about

"Recommended if you like: Broken Social Scene, The Flaming Lips, Deerhoof

The latest album from Buffalo-based rock band Venus Vacation, formerly known as Major Arcana, is titled Muggerhugger and was released this week. With aspects of post-rock, alt rock, indie rock, and punk, sometimes all within one track, the record almost never goes where you expect it to. Case in point, the album opener, “Lighthouse,” ticks up level after level from chilled-out guitar noodling until singer-with-only-one-name Vivian is screaming hysterically into the mic aided by huge, distorted guitars."

Track Name: Lighthouse
There's a lighthouse in the distance
I can feel it washing over me
There's a red moon in the sky tonight
And a storm is brewing at my feet
And I just can't help but notice
There's a sense of dread that is washing over me

I'll sail these seven seas alone
Yeah, I've only ever been in houses
I ain't ever seen a home

If I never stand on steady land again
Sand beneath my shoes
I might just die content
When my ship wrecks to murky blues
And I fall apart back to forever
That is to say
I'm a part of the inevitable heat death of the universe

I'll sail these seven seas alone
Yeah, I've only ever been in houses
I ain't ever seen a home
Track Name: CSHR
Pray on your car-seat headrest
I'm trying hard not to make a mess
of this again

Raccoon roadkill littered pavement
I can't believe you ever said that
We might make it

And I'm calling you at home
And we both know that's as far as this will go
And I'm lying here alone
And we both know that's as far as this will go

My dopamine machine
I've been checking in all night and I don't feel relieved
I'm tearing at the seams
I don't handle stress too well
I guess that's all on me

But you don't call me back
Track Name: Social Circuit
Why do goodbyes always feel so formal
You ash your cigarette in the grass
You're so cool it's almost normal
And I'm still searching for a light

Everything that I ever said
That I only sort of meant
Is a mess
I'm on a guest bed sleeping alone in the heat
When I probably could be dying with company

But I'm a little drunk and I am content with my night

My landlord dropped off an old AC
I think we should hang out
Just you and me
I've been busy riding around on
social circuitry
I'm starting to feel like the robot from Short Circuit 3
I'm only just now learning how to be a human being

But I'm a little drunk and I am content with my night
Track Name: The Windy One
I'm dreaming
Of a beach at night
And i like the way the fog hangs low in the parking lights
Stranger do you have a light
Just one more then i'm done for the night

I wash my face
I can almost taste your breath

I'm in a car on a highway
And the stars go on for miles
I'm counting the path to Merak
I wonder when you'll be back

I wash my face
I can almost taste your breath

These bones are tired
(Wash my face I can almost taste your breath)
These bones are mine
(Wash my face I can almost taste your breath)
These bones are tired
(Wash my face I can almost taste your breath)
These bones are just fine
Track Name: Amazon
I'm in love with an amazon
Yeah she's so strong
When she's gone everything is wrong
And she loves to talk

She's nobody's girl
She's such a wonder woman
She's nobody's girl
No, she's the anti-villain

She won't fit inside my shower
She's just got too much power
Nine foot two, yeah, she's like a tower
But she ain't heavy, no, she's a real flower

She's nobody's girl
She's such a wonder woman
She's nobody's girl
No, she's the anti-villain

Track Name: Summer Greys
Clever apathetically we exchange lack of pedigrees
and I can tell that this might just go well
always in the wrong place at the wrong time
semi-circles with the wrong kind but lurking

Are you saying what you mean now
I think I get the hint somehow
Are you saying what you mean now
I think I'm getting it now
What are you saying

Severed so accordingly the frantic daily march proceeds
I'm standing in a storefront on my phone

Are you watching?
The story isn't over but the pages keep on turning

Are you saying what you mean now
I think I get the hint somehow
Are you saying what you mean now
I think I'm getting it now
What are you saying

Fevered apprehensively the weather's warming up it seems
I guess another night alone is fine

Are you watching?
The story isn't over but the pages keep on turning

Are you saying what you mean now
I think I get the hint somehow
Are you saying what you mean now
I think I'm getting it now
What are you saying

I don't know what I want
But i'd like to
I don't know what I want
But I like you
