Otherwise 02:37
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
2.
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
3.
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

Dripping 03:16
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
5.
Calling Out 02:19
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
6.
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
7.
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
8.
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
9.
Pull Through 03:16
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
10.
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
11.
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
12.
Unwell 04:07
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

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.
