Common Grackle's first proper recording since 2010's indie-rap / bedroom-pop experiment "The Great Depression". Here, the duo meticulously careen between coarse and delicate, comic and candid, all condensed into a 5 part song cycle recorded over several months. A small token of what's still to come.



Part One:

Return of the Grack

Return of the Grack

We're coming back like a panic attack

Straight off the top: I'm a severed dread

Tie it round your finger so you never forget

Part Two:

I'm thinking of that cool, cold high school queen with her blue dress over her jeans and I don't expect you to know what this means

Part Three:

Waiting around here like a mannequin with khakis and a cardigan

About as clever as a bowling pin

But this dummy don't take no shit

I'm lost in the thought of it

Yeah homie don't take no shit

Straight bitter at the thought of it

Playing the world's tiniest violin while gliding on banana skin

Cool like a Canadian raisin

I was a grape now I'm dry as shit

Feeling bitter at the thought of it

Oh but this raisin don't take no shit

Staring off in the thought of it

I'm hanging tough here like a mannequin with plastic hair and flawless skin

But I'm not sure where to begin

Part Four:

Sorry sorry sorry

That's my never-ending story

I'm in that swamp of sadness

I lost my damn pony

I lost my damn phone

How's my homie supposed to phone me?

I found a baby rabbit last night in the backyard

Checked back on him in the morning

He was rock hard

Sorry sorry sorry

So I'm digging a hole and I'm putting him in it

Sorry sorry sorry

So I'm bringing the grackle back

It's been a minute

Part Five:

Hey, some changes haven't been saved

Hey, Would you like to close anyway?

Why do nerds grow goatees?

Why is this red light on?

We will always love Kamp Krusty

I broke that bong

Now I own that bong

Hey, some changes haven't been saved

Hey, Would you like to close anyway?

No No No No more laptops on stage
