Milagros: A Full album. I forgot to post most of it in the past two months, my apologies.

Sunscreen” - Swimmingpool The Band

Download the Album, Milagros, here:

In the hard stretches of one of the many heat-waves this summer, I wrote Sunscreen. It remains one of my favorites as it’s somewhat punchier/more accessible than some of my other work on the album. 

It was also the first song I recorded with found-sound sampled beats (mostly me kicking things, hitting things or clapping). The lyrics are simple and very straight forward. Beyond that, it’s all interwoven guitars and vocals. I play everything on this song (as well as the whole album). 

Milagros grew out of a frustrated period of writer’s block and, though five songs long, as a running length of a short LP (30+ minutes). I consider it to be a full album in its pacing, structure and pieces. I am very happy with the end result and I hope that you enjoy it as well. 

Let me know what you think!

A special thanks again to divespell who helped me come up with the album title. Go follow him.

As for my other recent releases (click to download each album):

The Lyrics are below. 

“come over tonight
it’s too hot outside
in the day it’s too bright
the sidewalks are full
of strangers
And I feel small 
I feel like I’m being watched 

It gets hard
to wake up in the morning
I don’t want to be alone
with my dreams
they get hard for me”
