Rhokeheart Musically this reminds me of listening to Lou Reeds Transformer with a tinge high school band. The two vocalists provide great harmony and thoughtful sometimes hilarious lyrics. Been a fan of Leslie Hall for awhile so I'm glad I found this! Favorite track: You Pretty Thing.

Katy Berg This album is so wholesome and lovely, and it's incredibly refreshing to hear such genuine wlw music! I love the quirky elements but even factoring those in, all this music is legitimately well written and composed, with high production quality.

Favorite song: It's You, Simple Iowan Gals

kevin barber I Love Neon and Nude and their debut album! I've been listening since release date to find "the standout track," but ALL these songs are so charming, funny, endearing, and melodic that i cannot pick a favorite.Kate and Leslie are brilliant talents separately, (PennyHawk and Leslie and the Ly's) and together they become incredibly brilliant, much like when the separate cool vehicle pieces come together to form Voltron or some such robot.Lyrics are as clever and sweet as any Cole Porter song Favorite track: You Pretty Thing.

I part my hair on the left I part my hair on the right Clearly we are separate individuals But our friends think we still look alike I wear a white shirt My shirt is eggshell I prefer cut-offs, I like a nice hem Obviously we dress super different We don’t look alike We just look in love If you had what we got you’d look like us too I wear a blazer I wear a sports coat I wear tan socks, I wear light brown socks Undeniably we are distinct persons You have blue eyes You have blue-green eyes That’s a world of difference We don’t look alike We just look in love If you had what we got you’d look like us too

Please move in we’ve dated for all of two weeks straight Your place is so small and it's ten whole minutes away It smells like smoke, but you don’t use cigarettes And there's never enough three pronged electric outlets You could sublet to a co-worker, just don’t mention the aggressive raccoons Then we could go to the market, we could kiss in the dark We could go tell a neighbor we’re doing fine Ever since the day, I asked if you wanted to stay Ever since the day, you became mine I have pots but no pans I have lamps but no night stands We can combine our collections, mix our socks in one drawer Sign up for a CSA take turns sweeping the floor If I moved in you’d have to make some extra space Maybe move your laundry piles to a different place I've got very dense hair, I’ve been known to clog a drain Well then I'll switch to bigger pipes to accomodate the mane Then we could go to the market, we could kiss in the dark We could go tell a neighbor we’re doing fine Ever since the day, I asked if you wanted to stay Ever since the day, you became mine We’ll need a separate holder for the 2nd toilet tissue We can agree on a bedtime but here we're having issues You like quilted and two-ply that’s to linty for me One-ply that’s like rubbing your self with leaves down there I got a itch could you scratch it, I got a splinter could you grasp it You got a cat but I’m allergic, that’s why they invented Zertek I’ll teach you how to sew if you teach me to bake Call up the landlord I gotta lease to break Then we could go to the market, we could kiss in the dark We could go tell a neighbor we’re doing fine Ever since the day, I asked if you wanted to stay Ever since the day, you became mine

Stop wearing that shirt in my direction I sense a strong connection from me to you Stop wearing those jeans cause its giving me an erection And I’d like to give affection if you want me to I’m trying to keep my hands I’m trying to keep my heart Away from grabing/holding you So we never, never part If you love love like I love love then Let’s be in love together If you love love like I love love then We’ll be in love forever I’m not quite sure how, but I’m attracted to your eye brows And I think you look cute with your hair in a braid Or how you look when you show me something you just made Skin like a dream boat, the essence of perfection If I could bottle up your sweetness it’s the scent of a brass section Playing our song, and I love to hear you harmonize along If we lived near a bus stop I would take you drinking more If I had better rhythm I would take you on the dance floor Ooooooooo You pretty thing If you love love like I love love then Let’s be in love together If you love love like I love love then We’ll be in love forever

If you got a disease that took away the use of your knees forced your life to freeze, depression swarmed you like a gaggle of bees, well I’m pretty sure, I’m almost positive I’ll stick around Cause I can’t stop loving you even when your down when you buy a house a mile and a half from your parents and you want me to get a job within a 30 mile radius I’m pretty sure, I’m almost positive I’ll stick around Cause I can’t stop loving you if thou you’ve trapped me in this town if you had a second secret family, like your on business trips and i am sleeping your with them i wouldn't guess it, but I get it, and i’m prepared to live with that I’m pretty sure, I’m almost positive I’ll stick around Cause I can’t stop loving you even when you can’t be found when you make a outfit using fabric from the thrift store and you make a duplicate in my size for me (and 1 for the kitty) I’m pretty sure, I’m almost positive I’ll stick around Cause I can’t stop loving you even when you dress me like a clown once I thought that i would leave you i told myself i didn’t need you try my luck in a brand new city i would pack my things and leave with he kitty but i didn’t get that far, i didn’t even pack up the car theirs only one girl for me, you drive me crazy but i’m never ever gonna leave I’m pretty sure, I’m almost positive I’ll stick around Cause I can’t stop loving you and i like when your around

If I could wave a wand And the house could be clean But you know keeping tidy Is poisonous to me I would if I could I'll try To Improve If there were a phrase To keep my anxiety at bay Those would be the first raspy words I would speak every day I would if I could I'll try To Improve So Next time I'm crabby And I take it out on you Thanks for loving me through all my doom and gloom Well maybe we just need a housekeeper or someone to help you think a little deeper {breakdown} When you buy in bulk to save a little money Or when your honey do list don’t cause your reading a book about our country maybe we just need more shelves for storing and a book on tape to keep your hands and eyes on the choring I'll try To Improve, I’ll try To Improve So Next time I'm crabby And I take it out on you Thanks for loving me through all my doom and gloom So before we get a divorce Or before we change our course The Best I can do is try to improve

We used to be more motivated with each other Well, that was before we shared pillows and covers Now I wake up and your right next to me snoring Your making It hard to get up in the morning So let’s set some ground rules but let’s not go crazy I like being busy but love makes me lazy And we get to cuddle when we watch tv But please make me do something productive this evening We have to get up at 8 and jog for 3 miles Unless it’s warm with no breeze or below 50 degrees We can only eat pizza one day a week unless its period week and you are cooking for me instead of tv, instead of tv, instead of tv, we should read a book if its good we might be making too many exceptions but we got out of bed so lets give ourselves credit rules need tweaking schedules need to be altered we’re pretty bad a order, but we’re really good lawyers now I’ve got my arm around you in the kitchen but it’s not on the couch so let’s make the revision we can touch if 6 feet from a cushion and as long as we’re not in the seated position we have to limit the time that the tv is on unless we pre-agree to a marathon we can go a day without kissing breaks unless on that day we need a kissing break and did we mention, and did we mention this is effective starting 2016, maybe 17 based on your work schedule or your hair appointments
