    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

I’ve been meaning to say…


Shove me down that staircase,
Broken falls and mended bones.
And when you make that great escape,
I’ll be everything and anything all alone.

I’m as ugly as beautiful comes,
I’m the most valued faithless one.
Incapable, stable, fabled sore thumb,
The shallow thoughts and hollow plots,
Undone!

So happy you’re happy,
No need for awkward laughing.
These cheeky smiles are passing,
When the windows fog we’re asking…

She smoked me like a cigarette,
Beat up and ashtray spent.
Pressure eyes like a commercial jet,
Expressions a painter couldn’t catch.

I’m as beautiful as ugly comes,
I’m the least favorite one.
And when the music plays,
The ballerina never stops,
She never stops…

So happy you’re happy,
No need for awkward laughing.
These cheeky smiles are passing,
When the windows fog we’re asking…

I’m so happy you’re happy…
I’m so happy.
I’m so happy you’re happy…
I’m so happy.
