André Z. Pagnossim How do you get funkier and sexier after making a Stevie Wonder covers album? Somehow, Brady Leo and Joe Calabrese managed that on this new album. SOLID LP is SOLID and SEXY. "Very Important" brings a group of moaning blues singers crashing into the Hotter than July recording studio. SOLID LP makes you wanna have sex in the same way a Marvin Gaye album does. And more, I wanna see Brady and Joe sensualizing in a 90's video directed by David Fincher. Favorite track: Very Important (feat. Pablo Falbru).

about

Shrimps explore a new sound with their sophomore release: the sound of displacement and connectivity; fragmentation and unification; past and future. This is life. This is the present. It's emotion. It's in motion. It's fluid. It's SOLID.

This album is dedicated to Brian Schrull. Wish you weren't here.

Track Name: Very Important (feat. Pablo Falbru)
It's getting heavy
and I don't know how to make sense of this
I might be crazy
but it seems like it's always the same shit
Just a minute now
do you know what I am talking about
It makes you scream and shout
then takes the words from your mouth

Have you felt it deep down in your bones?
Has it rocked you from the night till morn?
It'll shake you right down to your core!
Make you lose your mind or sell your soul!

Track Name: Step It Up (feat. Jim Schreck)
Step it up, step it up if you want us to
We'll step it up, step it up if you want us to
We got your posse right here with an outlook that's crystal clear
And we'll...

Step it up, step it up if you want us to
We'll step it up, step it up if you want us to
We got your posse right here with an outlook that's crystal clear

And one at a time
We'll take you on
And when it's quittin' time
We'll hit that bong
And when we run out of rhymes
We'll end this song
And when it's quittin' time
We'll hit that bong
Track Name: Swollen
At least you covered your eyes
We're going off on what's going down
Our anti-hero drops to fix these bloodshot skies

Pendejo, pendejo, pendejo

Waves of darkness intensify the light
of the burning false-flag fire
you put these blinders on to zero in on the one

Pendejo, pendejo, pendejo
Track Name: Big Whoop
In this world gone mad
are you really doing your best?
Are you a careful class, taking the high road to hell?

Cuz in this world of magistrates and in this world of masquerades
Bitch, you get the runaround, you get the runaround
And can we call a spade a spade?
And can we see the mess we've made?
Bitch, you better come around, you better come around

Let's go do these crimes
or else we're safe and sound and screwed
We're losing ships and shipping crosses
And crossing the bridge and bridging losses

Cuz in this world of magistrates and in this world of masquerades
Bitch, you get the runaround, you get the runaround
And can we call a spade a spade?
And can we see the mess we've made?
Bitch, you better come around, you better come around

Time and time again

Dude, not now.
Track Name: The Tag/Space TYAG
Step it up, step it up if you want us to
We'll step it up, step it up if you want us to
Step it up, step it up if you want us to
We'll step it up, step it up if you want us to
We got your posse right here
Step it up if you want us to
We'll step it up, step it up if you want us to
We got your posse right here
Step it up, step it up if you want us to
We'll step it up, step it up if you want us to
We got your posse right here with an outlook that's crystal clear
Track Name: The Plate (feat. Joe Marone)
So we got five eggs, do not crack the yolks
French fry seasoning, rest the burgers on top, walk away
45 seconds walk away
Wing sauce, barbeque sauce, cheddar cheese, mix
Continue mixing... barbeque sauce, wing sauce, cheddar cheese
Look for the red to go away on the burger
Keep chopping and mixing
Layer of cheddar cheese, melt cheddar cheese
Throw it on top of a plate
Lettuce, diced celery
Blue cheese, if we have the fancy stuff, use that
if not, go dressing
Uh... wing sauce, barbeque sauce, make it look pretty
Track Name: Is It Still Important?
With all the golden land ahead of you, you go back to zero
These moments pass right by in flight
Go catch the twenty-second line and crossover candles
Flickering faults onto the blinds

And when the time comes, say it over and over again
"Good night Elijah, goodnight Elijah"

Summer alone, some are alone
It's the future in motion, future emotion

Time and time and time and time again
You don't believe what you want to
Time and time and time and time again
It makes no sense that we would never meet again

Summer alone, some are alone
It's the future in motion, future emotion
It's the future in motion, it's the future emotion
