Noah Keller Love this song. Has a really nice and breezy feeling.
The vibe is like a "hey, I am done with this and look what I have accomplished" vibe.
Great style.

Z-Grade I love the scratchy bass sound on this track mixed with the vocals. The Villain has a heavy and muted sound to it all and is somewhat reminiscent of Big Black Delta, another favorite band of mine. Favorite track: The Villain.

your world is made up to be soft you keep your distance and soon enough count the splinters they're gone they meant nothing to me heard you're happy that's great you're treading water on and on you shut yourself in keeping occupied count the splinters they're gone they meant nothing to me heard you're happy that's great count the splinters they're gone they meant nothing to me heard you're happy that's great goodbye i'm so happy for you but i won't be at the wedding

The Villain 03:39
you're an actor for an actor performing for performers something you do, i do you get me there i'll help you out you call and i'll come back around something you do, i do and all this time resting on your laurels will all be for naught are you seeing him professionally i'm an actor for an actor performing for performers something you do, i do count your blessings where they see em show em how you're living weaponize your happiness and all this time poaching on a new front for trading places on the stages posing with the famous act as if you're one of them and turn into the villain this is how you become the villain an actor for an actor cold shapeshifter something you do, i do you get me there i'll help you out you call and i'll come back around something you do, i do use all your time to paint yourself the victim strengthen up your branding in bed with your connections broadcasting your blessings faking all your smiles and turn into the villain i don't mean to make you sad but i do

Buena Park 02:41
your friends are not your therapists and you know it's all your fault but i can't seem to leave well enough alone or bring myself to forget about it up in buena park doing well enough alone but i can't forget about it, no you let it turn you bitter why don't you find someone else but i can't seem to leave well enough alone or bring myself to forget about it up in buena park doing well enough alone but i can't forget about it, no drunk dial friends say i don't want to be friends they'll call you if they need you say they love you and then leave you and i can't seem to leave well enough alone or bring myself to forget about it up in buena park i only think about myself lalalalalalalalala

he could be your volunteer holding to your hand he could be your halo he could be your hero king open up the gates bring you on his journey but you built a prison and you threw yourself in it don't you think you should have let yourself go by now he could be your special friend out for sunday brunch look cute in matching outfits he could be your therapy your bro and workout buddy introduce him to your family but you built a prison and you threw yourself in it don't you think you should have let yourself go by now open your heart to the world lift your roots from the soil quit living like whoever was here before and careen down the line til you're off the rails and never be heard from again open your heart to the world why live as just another nice couple next door we could go take a boat and sail away and never be heard from again (lock it up)

highs and lows the first time you met to the altar pose you know it will last your life astoria has fallen tonight we had all wished you well alone in the city building digital cities films lining up your shelves on a composite wood bookcase you assembled yourself wasn't what you wanted, right searching out, grab the first dimwit you find go find your peace of mind and that love will keep you locked up for life highs and lows the first time you met to the altar pose you know it will last your life astoria has fallen tonight no turning round and walking out changing your mind for the rest of your life here you walk down the aisle now two grooms on the cake ready with your vows you aren't getting any younger now where have you been where are you going

Together 02:51
all our hope is gone they got all we want how can we keep it together when it all falls short when the thought still lingers on how can we keep it together when it all falls short when all i know is wrong i just don't care anymore all our hope is gone but the thought still lingers on keep it together when it all falls short when all i know is wrong how can we keep it together when it all falls short how can we keep it together i just don't care anymore don't stop now they're waiting for something to latch onto so wake up they're waiting

matching lovers cancelling each other out is he really all you waited for matching lovers cancelling each other out is he really worth you giving up you know the dream is gone it falls apart, it leaves you low you wanted it this is what you get you know the dream is gone when who you want has all you want it hurts like hell this is what you get matching lovers cancelling each other out is he really all you waited for sure you feel a warmth and a steady weight while your dreams slowly suffocate when who you want gets all you want

i can't take my own advice holding out for nothing waiting on the cardinal empty of my own accord frozen in the movement if you loved me, it's not my fault i fell into your embrace i do not need you i will do all that it takes for you and leave you silent in the breakaway when you desire nothing waiting on the cardinal quit it with the wrecking ball i'm leaving in the morning if i loved you, it's not my fault i fell into your embrace i do not need you i will do all that it takes for you and leave you i do

summertime your place off the brooklyn crosstown line a few white lies your secret is mine i did it all for you but did nothing for you and i do not blame you for feeling nothing i felt for you but i did it all for you new york spring laying on your bunk bed whimpering i've felt this way for a very long time i'm a selfish brat and thoughts of you keep rising from the ashes to the uptown track and our final collide i did it all for you but did nothing for you and i do not blame you for feeling nothing i felt for you but i did it all for you no we were not meant to be together i'm headed off to find somebody better
