This is a new song off our split with Cottontail. It’s one of our favorite songs to play. Hope you like it.

World is so much different from when I was growing up
sometimes I feel lost ya know

I’m not saying that it’s better or worse
I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know

As far as I can tell industry is industry
it doesn’t seem to matter to those I know

I want a garden I don’t want a swimming pool
I want a home not property though

So where does that leave me, where does that leave us
(x2)

I don’t want to work for mcdonalds or walmart
or whole foods or liberty tax

Don’t want to work for anyone
don’t want to make a profit, how bout that

Don’t want to pay rent ever again
you can keep your fries and fuck your bigmack

Oh but how do we live
Oh but how do we live
Oh but how do we change

So where does that leave me, where does that leave us
(x2)

Tools they gave us are broken, the way we live in a loss
(x2)

A few weeks ago, my roommates and I applied to rent an apartment off campus for next year. Because one of their parents was able to cosign as our guarantor, our application got approved. We’re really excited about the prospect of having our own place, but I need your help…

Hey our friend Rocio needs help with life expenses. Give if ya got it.

Community Love Song // Moon Bandits 

This came out two years ago today. We were thinking about doing a pre order for a small amount of lathe cut records, but they are expensive and would cost like $20 each. Would people be into it?

Tochtli Fest 2014 

We played a new song at Tochtli Fest LA called Property Damage: A Love Song. Check it out.

Midwest Tour? October?

Hey there Midwest punk/folk kids. It looks like this October we might be able to get in a tour out there. Where should we play? Are there any super rad little towns that we should know about? How about venues? Infoshops, radical co-ops, anarchist spaces/houses, preferably sober or at least not totally wasted. Please let us know!!
Thanks, Astrid & Tommy
