about

We recorded these songs in the basement that we call home, here in San Francisco, California, where we are lucky to have a life here filled with beautiful people, many dogs, many books, and so much joy.

The lyrics were written together, or at least work-shopped together. The guitar was mostly Jared, the bass was mostly LN, the synth was mostly LN, the drums were mostly Jared. Jared did an initial editing of the tracks, which were then mixed and mastered by Grace Coleman. A great deal of debt is owed to Devon Angus who let us use his recording mic, and Peter O'Meara, for letting us use his interface, mics, and cables.

We played 4 shows as a 2 piece in 2018, and early 2019 started playing shows with David Castillo on drums. If you were a person who came to our shows, and encouraged us to keep playing/finish recording, THANK YOU! This is for you. Special shout-outs to Peter Hurley, David Castillo (again), Dan Apuzzo, and Peter O'Meara(again) who helped us book shows early on. The photo used on the cover, as well as the header and layout photos were taken and developed by Chris Paulo Rodriguez.

Check out our videos on youtube too!

We are going to make tapes, but we were eager to put up the digital files! If you buy the digital files now and decide you want something tangible later on, shoot me an email so I can take the $4 off the price.

Write us at buddyjunior.sf@gmail.com if you want to play a show together, or have questions about something. Thank you for listening!

love always,

Jared and LN

Track Name: MARIETTA
developed photos from three years ago
do you still swallow when you're nervous?
In my dream, you had that thing still—

I hear it's beautiful there this time of year
don't send a post card but I'm happy for you

(happy for you)
(Marietta)
Track Name: DIRT
tooth//worm//dirt//rope//ghost//dirt
in my living room
/////////////////////
I don't remember
Track Name: GOTH
voice inside my head says it feels bad
nervous bit my flesh, now my thumb's red

paper always says "it's another end"
gather all you love—better tuck em in

like the way your lip shelters in spit
like the way it is when we're both spent

if it's all my fault, I was the mean one
if it's all my fault, I didn't mean to

shelter is the space where my dead's warm
shadows of the past only grow form

devil on my back wanna be my friend
devil on my back I don't let em in

wanna fall in love, but it hurts though
I just wanna dance with the lights off

thought I felt your warmth, but it's only sound
thought I felt your tongue, but it's only sand
Track Name: what my body tells me when i'm with you
/////***(((((((o)))))))))))
Track Name: SLOW92
there's a part of every end
find out where all things begin
beg to pardon every sin
hollow spaces where I live

there's a part of you in me
breathing in the dirty leaves
super market down the street
remember all the buckled knees?

in the pain of nothing new
hundred thousand shades of blue
rearrange the living room
it's hard to swallow nothing good

in the pain of nothing new
it's hard to swallow nothing good
in the pain of nothing new
it's hard to swallow nothing good
