IPU109 Frozen Roses - K Records CDEP, 7", MP3

This four song EP was recorded by Calvin Johnson at Dub Narcotic Studio for K Records and is Vol. CIX in the International Pop Underground series of 7" 45 rpm phonograph records. It is currently in print and available from K.

"Frozen Roses" is a romantic expression of the inexpressible.

"It's Lovely Weather for Ducks" came about after 40 days and 40 nights of rain in Olympia. Is it a wistful spinster anthem or a sad cry for attention?

"Mister Hypnotist" (co-written by Alan Larsen of Some Velvet Sidewalk) is a defiant cry, a seduction and a dance contest all in one...in order to subvert the masses we must engage on the subliminal level...you are getting very sleepy and it is time for action! Dance!

"A Kid Named Jay" is sk8r nostalgia. It sounds the way Stacey Peralta's hair looks when he's doing 360's. It is only available on CD & MP3.

Frozen Roses was released on 10/10/06.

Frozen Roses

I tell you every single day
I say it the exact same way
I can't really think of a better way
To say I love you, It's starting to drive me
insane.

I Will Try.

Even flowers that have thorns
Are attached by the root in case of a storm
And when I look into your eyes
I don't see you so much as the sky
of my life.

I Will Try.
Track Name: It's Lovely Weather for Ducks
It's Lovely Weather for ducks

It's lovely weather for ducks
It's lovely weather for ducks
It's lovely weather for ducks
It's lovely weather for ducks

It might be fine to die alone

Like ducks like rain
Like I like rain
I like to live alone

Dogs are more obedient than boys I know
But books are best
Books are free at the library

It's lovely weather for ducks.
It's lovely weather for ducks
It's lovely weather for ducks

A Kid Named Jay

To be in love on a summer day
To be in love with a kid named Jay

When there's a drought there's pools to skate
Call me up, we'll go on a date
To be in love on a summer day
To be in love with making mistakes

When I was fifteen and you were sixteen
I was friends with your girlfriend
She left for the summer
I really liked you
I didn't tell you
We could have cheated
Instead we made skateboards

To be in love on a summer day
To be in love with a kid named Jay
To be in love on a summer day
To be in love with making mistakes
