I'm drinkin' yerba That's my ritual solution Always working through an answer While you're standing in the doorway And I wanna say I'm doing it for ya I just wanna say I'm doing it for ya Let me rip this shit while doing it for ya Each and everyday I'm doing it for ya Up in the daylight In my multi-colored prism Always working out a rhythm Got no concept of the weekend I catch you staring out the window At a shadow on the tarmac Maybe throw another shot back I got some sugar for your headphones And I wanna say I'm doing it for ya I just wanna say I'm doing it for ya Let me rip this shit while doing it for ya And forever I'll be doing it for ya

Fresh Juice 03:00
You wanna talk politics but you never wanna drive I handed you a twenty not a five And I've been working on a manuscript no one's ever gonna see You can read the leaves I'll smoke the tea I take time to make my plans Drink my juice fresh out the can And keep on rollin' I take time to make my plans Drink my juice fresh out the can But you notice, no you don't Sundown on Burnside Kids break their bones You never say goodbye when you're ready to go One more for luck Yeah, everything's a bridge or a battle between us And that's for real I take time to make my plans Drink my juice fresh out the can And keep on rollin' I take time to make my plans Drink my juice fresh out the can But you never notice Like its nothing at all

Lady at the corner store looking for treats She's got leather on her shoulder, making no apologies Memory like a trapdoor swallowing me Remember selling now-and-laters for a quarter a piece? Venice beach prophets and the pack-rat freaks They wanna preach the 1st amendment but they won't let you speak How ever many matches they might tell you to eat Well you will never start a fire but you'll sure taste sweet I bet ya think you could know me But the black hearts only bleed when they're lonely baby Hollywood homeless man, machete He catch a cold Coca-Cola with his fake gold teeth I'm hearing heavy hallelujah out in Echo Park Is everybody in a bubble with a baboon heart? I bet ya think you could know me But the black hearts only bleed when they're lonely baby

Arcadia 03:25
Drug front in a five-and-dime up in Milwaukee just killin' time And then we slid into a joint down the block Let me ask ya, Arcadia what ya got? Headed back south on the 71 enter Kentucky we were chasing dusk And if by syzygy the planets align Let me tell ya, Arcadia every time Now I'm crushing up some pills to get ya through When destination meets deja vu I got a friend to let us crash on the floor Let me ask ya, Arcadia what ya know? I'm looking for a steel-trap woman To catch my soul when I slip by How could I let ya down when you're the one who's carrying me? How could I let ya down if you're the one who's carrying me? Now I know just enough to know nothin' but 85 on 35 How about ya keep my radio bumpin' cause Arcadia I'm alive How could I let ya down when you're the one who's carrying me? How could I let ya down if you're the one who's carrying me?

Need 02:32
I'm wasted Could you bring me some water? Migraine hits and I'm leaving my body Time wasted time and I swam through the water Did I tell ya I could kick tonight? Its harder living Unless you got a vice Whatever ya need You get it when you get at me I am addicted to your drag Whatever ya need Whatever ya need Whatever ya need You get it when you get at me Cause I am addicted to your drag Do ya got a fix for your man?

about

1st in a series of EP/LP combos. This one bridges the gap between the electro-funk of my 2019 album 'The Neon Machine', and the more laid back, hazy 70's vibe of my upcoming full-length 'Velvet Teeth' due out summer 2021.

about

Abram Shook Austin, Texas

Shook's solo debut, Sun Marquee breathes with the lungs of a man that finally found a place to call home, while also reflecting upon the circuitous path that led him there. Propelled by Shook's impeccable bass groove, and inspired by artists like Shuggie Otis, Serge Gainsbourge, and Chico Buarque, Sun Marquee distills lessons learned and questions unanswered into an accessible collection of pop. ... more
