It took more than two years for all of the pieces to come together for Remember Sports’ third album. In the time that has elapsed, Carmen Perry (vocals, guitar), Jack Washburn (guitar), and Catherine Dwyer (bass) have relocated from the tiny Midwestern college town of Gambier, Ohio, to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, adding new drummer Connor Perry and retiring their original nom de plume, SPORTS, along the way. Slow Buzz (Father/Daughter Records) is the latest evolution of a band known for its dedication to friendship and ability to carve out revelatory scuzz fueled tunes that make you want to grab your closest buds and dance your cares away.

Slow Buzz centers around a break up and comes at a crossroads for the band. The record is the first official release under Remember Sports, a moniker that functions as both a question and a command, which foreshadows all of the deeply personal emotions Carmen experiences at the painful end of a good relationship. Carmen’s writing is diaristic and intimate; hearing this record is a strange amalgam of both melancholy and joy. Brazen and energetic as ever, Slow Buzz is a record that is a paradox. It celebrates both the sanctity and joy of friendship in the same heartbeat as the grief attached to moving on from something difficult and nostalgic.

Recorded in Valatie, NY by Evan M. Marré (Russel the Leaf), Slow Buzz is the band’s first release as a solidified group, and fittingly the first record on which they had the luxury to experiment and expand upon their live sound. The result is an album that is expertly layered in its sonics: Slow Buzz focuses intently on all of the nuances of arrangement and production that Remember Sports has fine tuned over five years of playing together is their most ambitious record to date. Come for the high energy dynamism, stay to have your heart broken.

Track Name: Otherwise
You could tell me all of this was just a dream
A glowing piece of sky in the light of some moonbeam
And I’d take it back just to leave behind
The slow buzzing feeling realizing it just wasn’t right
But at least I’m okay otherwise
At least I’m okay otherwise alright

And I don’t think that you’d ask for me anymore
Like the night you had me running to you at the bathroom door
And I know that it’s not like that anymore
But I’m sick of losing touch with who we were before
Cuz we were okay otherwise
Yeah we were okay otherwise alright

And all I wanna do now is tell you about my dream
Light a candle in your room and fall asleep
And I wanna stay right here forever your hand in mine
Peeling pieces of skin off of each other’s spines
Cuz at least we have each other right?
If nothing else we’ll get this right
At least I’m okay otherwise
Cuz otherwise I’m fucking up my life
Track Name: Up From Below
I found your sign in the sky last night
I’m a song that you keep in the back of your mind
With all of the things you compartmentalized
You’re not mad at me you just can’t look in my eyes
And I’ll ring three times before saying I tried
It’s your birthday and I still can’t get it right
And I know everything’s gonna be alright
It’ll all be fine we just all wanna die

Four years we spent jumping over these waves
We were so scared of change how it ran through our veins
Now I’m diving under and reaching for you
But it’s somebody new and I don’t know what to do
And I always thought that I’d be changed when I got to the
Surface again and that we’d be friends
I’ll stay underwater till I work it out
Or my lungs give out
Or my lungs give out

Below
Up from below
Below
Up from below

It was so loud
When I loved you too badly to notice
That there was no giving or taking with our
Hearts slowly breaking
And it turns out
There was no way around it
That I couldn’t stop you from going
That you couldn’t stop me from going

Below
Up from below
Up from below
Up from below
Where else can we go
From this mess that we made out of our situation
Below
Only up from below
Track Name: You Can Have Alonetime When You’re Dead
Am I regressing or growing legs?
My pride on the floor like a broken egg
Brown paper floors in an empty room
You’re crying now but I’ll see you soon
And you say you’re sorry
And I say it too
What else is there to do?

And I’ll keep looking even if you don’t
And I’ll think about you on the bus ride home
And how I keep making the same mistakes
When I look back up you just crumble and break
And you look right through me
Do I look like no one to you?

And the days all blend together now
I’d say what’s wrong but I don’t know how
There’s something crawling in the walls
Still I’ll crawl in bed and forget you all
And I’m thinking about what you said
That you can have alonetime when you’re dead

One day I’ll be on the top floor of a building
Looking at you and our anxiety is crushing
We spent our whole lives wishing we were elsewhere and
Now that we’re gone we’re just trying to get back there
Track Name: Dripping
Dripping down the sink drain
There is nothing of you left
My head on your shoulder
You look older but not grown yet
And I’m waiting for the first sign that I see
Why is everyone looking at me?

I’ve been going backwards
Does your neck hurt as much as mine?
You were looking so slow
Out the window you were mine
And I know that I always make up my mind
So why does it feel different this time?

So when did everyone else lose their nerve?
I’m sick of always missing what you heard
Track Name: Calling Out
Mid afternoon your life is over it’s too hot to think straight
I make you play another round of guess what I am thinking
And it ends the same say something lame we leave things sweaty and tired
Turn into shapes that we can both stand sleeping through the night in

I’m wondering if birds get tired after all that flying
You say that you’re afraid of heights but really it’s just the falling
And it’s such a shame when you call my name as I’m walking away
You paint a picture in my mind of what my life could look like

And if you’re coming out today
Then I guess I’m calling out today

And if I collapse out on the sidewalk do you think I’d fall right through it?
They’ll lie awake at night wondering how the heck did she do it
And it’s so unfair that you’re not there when I tell myself it’s over
Tell me why’s it so bad to treat today like it’s not yesterday
Track Name: Nothing’s Coming Out
Is anyone around?
When did you stop making any sound?
And what’s that on your mouth?
Is it something good that you just spit back out?

So what do we do now
That I’m empty and nothing’s coming out?
Did you forget about
All those feelings that we’re not feeling now?

Your body’s melting in my brain
Our wires tangled up again
Today felt like a fever and it’s
Creeping creeping creeping me out

And I am falling down
On the carpet can you just help me out
I think I forget how
To say I miss you remind me again somehow

Maybe I’m not up to nothing
I think that I noticed something
On your face I can’t explain its
Freaking freaking freaking me out

And nothing’s coming out
Do I know you now?
Don’t I know you now?

I think I get it now
I think I get it now
I think I get it now

I think I get it now
Do you think I get it now?
I think I get it now
Track Name: The 1 Bad Man
I’m not afraid of what I did but
I’m not getting over it
And I know and I know and I know that you asked me to stay
I’m just a bad man today

So you’re stronger now and the road ahead is clear
But it was so much warmer the last time you were here
And I know and I know and I know that I’m not being fair
I just want you there

Oh my god I’m petrified
We’re so happy we could die
What could be more dignified?
Stick a needle in my eye

And I know and I know and I know that I’m not being fair
And I know and I know and I know that you just want me there
And I know and I know and I know
And I know and I know and I know
And I know and I know and I know and I know
And I know and I know and I know

Oh my god I’m petrified
We’re so happy we could die
Never wanna make you cry
Swallow all my pride tonight
Track Name: Temporary Tattoo
You told me to be patient
Fill up my head with doubt
Then make me wait it out
I’m scratching off what little skin’s left
You shut me down again
I lash out but don’t hit send

I’m not like you
It’s only guilt that lasts indefinitely
Temporary tattoo
And when you leave here you’ll be thinking of me

Use your imagination
If I stop making sense to you
Would you be sorry too?
Or am I just another demon?
Bet you forgot that you
Managed to hurt me too

I’m not like you
It’s only guilt that lasts indefinitely
Temporary tattoo
And when you leave here you’ll be thinking of me
Track Name: Pull Through
It’s a funny story but we’re not laughing
And I don’t think that anyone else knows what to do
You were standing still with the silver flashing at you

And through the parking lots and all those bad habits
Maybe I’m just never gonna hear those words from you
You’re up late again and still nothing happens

It’s raining down hard
It’s raining down on you
Now she’s got your number what are you gonna do

It’s raining down hard
It’s raining down on you
Your friends never call now
They’re making fun of you
And it’s raining down hard
It’s raining down on you
Say what you mean before you make yourself pull through
Track Name: No Going Back
I see you up in constellations
Like the freckles on your arms and
All this talking brought us nothing
I’m still banging on your walls and
I’m not who you thought I’d be
I can feel it all around me
Moving past me like a breeze

Guess I’ll go home now I got tired
And you’re staring at me blankly
Take a shower brush your teeth and
Remember all the good things
Back to the warm sad place in my chest
Where I miss you like a sunset
It gets easy to forget

I’m not going back
You’re not coming back
When you were the one and I wasn’t okay
And if you’re not the one and I’m still not okay then
There’s no going back

And I tried to call you Tuesday morning
Got scared and put the phone down
You’re a fire slowly burning
When I leave you alone now
Wave goodbye to Silver Springs
With my face against the window
I watch you float away from me

I’m not going back
You’re not coming back
When you were the one and I wasn’t okay
And if you’re not the one and I’m still not okay then
There’s no going back
Track Name: Making It Right
I’m not really in here
I’m just waiting until the coast is clear
But I got tired of hiding
I’m playing dead inside but nothing’s happening
And you’re calling my bluff
Six thirty and I think that’s enough
You think you’re in love
I’d go outside but I’m too tough

Do you think this is working?
I don’t know but my heart is in your hands
And I’ve been talking in my sleep
The things I wanna tell you just keep slipping out of me
And I wish you were here
My conscious is anything but clear
But I’m making it right
Stay up with me please let’s not fight
Track Name: Unwell
I’m coming over in the morning
Sweaty hands nervous feet
Things got bad and it made you sad
But don’t take it out on me

Maybe all of this is written
Exactly how it should be
I fucked up and I gave you up
Now you’re walking away from me

You’re already gone
You’re already gone
When the lights go on

So nevermind good intentions
Some things can’t be put back
I felt the drifting and fade to black
But I couldn’t ever quite pull you back

You’re already gone
You’re already gone

I didn’t mean to be the one to ruin everything
I didn’t mean to be the hole in the crotch of your jeans
I blame it all on myself
None of the good helps
When I feel unwell
