of our fellow citizens,
and every one of our great great great grand children.
Track Name: p(ee) is for phosphorus
you know, you should take good care of your piss
nobodies aimin, but everyone missed
the most misunderstood of the bodily fluids
If I was your mom, I'd be like, "naw, don't DO it!"
Don't shoo it away in the water supply
that's like pickin and stickin carrots in your eye
that's like prayin for rain with a chem trail
that's like sendin your gramma to jail
c'mon, P P P P P is for phosphorus
P P P P P is for phosphorus
P P P P P is for phosphorus
I've got a preposterous hippopotamus hypothesis

check out my store bought-dirt
it's perfect
for my professional vegetable circus
I'm in the church of purchasing minerals
from untouchable industrial criminals
Down in the mine, it's sweet fair trade
your mom gets the shaft
and the shaft gets paid
and the shaft is really great at gettin people to buy
whatever he's got in half-decent supply
whatever he can bake into the craziest pie
he can shake it in your breakfast
he can lay it in the SKY!

but what if I sold him a jar of my pee?
and I told him it was magic liquid fertilizer tea?
what if it worked and he wanted some more?
and so I opened up a magic liquid fertilizer store
but I'd rather just teach him how to use the force
then he could tap into his localest fuel scource.

P is for phosphorus
P is for phosphorus
P(ee) is for phosphorus
I'm kind of a doctor but I'm kind of the opposite

P is for phosphorus
pardon me I kinda peed on your shoppin list
