RED STATIC Impossible to pick a single favorite track.. the title song is a solid trip peaked with some exultant emotional vocabulary but each individual song arrives with its own pluck or bump that keeps your head nodding along. NORTH HILLS and THE MYSTERY complete what is a really strong first half, but I am very fond of LIAR and THE UNKOWN in particular on the second half. Favorite track: North Hills.

"There’s something delightful about Badboxes. Though they may literally be named after a box in which all bad things and ideas are stored, it’s probably because they’re all in there that the Pittsburgh trio’s music makes you feel all warm inside. Case in point: their single “JSMN” — also the eponymous track off their debut EP — which seems to fit into the band’s self-described “northern pop” genre quite well." -All Things Go (www.allthingsgomusic.com)

Track Name: JSMN
speak and then listen
because i can see your plans
you dressed in jasmine
a cigarette in your hand
i know you want everything
i can see it in your eyes
just pretend that you care what winter brings
and i'll be fine
so say goodbye
you tell me you love me
Then you say you're sorry jasmine
I hope you believe me you think this is easy jasmine
Track Name: North Hills
take another shot to dumb down the pain
something in the burn just takes me away
hit with your eyes tell me what you like
taking off your clothes but you're leaving on the lights
i could scream so loud just thinking about
my woman
keeping me up all night
my woman
likes a good clean fight
we built this world with our bare hands
she's my girl and i'm her man
if only she would understand

i am true,
i'm true to you
but you think i'm cheating
you think i'm fucking around on the weekend
i can't stand to see you cry,
there's just no reason why
you've got to go

driving through the north hills
will the silence so real
i see you and i get chills
with lights on cheap thrills, cheap thrills
Track Name: The Mystery
oh, the mystery's all gone
and i should be headed home
back to the north
because i feel like i'm far away
when you're laying next to me
i guess i need room to breathe
but baby you will never go away from me

we climbed up on the rocks
and you took your clothes off
i'd dive right in but i can't swim
i've got a little devil in my soul
and he's trying to win control

it feels like i'm in trouble
and i don't even know what i've done
i'm sifting through the rubble
trying to get a hold of anyone
i hate to be the one to bring you crashing down
but you should know about me
if you think that you can hang around
so can you hang around?
Track Name: Too Much Love
I've been giving too much love to you,
Fueling the fire in your eyes,
But I cannot resist the way you move.
Touching you just makes me feel alive,
Tell me that you love what you see when I know it's just pretend
In the morning sunlight, in the ghost of tonight,
leave all your last goodbyes alone.

I'm drunk enough to speak the truth,
and all I want's to dance with you.
I know I'm not your man,
but we do the best we can,
Girl don't you walk away,
Believe me when I say.
