m. o. Amazing vocals and guitar work. Really well crafted songs. Listened to it several times in a row after downloading it.

It should be noted that some tracks on the vinyl are different from the digital versions. Favorite track: Sea of Xs.

Beard Expert A soft voice with hard-hitting lyrics, combined with dreamy instrumentals and that classic Californian "haze" makes Honcho Dreams a record worth setting on repeat. Be Calm Honcho is as groovy as it is sexy. Favorite track: I Love CA.

turd fergisun That voice is hypnotic and beautiful, those sounds are equally so. I wanna crush both into sands and bury my feet in them. Favorite track: Step Out.

Step Out 03:11
Just stepping out Just letting it all fall around you Breaking it down Busting the binds you been tied down to Calling your own name Responding to your own voice Making good with the sick brain Taking pains to identify the right choice Take your dress off, it's your god damn house Make a mess of it all Take your hair down, Wash your hands, your feet, your face now I know what you care about, I know Guarding the goodness Reflecting the light Being a witness to your crazy Moving bravely through the night Allowing the demons Sitting calm beside what’s mean Articulated seasons Bring us a meter for our own shortcomings

Mean Pack 03:16
Without people, we are a person Silent as the starfish And instant as the rain But with people, we are a family Vibrant as the ocean And infinite as the cosmos Lots of people. All around you. It’s important. They surround you. Somebody to tell you, "You are right." Somebody to tell you, "You are brave." Somebody to tell you, "You are good." And something to be good for. Without people, we are an animal Skittish as the coyote and lonely as the loon But with people, we’re a mean pack Purposed as a pod of whales And aware as the beehive. We all need eachother. To love and bathe and feed eachother. To prod and to besiege eachother. Lots of people. All around you. It’s important. They surround you. Somebody to tell you, "You are wrong." Somebody to tell you, "You are mean." Somebody to tell you, "You are bad." And something to be bad for. Without people we are a person Clean as the snow And gone with the wind But with people, we are everybody Expansive as the skyline And here like we are here like we are here…

I think that you’re so cool I think you were right Just doing what you do And taking your time I know that we are good I know we’ll be fine We did everything we could To not make up our minds Ain’t it fun to be pretty on the west coast? Ain’t it a good time to be free in a the land that the sun loves most? I know that we are kings I swear we’ll be big Just living out our dreams Couldn’t pay us to quit And I know we are good I know we’ll be fine Doing everything we could And taking our time

Sea of Xs 03:43
I swim through a sea of ex boyfriends Their fins scrape at the surface So I dive to the deep as a porpoise They bite me as the wind I swim through a sea of ex boyfriends Their limbs flail at the bottom So I bite at their wrists as a walrus, My tusks much more than you called em And I never would have went away for that long that time. And I never would have written you that love song you fucking guy I don’t owe you anything at all. I fight through a storm of old friendships Their sounds make me a liar Cuz I fail and I flake when I end it Heartbreak sets to a fire I fight through a storm of old friendships My lightning is known to devour Not all wounds that are opened are mended I face first rather than cower And I never would have walked you home that late that night And I never would have told you that I had such a great fucking time I don’t owe you anything at all

Go Outside 03:51
Go outside The daytime is our time, is our time Go outside The sunlight is our light, is our light I know you been wronged I know you been let down again I know you been lost I know you been spun the bad way around again Lets go to the beach Let the dunes do to you what the wind compels them to Lets go to the ocean Let the broad breaks agitate your sleeping fire inside Why mustn’t we be allowed to slump down raggedy? Sometimes we've been beat Even our low limbs so stripped of fruit we had saved last to eat Go outside The nighttime is our time, is our time Go outside The moonlight is our light, is our light I know its been rough I know you been calling all your favors in and pulling at your demons again I know you been rallying I know it's been challenging Lets go to the beach Let the dunes do to you what the wind compels them to Lets go to the ocean Let the broad breaks agitate your sleeping fire inside Why mustn’t we be allowed to slump down raggedy? Sometimes we've been beat Even our low limbs so stripped of fruit we had saved last to eat Calm your nerves You are the prize piece of the universe. Shake it off girl and just go outside Darling you will be returned.

Be Brave 02:17

All of our bad memories They could use a scouring We could be scraped clean If we weren’t so cowardly I am skin on sandstone I am gravel in a washtub I am noises in the morning I am sun in your eye. And it’s always my fault Cause I’m so needy It’s always my fault That you wont see me All of our lost moments spent Just sucking heat right off the wind So caught up inside our heads No I don’t wanna talk about it I am skin on sandstone I am gravel in a washtub I am noises in the morning I am sun in your eye I am the smell of peaches Gone off in the sunroom In the bowl you put ‘em in To let ‘em go ripe
8.
Each Day 03:32
Each day we rise raised on the hourly wage. We are, yolk-up, soaked up bout to bust all over the plate It’s your last chance It’s a make or break Get your fill while you can, there’s no take away And when you’re called to the stands, what will you say? You were “fighting the good fight” This time, this game. Each day we come late Made slack by the pay that keeps us at bay We are grounded in our unfounded evidence, its prevalent, Whose word and at what expense? It’s your last chance It’s a make or break Get your fill while you can, there’s no take away And when you’re called to the stands, what will you say? You were “fighting the good fight” This time, this game. Every night, I’m awake Squinting at the light Setting my braid I am a baby, bellied up daisy Driving the boys right crazy Every night, I am stayed, Bound by that which dissuades the brave I am a darling, spitting and snarling, Sharpen my teeth, initiate the sparring
9.
Brimming 02:52
And what good does it do? To get caught chompin on the bit Adrift in solitude And anger from not getting all of it I am gnash my teeth I am pound my first Against how I can’t breath Stuck inside this hot hot hot fit I’m brimming I’m set to burst Just skimming, slitting top layers first Wicked as a storm Winded as the sail Continuously burn I am the siren wail
10.
I Love CA 03:52
Along the highway Cruising with the gang again We on another getaway We are best friends And you are better than you think Wish you could see what I can see You are better than you think Wish you could see what I can see And the boys drove up from Los Angeles that weekend Hugging The 1 like a bible And smoking all the while The girls descended down from the clouds of San Francisco Window draping limbs for better tracing pelicans I love California like you do I fall for her harder in the full moon Meet me by the creek I’ll be there all day Wading in waist deep Beneath the meteor display Beneath the starlight Soaking in the deep pools I am a firefly Now I can really see you And you are better than you think Wish you could see what I can see You are better than you think Wish you could see what I can see And when they finally met midway between Hollywood and The Bay They entangled at angles and covered eachother with eachother like they’d been doing since they were teenagers, toasting the coast and beyond and the sand they stood on was fucking violet. I love California like you do I fall for her harder in the full moon Meet me by the creek I’ll be there all day Wading in waist deep Beneath the firework display
11.
What we have made Is a wild thing All I wanna do is talk about you baby And sleep all afternoon In eachother’s light Oh God to watch you get tired I can’t look away, a cabin set on fire And oh god to watch you layin out Your hands to the north Your feet down south You are a piece of my body now And I like you more than everybody without a doubt What we have made Is a wild thing All I wanna do is touch your body baby And stay inside all day In eachother’s light Goodness me where the tears flow from the sea Tracking a slow and steady tributary And goodness me where your jaw launches free Carving a god damn smile across the whole ceiling You are a piece of my body now And I like you more than everybody without a doubt
