    Debut "L"P "Apples and Sunshine" from the Chicago Indie Rock ensemble known as bully in the hallway...

    "The truly refreshing aspect of Bully is their tendency to stray from the “yawn” music that dominates the indie-charts of today. (Not that there’s anything wrong with the likes of Grizzly Bear or Bon Iver; I just don’t want my entire iTunes library ending up in a sleep playlist.) This Chicago quintet is most definitely punk rock and embraces comparisons to Fugazi and other staples of the genre. Their first LP, Apples and Sunshine, aims to break ground as a fusion of punk to jazz to funk, and serves as a side dish to the outstanding live shows put on by the band for the past two years."

lyrics

Bar Wrought

Cut me off I’m drowning.
These empty words keep pounding.
Barstools are chained to the ground and…
Her smiles the only thing I got now.

How about that attitude?
How about this altitude?
Am I the only one so rude?
Or is this whole world cruel?

Theses shelves are chalk full of dust,
As the cities skeleton collects rust.
Sounds reflect the daily rush.
As many chase their words at dusk.

Cut me off I’m drowning.
These empty words keep pounding.
Barstools are chained to the ground and…
Her smiles the only thing I got now.

My crooked teeth have gone looking,
For a great catch worth hooking.
Since I was terribly mistaken,
With the words she was manufacturing.

A simple but harsh rule,
That all us fools croon.
Find a heart as cold as yours,
And you’ll find a love once pursued.

Cut me off I’m drowning.
These empty words keep pounding.
Barstools are chained to the ground and…
Her smiles the only thing I got now.

Times change, rearrange.
Same game, exchange & forgets names.
