Jackson Ochs shiny dark alt pop indeed!

Dynamic, propulsive and polished to a mirror shine, the music here strikes the ear beautifully. It pleases my aesthetic to an unreasonable degree. Favorite track: Dog Song.

Track Name: So Sweet
So Sweet
uh huh said her eyes
uh huh said her mouth
uh huh said her throat
oh it’s so sweet
gonna get sick if I close my eyes and I lie down
uh huh said her eyes
uh huh said her mouth
uh huh said her throat
oh it’s so sweet
uh huh bleary-eyed
uh huh dirty mouth
well you said it right
now you’re so sweet
I’m coming along in a heartbeat city
whatever you want I want for you
wouldn’t you know you still look pretty
lying awake in a spinning room
gonna get sick if I close my eyes and I lie down
when I held you up
I could see it was nothing
better than tasting so sweet
fingers wrapped around
fingers dipping down
well you said it now
that you’re so sweet
Track Name: Signs of Life
Signs of Life
all alone an only creature in a worn out home eyes that search dark skies for a sign of life
but all you’ll ever know an answer that opens to another locked door
in a long-dead light
I waited to find it I waited to find it I waited
all your dreams littered in blue and glittering green in your eyes they’re shining like a
sign of life
what are you waiting for somebody else to open the door
but I know you I do
you’re a sign of life
I waited to find it I waited
waiting waiting waiting waiting up for
nothing nothing nothing nothing in the
darkness sore eyes searching
holding on for nothing nothing nothing
standing in the light
Track Name: Dog Song
Dog Song
and I thought fed to the dogs
almost got mine
sooner than I thought
I know the weaker creature caught
lost in the night
and every soft sound spoken was
run for your life
on my back the beats per breath
beat a heart attack I said those eyes like to be
preying on you
preying on me
and I got shot, collared, caught
buried my mind
a hard place and a rock
and when the chemicals collide
rush down your spine
you with the shell-shocked vacant eyes
run for your life
on my back the beats per breath
beat a heart attack I said those eyes like to be
preying on you
on my back the beats per breath
beat a heart attack beats per breath beat a heart attack
brought my breath back to be
who are you who are you are who are you
and when the chemicals collide
run for your life
Track Name: Kaleidoscope
Kaleidoscope
and the answer was the only one
saw it from so far away
I could see your distant outline
floating up in outer space
but born are the seeing and born are the blind and I’m watching you go
love in the shadows and love in the light and you’re
my kaleidoscope
oh we never have enough time
sewn together just to tear
I could see your distant outline
floating up into the air
but red are the mountains and gold is the sky and I want you to know
love are the pieces that let in the light and you’re
my kaleidoscope
but I know the shapes of new constellations a life outlined in light
like a diamond and gold like your mind and one day your garnet
heart it, oh it all of it will
Collide, collide I
want you to collide
Track Name: Birthday
Birthday Song
hours in a day
count the minutes but they wouldn’t say
what amounts to you or to all of the things you do
I wanted to say that it’s never just another day
it’s today
we are in between
what on either side is still unseen
so it seems to be that I’m here for you and you for me
on this day and every day
lifelike, I wanna know why
I want a good reason to doubt you believing
in wronging the rights
my hand in yours oh ain’t it nice
but there have gotta be thousands, millions waving
all alone in the night
waiting in the car with the engine off and in the dark
and the gavel fell
didn’t you know I don't believe in hell
and I’ll tell you why
I am being reborn all the time
like that day
Track Name: Grim Ranger
He went ranging up on the outskirts firelight gave them away
He went ranging up on the outskirts firelight gave them away
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
light to blind me
for in these eyes there's never enough light to blind me
but at night I don't go out too far
blinded eyes and blinking stars
for the thing that I hold true
it ain't just the dark it's the dark in you
and I know, waiting on the outskirts, waiting for you
He went ranging up on the outskirts starlight fell on his face
oh I said it, don't you go out there, but I won't get 'em to stay
stay
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
light to blind me
for in these eyes there's never enough light to blind me
but at night I don't go out too far
blinded eyes and blinking stars
for the thing that I hold true
it ain't just the dark it's the dark in you
and I know, waiting on the outskirts waiting for you
