I love the energy of Tank and The Bangas! The camaraderie reminded me of Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroes even if they’re very different musically.
That video won the NPR Tiny Desk Contest this year. So they were invited to play in their offices: another beautiful performance

Bonus: Sofar Sound with another track.

Loved them so much I just bought both their albums: Think Tank and The Big Bang Theory: Live at Gasa Gasa

Always Love Yourself

leave a comment »

I don’t even need you
I never tried to cry
I used to ask so many questions like that famous one, ‘Why?’

Do you know him?
Does he know you?
Did you do a little hanky-panky off at the San Diego zoo?

Did you see the koalas?
Did you see the tigers and the bears, the wolves, the-
the things you shouldn’t see

Did you hold his hand in a park?
Did you go to a movie?
How dare you have someone you cared about before me
It’s so right
For me to get jealous
‘Cause I gotta think of you as a piece of property
I’ve gotta hold on to you
When I say you’re my girl
It really means that I own you inside of my mind

She thinks that’s sexy
‘Cause she thinks that’s cool
‘Cause love should be based on insecurity, my fools

I know it’s true and it feels so good to be
Slightly addicted to someone that you feel you can’t learn about

But don’t worry now
‘Cause there’s more
A-kissing and a-smooching and a-smooching and a-kissing and a-smooching and a-maybe just a little bit of fuckin
And you gotta do it right

Listen to what they are saying
Their body will respond in time, in kind and you will understand or glean
Oh yes you’ll glean
‘Cause gleaning is a thing we can do if we really open up our listening
Oh yes, I feel how lovers like to entwine in the moment
‘Cause there’s always a discrepancy between the biological lead

To procreate
But sometimes it gets confused with the idea, the construct that society lays upon this world, yeah

You watch a movie, you think it’s like that, yeah
You watch a TV show, you think it’s like that, yeah
You read a book and you think it’s like that
But it hasn’t been like that for very long

Because society hasn’t developed
The technology to place their stories in constructs in the philosophical medium that’s entertaining for us to understand
And plus there’s so many of us here on this planet
We need a system to organize ourselves in a way that makes us feel like we come from a tradition of culture

It’s so cool, but it’s scarier
To get your things in order
And understand there’s no order
We’re all improvising
And any way it makes you happy
Is truly the way that you should survive
Because otherwise you’re living under systems that don’t match who you are
And you’ll be fighting that all of for the rest of your life.

Anyways just be happy
Just do everything with love
And you’ll see everything will B-E a-ok
Just do what you need
Take that time to do the in between
The in, the in, in, in between

Don’t use those things
Against another person
Remember every person
Is an opportunity
To learn more about yourself
‘Cause you are listening

To where they’re coming from
And they represent a reflection of yourself
As long as you understand
That there’s more to this life
There’s always so much more to this life

Hey, hey, oh baby
I like the way that you smile at me
It makes me feel so good
It makes me feel like anything’s possible, yes

As long as I don’t lie no more
To myself or to others
It feels so much better ’cause when I was younger, I could lie, let me tell you, I could lie like a motherfucker
And that is good
Because you gotta experience the darkness
‘Cause the darkness is important to understand inside yourself
It’s not always about being good
It’s understanding why you’re being good in the first place

Oh, empathy’s a bitch
Once you feel it, you can’t get rid of that itch
It’s true

Just remember to all, all, all, all, always love yourself.
