    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

C.H.I.C.A.G.O. (Can’t help it Chicago always got ours.)

No one else has this swagger.
No one else creates this beat.
I’m a butcher of the guild,
The centralized beast.

Hey there Apples and Sunshine!
I’m barley, loose feet, and wine.
I’m stammered stink,
& rusted sinks.
While others shrink,
I unwind.

I am a vagrant,
An ashtray for the wicked.
I am a tyrant,
A man that you don’t fuck with.

Hold my head High with Midwest Bravado,
That’s right suckers,
I Am Chicago!

Men with golden arms built me,
From the bones of Europe’s past.
They’ll never stop erecting,
Until I stand alone at last.

Hey there Apples and Sunshine!
I’m barley, loose feet, and wine.
I’m stammered stink,
& rusted sinks.
While others shrink,
I unwind.

I am a vagrant,
An ashtray for the wicked.
I am a tyrant,
A man that you don’t fuck with.

Hold my head High with Midwest Bravado,
That’s right suckers,
I Am Chicago!

Welcome to my backyard blues,
To jazz your jumbled bones.
Consider me the muse,
To unlock all the unknowns.

Hey there Apples and Sunshine!
I’m barley, loose feet, and wine.
I’m stammered stink,
& rusted sinks.
While others shrink,
I unwind.

I am a vagrant,
An ashtray for the wicked.
I am a tyrant,
A man that you don’t fuck with.

Hold my head High with Midwest Bravado,
That’s right mother fuckers,
We are Chicago!
