about

A Great Lake separates the members of Mush, but that hasn't stopped the Chicago and Grand Rapids based band from crafting some fun off-kilter pop jams. Formed after discussing how sick Vagrants Records use to be, Mush strives to keep it real and make the songs they want to hear. Maybe you will too.

Peace, Love &
Protect Your Brand™

Track Name: Helen on the Beach
Everything was a sea of Indigo
From the beach
The dolphins swam next to the boats
a sign of their respect
Beseeched around her
When the world she created left
She didn't seem to notice


She let the sandbags go and rose
After she dove
into the Ashley
On a Spring day that just awoke


couldn't see through the back of her hand
Helen in her twenties passed that on to me
Made examples of her own
she knew nothing of the old
Just what's in this photograph

Trapped in a photograph
Helen on the beach
Still in her twenties
With something in her hair
She passed that onto me

She swam next to the boats
She knew nothing of the old
She couldn't see me looking back
She couldn't see that
Track Name: You Can Call Me, L
I'm on the surface with a houndstooth purpose
but it's gotten clearer from the start
You can call me lightning, because I've been running from the sky
I've just been waiting for my moment to arrive.

Restore me to my youth
As I touchdown and hideout
Among the trees

And capture the remnants
Of an engine puttering out
Whatever's left of me
Track Name: Rings of Age
It's the hernia I've never seen
the decay that's inside of me
It's rings of age
I lived to etch and burn

Bolted to the floor
These feet don't want to work anymore

When it's nonsense
Speech slurred in all caps
In as few words as I can
Get to the point
And crawl back into bed

I sway back and forth
And I don't even know what for
Indecision takes its toll
You know I know

This leads us to nowhere
Near where we saw ourselves
10 years ago
Track Name: Scandinavian Swimmers
You're scared of what comes next it's a normalcy
I've been there before
Counting the ones that you have left on your hands is a wake up call
Before they've all moved on
Lets make the most of what's to come
We can pretend to be invincible


Couldn't plan the inevitable
So you chose the far country met
Former Mayors and Delegates
9 minutes from Keflavik
5000 feet in between
The suns still out
I didn't get much sleep

Drank Viking™ beer
In a Viking ship
I stayed up until you reappeared
On the back steps
That was two years ago
and now I've returned
So much has happened since
I think you're better
Sometimes it's hard to tell
It's just who you are
And you'll figure it out

But I'm here if you need it
I'll stay if you want me to
