here’s a new song! I guess whereas the old lyrical themes of trench party were corruption, authority and government, the new lyrical themes have evolved primarily into ruminations on depression, happiness and its effects. this song is basically the lighter side of the emotional spectrum. I tried to write the happiest song I could think of. when I originally had the idea it was going to be entirely sarcastic but it ended up being sincere because life is awesome!
life is great. ain’t it grand when you start feeling like something good is bound to happen? finally I have that elusive contentment in my grasp and I will not question its origin cause it’s got me feeling so very fine! it’s the best when you let all your stress be collected with the refuse. clear the cobwebs of self-loathing from your tortured psyche for the benefit of that tiny sprout of happiness. look you in the eye and tell yourself to shut up. tell yourself to stop making joy seem so abstract. the weather’s always changing but the storm inside your head is not, so take this brief good feeling as your present.
me and my friend alex just finished recording a new song for his solo-project archaeology in the basement. alex is one fuck of an amazing piano player and songwriter and this track is just another example of his innate ability to craft heartfelt pop brilliance. I think this will probably be on the upcoming trench party/archaeology split on terminal detour atlanta!
another old trench party song, recorded in the year 2009 in an apartment in dahlonega and a Ben’s bedroom in cabbagetown, atlanta. a hippie anthem of sorts, about the impending human-induced apocalypse or something…in the interest of full disclosure, I don’t actually care about any of that shit. thanks for listening, it’s trench party!
we finally completely depleted our fresh water. from coast the ocean the ocean is toxic with our sludge. now the soil is useless. no vegetation will thrive. the sky is muddy with poisons screaming to escape our atmosphere. the populace is choked with fear for the fate of humanity. bolt up your doors now and seal all your windows tight. earth will have her vengeance tonight. your faith in your children to amend the mess we’ve made is gone because we’ve not a future. our decadence finally has caught up with us. we created gods to give us the planet and say unto us we could do as we pleased. never for once did we admit our complicity in the bringing of our own demise. fire is raining from the skies. let’s rejoice in her victory!
I have never had anybody reblog my posts to my knowledge, I guess either because I never asked for it or I never post gifs of people fucking…but reblogging is an excellent way to show your support for my band, trench party! why not reblog your favorite song today?
here’s a new song and despite the fact that it is almost unfathomably amazing, I can already sense that some people will be like “aww, jake WTF” at the lyrics. to these people I say this: thanks for listening to Trench Party!
new song that I personally consider to be one of the greatest songs ever made, but that’s just my opinion! it’s about exactly what you think it is and will definitely be on the upcoming trench party/archaeology split on terminal detour atlanta, son boyee
May I offer a tip? Thank you. Telling people your music is good isn't promotion. It's off-putting. Your music may well be good but when you say it, it casts an unintentional shadow of ego over it that might lose you some friendly ears. I say this as a fan.
fine, my music sucks. stop listening to it you dumb fan
here is a brand-ass new song that I literally JUST recorded. it’s a little more electronic than my songs usually are…uhh but it’s really good. this song is about how it’s sometimes hard to remember to not just smoke pot and cigarettes and drink coffee and watch tv all day…you know what I mean?
something went haywire with the faculties that recognize the root of my desperation. poison clouds my mind. I satiate myself with drugs or mindless entertainment rather than looking inward to remove the cancer. keep taking the easy way out. keep trying to make better of myself but am persistently deterred by simple distractions of dropping out. time to think about reconfiguration.
