Thadeaous Great music to happily stomp your feet to. Giddy synth tones and bittersweet lyrics invite the listener to enjoy the fleeting feeling of joy in every moment. Like young love (sigh) remember that stuff.. Favorite track: Home.

Ben Lewis The Hoot Hoots are the best. Listening to their album (albums, actually they're all great) is just plain happiness. And I just this very second realized that this album cover is a Katamari Damacy reference. Yeah one of the songs is about that game. Favorite track: Home.

It's my day off and I'm gonna Start my day Play a game Oh which Which one should I choose? I wanna roll up all the Things that I See so I can try To rebuild the sky I beat ten levels I I took a look outside And much to my surprise OH NO It's not day anymore! Hey I don't wanna be alone anymore So I called my friends to See how they Spent their day They're so Much more productive than me Some of them made songs or Fixed machines or Baked delicious pies All I can tell them is I I beat ten levels I Then stopped to rub my eyes And much to my surprise OH NO It's not day anymore! Hey I don't wanna be alone anymore Hey let's go for a walk under the city lights

Jackson 03:16
I reached into my pocket, found a Jackson that I Did not expect to find, all right! Somebody told me when I was younger, a penny saved is one more Penny that you have earned, but I never learned that lesson well I threw them into fountains Made a wish as I tossed 'em in Time and again I was disappointed Wasting money wishing Oh but now I wanna take you out Hey let's go Wherever you wanna go And now Go on and tell me about what you want me to know What do you want me to know? There's a pattern on the pavement, a little drizzle then the Sky opens wide. Where should we hide? We keep on wishing for the summer to see mountains and eat Blackberry pie, or fly a kite We're waiting for the future, and when it comes We're wishing for the past We could spend our whole damn lives wishing for other Times to live but lets just make the best of what we have. Oh but now I wanna take you out Hey let's go Wherever you wanna go And now Go on and tell me about what you want me to know What do you want me to know?

Home 04:09
The universe was just a speck in space Before you had a name, before you had a face It was a pixel in one big infinite screen It always flickers and it's not always what it seems And as the stars evolved and began to turn They turned their headlights on, it's such a pleasant burn They didn't know that there were no eyes to see Nobody there to watch, nobody there to shriek Here comes my big blue sphere! (My home, my home) Its gonna be my home! (It's gonna be my home) My home My universe it blinked and there were folks like me First there were thousands now there's billions of human beings Then we made beautiful things and lived beautiful lives and solved some terrible problems to make sensible homes Here comes my big blue sphere! (My home, my home) Its gonna be my home! (It's gonna be my home) My home

Empty Hands 03:38
Armed with quarters from him mom He's busy sneaking through the crowd He grabs a sno-cone from the stand Blue tongue and sticky mouth And the crowd reacts to the game That guy made a spectacular play And he forgets what he has in hand And his blue sphere falls down in the sand And in a moment of panic he takes His sticky ball of ice off the ground and places it On top of his cone, despite all the pebbles and trash 'Cause he can't stand to return Empty-handed Empty hands He rolls up to the store Without a purpose or a need Somebody told him at the door There's a sale on aisle 4 And he heads back to the display The glossy boxes seem to call out his name And he looks down at what he has in his hands And can't conceive of a use or a plan But in moment of panic he takes a few steps a way From the shelf with ads where perfect models display Bleached white teeth he heads to the front of the store With box in hand 'cause he can't go home Empty-handed No empty hands

And the animals They all ran for the hills And the regulars Stopped and wonder why it is The city lights Began to quiver at the sound Of a mothership hovering covering The starry sky for miles all around They've studied our customs, now they ask for volunteers A bright light surrounds the people standing in the street and as they disappear They think I guess we'll wait and see if they are friends or enemies The visitors Conduct all kinds of tests At the end of it, they decide we're only suitable as pets We become popular as a gifts They cant keep up with demand So they take us all, every one, earth becomes A quiet planet without man We get accustomed to living in a cage Passing the time with sex and video games The animals come from the hills and populate The cities and towns that we struggled to create Nobody's left to be their friend or enemy

Circles 04:31
Well, it's time for tea and you're still in bed And your ignorance is common sense As your fingers stick up to the sky You start to worry passerbys And then you start to feel like everything Is out to get ya, come and get ya And then I feel like everything That's out to get you is out to get me too I believe (you believe) Me and you (You and me) Is what I (what you want) What I want (What you want) but then you (Yeah that's me) Can't believe (No I can't) What I need (And believe) And don't see (No you can't) Well's he's coming for you so you' re feeling on fire And he's coming for me so I'm feeling on fire And he wants to set us all on fire And thinks we need to be on fire I am so confused I don't know you When did you become Someone I run from? And I know it's getting better I know it's getting better I will stop talking 'bout it I will start acting on it I am running in circles, I am spinning my wheels I will never find my way out of here

about

The Hoot Hoots Seattle

Seattle power pop quartet The Hoot Hoots are irresistible party starters. Their songs are powered by fuzzy guitars, fuzzier keyboards, and headhum-inducing hooks, and all these combine in a glorious, slightly insane energy in both their live shows and in their newest album, Colorpunch. ... more
