Polaroids 03:48
When you get back from the seaside babe I'll be tasting the sweet salt on your sweet skin My dear, we'll go to the party where the polaroids Are posted for everyone to see Ain't it amusing being young and broke and lost and every... Ain't it swell being pals and fucking the beginning? I am well living this city's cold youthful new age We're alive, let the sun shine bright on us We're beautiful, your foreign hand in mine, it's so divine I'm lost inside the magic that is you and I I'm feeling fine. This must be heaven... Right here Right here Right here You're an image from the sea now, honey I see its faded urgency run through your hair Your green eyes, they tell the story of a homeless soul They the photo of the water's green from which you come Ain't it amusing smoking cigarettes on the balcony and ain't it swell pushing chairs and getting pissed at parties I am well going home with you to feel your loving I think I love you We're alive, let the sun shine bright on us We're beautiful, your foreign hand in mine, it's so divine I'm lost inside the magic that is you and I I'm feeling fine. This must be heaven... Heaven... Ain't it amusing being everyone's villain at the start of every night Ain't it swell you're the one that they're all jealous of They want your mysterious life Ah When you get back from the seaside babe I'll be tasting the sweet salt on your sweet skin My dear, we'll go to the party where the polaroids Are posted for everyone to see Ain't it amusing being young and broke and lost and every... Ain't it swell being pals and fucking the beginning? I am well living this city's cold youthful new age We're alive, let the sun shine bright on us We're beautiful, your foreign hand in mine, it's so divine I'm lost inside the magic that is you and I I'm feeling fine. This must be heaven...

Please Me 03:07
Hey, what's on the outside? There's a hole in the covers that you won't want the gods to see Hey, your lips on the window pane There's blood on the glass If it's not mine, let it be Please me Please me Please me Please me Little one, you think you're a wise one Well I got eyes with the colour so you know that I've seen And hey, what's on the outside There's a hole in the covers, yeah you know that the gods have seen Please me Please me Please me Please me

Beach House 04:17
In the beach house he was raised a child During those golden days And I never saw mam shake her finger once In the beach house of sun In the beach house he grew up a punk Spray cans on the docks And I never saw mama look so sad In the beach house of sand Give me an explanation Mama's pulled the drapes in shame This beach ain't half as pretty With sand running through my brains You're a loose child There ain't no debate Come out of your beach house, baby You can wallow in your ill-fame In the beach house he was charged a fraud Oh those men, they find all crime And I never saw mama look so amused In the beach house of blues Give me an explanation Mama's pulled the drapes in shame This beach ain't half as pretty With sand running through my brains You're a loose child There ain't no debate Come out of your beach house, baby You can wallow in your ill-fame

about

National Hotel Edmonton, Alberta

In the strange land of Edmonton, AB, National Hotel plays the indie rock you never knew you needed, zigzagging through 60’s psych rock, 70’s lounge music, 80’s new wave and 90’s britpop, wearing their influences on their floral sleeves.
