  • This limited edition disc and packaging are designed to look like a miniature vinyl record. Not only is the cover art designed to have that vintage album feel, but it comes in a cardboard sleeve just like a record. The disc itself is designed with a black textured top that looks and feels like a 45 rpm vinyl. Each disc is hand-stamped with the Klopfenpop logo and the album title is hand-written onto the center label by the Klopfenpop himself.

about

Featuring a plethora of b-side material and two new singles, this EP marks a turning point for Klopfenpop. More vinyl-centric production is evident in the 5 instrumentals included on this release and a more focused, thoughtful vision is present throughout.

Including collaborations with Ultraklystron, Johnny Nero Action Hero, Maros, NES-T, Tyler Smith, and Packy Lundholm (of I Fight Dragons), this EP is bound to be regarded as a rare glimpse at the future trajectory of Klopfenpop's music.

Along with 8 completely unreleased cuts, this EP includes two track that, prior to this release, have only ever performed live. One is a mashup seen only at a show during PAX2011 by 800 people of "Dual Wield" (from Klopfenpop's freshman release "Temptations of the Fresh") and Johnny Nero Action Hero's "Stillwig". The other, the non-demo version of "Tough Guise", appears here in it's first ever studio form.

Track Name: 1995 feat. NES-T & Packy Lundholm (Produced by Tyler Smith)
Droplets from sprinklers glisten in the sun
Rainbows refractin’ off every single one
Slip slide and grass hill, hamburger gas grill
Boombox, Warren G, “Regulators,” mass ill

Ultraviolet eminence
Evidenced by erythemic dermis on residents
A semblance of good times had outdoors
Complainin’ with your crew mad about chores

“How ‘bout yours?” Not a care in the world.
Worry ‘bout final bosses than ‘bout girls
Scurry toward the tippy tree top chasin’ a squirrel
Hurry for the ice cream shop, it’s chocolate swirl.

The day unfurls—lovely.
Layin’ on my back watchin’ clouds pass above me.
Waitin’ for nothin’, but tomorrow to arrive
Like it was nineteen ninety motherfuckin’ five.


All we wanna do is ride around in the sun
Chillin’ with the crew and we’re down for some fun


Breakin’ out the bike, it’s a breezy, easy day.
Drop head nods to homies as I’m cruisin’ ‘round the way
Chicken and ribs—the smell permeates the block
Time to roll around the corner; mini-mart candy stock

Cart the treasure trove home for a quick intermission.
Peanut butter jelly—sustenance acquisition.
Returnin’ to the street, Mom attempts to prevent;
Commence the day’s nonsense under false pretense.

No obligations, possibilities abound.
Profound revelation: Ice cream truck. Turn around,
Gotta chase it down, get that push-pop snack fix
Roll past graffiti walls, admirin’ graphics.

Final stop: comic shop. New issue in the back pocket.
Head to a shady spot, last thing on the day’s docket.
Ride bikes everyday, just feelin’ so alive
Like it was nineteen ninety motherfuckin’ five.


All we wanna do is ride around in the sun
Chillin’ with the crew and we’re down for some fun


Days stretch into forever—keepin’ it real.
A couple water gun fights, then bombin’ a hill,
backyard trampoline, never sittin’ still.
Even so, keepin’ it chill from ’95 till

Gettin’ late, headin’ home, tuckered out
Collapse into a cul-de-sac coma, no doubt
Just can’t get to sleep, though, it’s still light outside
Like it was nineteen ninety motherfuckin’ five.


All we wanna do is ride around in the sun
Chillin’ with the crew and we’re down for some fun

All we wanna do is ride around in the sun
Chillin’ with the crew and we’re down for some fun
