RECORDED BY WYATT BLAIR @ LOLiPOP RECORDS IN ECHO PARK CA in SEPT 2015

MASTERED BY SCOTT FLAMMER

COVER ART BY ALLY BOY

O Shrek Yes is a rollicking and vibe-filled homerun of a record produced by Wyatt Blair, the Lolipop master himself. Vocal harmonies and growling guitar are paired with some great tremolo-twinged lead work and some big bass and drums. In an era of noise and anger its a treat to hear an album so craftily put together and well-arranged. “Noods” is a strong and catchy sounding punky beachy sounding song with a hard down beat and some good ooohhs just to make the mood. Other sections of the album get slower and more moody but all together the record is a great summary of what this band is and what this band could be: great songs, great players and a great time. O Shrek Yes seems like a joke at first but with songs like “Skip It,” you are hit hard with the fact that this band is out to write some strong melodies and catchy, chaotic beats. A great new take on a sound that will never die.

Track Name: Goner
regret i'm tired of livin with you
upset i been thinkin and i think it's time that you and i are through
hell bent over and feelin me inside
that night and that night too

i'm a goner and i'll run to the sun

i cry if and only if my jelly belly's jiggling around
and why i wonder if a figure or six'll get me down
bum keep seepin in and out and out and into my skin
the wind is where i throw my innards so cool how it blows

i'm a goner and i'll run to the sun
Track Name: Where It's At
the rot in my brain foundin what i say
has me feelin right who would asking when
how we layed today like it didn't hurt
right here and now

sleepin out at night bake a gravy day
sinkin feet in sand our hands getting high
suck and orange and cry smell the dirt and die
right here and now

where it's at i wonder where it's at

twenty years from now plenty after them
will i never learn what i couldn't touch
time is running out but it doesn't end
right here and now

where it's at i wonder where it's at
Track Name: Noods
i'm stealin deeper in the darkness
and losin shit about the all keepin it clogged up
and i still push whatevers pullin us apart cause i'm
so broken in

i'm flirting with the dangerous
breathe deep and lean into the creepiness around us
and if i kick the fear of being honestly i must be
much too small right?

when i push i'm pulled so
hard broken so broken in

well i'm meaning in the between
i'll find a first and rest it on a tremblin my chin
and open and open and open wide
Track Name: Skip It
doesn't matter where you've been
does it matter what you say
didn't even move an inch
everything is a-ok

i can't protect you nobody ever taught me how
no i won't protect you cause i do as i was told

not another second more
getyer body to the floor
none'll hear another word
it's a bummer how my thumb hurts

i can't protect you nobody ever taught me how
no i won't protect you cause i do as i was told

i don't even know your name
but i know that i can say
time and time again
that i will never beat someone else

everything is a-ok
won't lie awake cause i can say
time and time again
that i will never beat someone else
Track Name: Feline
i'm feelin away about you

i won't be lying here for very long
closer to another time to go

i don't stand in any place at all
floating to some other where we go
Track Name: Junk
so i guess i wanna rule over every creeping thing
that creeps on the earth
but including my kinds tude
when the have nots seem so crude
i overrule so toodle-oo to you

though while i and you
i and you look at the same old view
beauty bounces onto me while all you'll sees junk

can you see as far as we
in the pattern on the seats on the gold line
feeling creep into my spine
and remind me i'm alive
now i still will fight
to rise t'yer eye and smell your junk

though while you and i
you and i doomed to the same
the same old view
but when you come down all you'll feels junk
Track Name: pIlLoW bItEr
i can get you everything under the sun
need a thing dingaling till i'm under your thumb
i can fit it all in the palm of your hand
take that shit and reach it into my pants
here bite this pillow if you really wanna whine

if you wonder when you should be looking up
here's a pretty thing now you couldn't be a bum
i can make you feel it here let me give you a hand
take that shit and reach it into my ass
Track Name: Run 2 U
ven aqui arriba
and come with me dice
i can hardly hear ya
puedo oler a lion

okay lo que tu digas
i can meet you there
i can be a cheetah
corro hacia ti

i can tell you talk tell you how to scream you don't seem to hear me
if you wanna talk then you better scream or i'll never listen closely
Track Name: Chew
you chew me up and spit me out
you fix nothin to mess me up

all i can be what you layed out for me
it's all i can do and all i'll ever really be

you grew me to be groomin too
i'll throw it up all over you

all i can be what you layed out for me
it's all i can do and all i'll ever really be
but i can't cause it fits you

it fits you what it fits you
Track Name: I Do You Do
oh if you do i believe it too wiggle and jump
i can have fun if it's time only if it's time to have some fun
do ya like me now

i can laugh and i can talk just hold that thought
why don't you decide when i will only i will let another one
do ya like me now

pulling me in sucking me down
only way to make it out blow it up and open wide

oh if you do i can laugh too
i can talk but i believe it too
why don't you decide why don't you decide
do ya like me now
Track Name: Is It The Same
what's happened here or will be there
touches you'll never face
happens without you anyway

oh is it the same
it isn't some other place
no it is the same

built into waste crumble and break
that other place
the thing that makes you anyway
Track Name: Never Or Don't
oh don't be a dope
a hard headed won't
will keep you in line a while

throw your head back and go
never or don't
slide from your tongue into your throat

mixd up peelin slippin out folding my hands and layin down
this night will turn tomorrow down and out
and all around

if you biff it and die
choke whiff it alive
will we be side by side

shit who saw me eat it
and become a mope
or is it a joke

mixd up peelin slippin out folding my hands and layin down
this night will turn tomorrow down and out
and all around
out down and all around
oh will i see you around
