about

Recorded December 2010 to January 2011 at home in Hastings on Hudson, NY.

This EP is a collection of my freshest, sparkliest songs. It's short, but it's symmetrical and it feels whole. For Anna.

February 2011

----

"Several Girls Galore has the prowess of artists who have been around for a decade or two longer than them, and you can hear what sounds like the ease of seasoned musicians from this impressive young group. While there are some similarities with bands like Deerhunter, or Women, or maybe Pavement, Several Girls Galore definitely has a sound of its own with Will’s haunting Vocals, driving drum and bass, and the quickly moving finger picking of melancholy guitar chords."

Track Name: The Noise We Make
The world won't stop or shake
From all the noise we make
The joy is enough to bear
I've found more than my fair share

I think of all the years
I hoped and begged and feared
I didn't know your name
But I felt it all the same.
Track Name: Ten Weeks
She brings me up
I know she knows we're on
We'll kiss until there's nothingness
We'll dream until there's nothing left to dream of, only us

When I think of those who came before
They don't matter much to me
No, I never thought I'd find this love
And there's still so much more to see

Oh all the nervous laughs that kept me hopeful
Then all the nighttime walks down dirty city streets
And all the touching fingers, hips, and lips
But there's just no way to say, no way to say...
Track Name: Winter's Hands
I saw the snow on the peak for the first time
So I told you when you called me that night
And I hoped for many winters more
And I know you hoped the same thing, too

Oh winter's hands
Come and clench so quick
But they'll never stick
No, they'll never stick

You told me about your Halloween
And the slowly falling autumn leaves
And I wanted to be there
Where the green doesn't stay throughout the year
Doesn't stay throughout the year

But this love won't fall so easy
There're too many things you do that please me

I know it's there

Oh winter's hands
Come and clench so quick
But they'll never last
'Cause you're coming back
'Cause you're coming back
'Cause you're coming back.
Track Name: Beg, Borrow, or Steal
There's a place we can go
But everybody will know
Don't let it bother you, no
Here we never could hide
We just drank all the time
And nothing ever mattered anyway

And here I am
And here I am

So what'll be the deal?
Will we beg, borrow, or steal?
Have we forever lost that feel?
Who'll be like me?
Who'll follow my lead?
Wherever it may go

I'm surrounded by the smell
Of twenty-two years of living well
Why don't we stay here, a quiet life?
I've already got you on my side
Like the summer state of mind
I really didn't mean it when I said bye

We've been so far
We've been so far

So what'll be the deal?
Will we beg, borrow, or steal?
Have we forever lost that feel?
Who'll be like me?
Who will follow my lead?
Wherever it may go

Will you come back home to me?
Will you come back home to me?
Maybe it's that easy
Will you come back home to me?
Will you come back home to me?
Maybe it's that easy
Maybe it's that easy.
Track Name: Takes Me Over
Taking my hand so there's nothing we won't understand
And we can face it all anyway, every day
Taking my hand so that nothing goes against the plan
That just gets solider every time we talk
And every time I leave it gets harder and harder to believe
That I can say goodbye and carry on with my life
So I write to you and rip it up, and sing to you about my love
That takes me over.
