about

Milwaukee's rising scramble-pop stars The Fatty Acids drop their first EP for London collective Pink Lizard Music before heading out on their summer tour of the US.

These guys have worked their way up to near-legendary status in their home town and just won the support slot for Flaming Lips at this year's Summerfest.

Releases on Brooklyn’s Uninhabitable Mansions and their own Kribber Krown imprint, the latter mastered by Grammy-nominated Emily Lazar, brought serious interest from the UK; Pink Lizard boss Benbo ended up flying out to Wisconsin to convince the band to sign on the dotted line.

On :0) [alternative title: Clown Nose Cliché Alien and Rainbow Gradient Smiley EP] they introduce us to their new social media coordinator 'beans' in between playing four brilliant, surprising tracks. With two drummers, an extraordinary, freewheeling sense of melody, and up to four moustaches at any given point in time, they surely check every box for lovers of indie pop.

Track Name: podcast intro
Hey guys welcome to the Fatty Podcast, my name is Josh, you are tuned in to episode 30,219 wow we are really stacking em up here. Today on the show we have our social media coordinator. His name is Beans and we are very blessed to have him. You know I was back at yoga – hold on one second
Track Name: Airsick (Edit)
Little sister, I'd such little wisdom
To share before you ran away
Even moments you were sour contend with
My sweetest memories retained

Not born in supernovas to behave like this
Maybe she knew and that's why she is where she is
Every city in the world's a candidate
Dream in the clouds, searching for you
Wake up alone and airsick

Little sister, never mind a victor
And never mind a Golden Age
Where are we?
The only certain answer:
Between umbilical and grave
Track Name: beans intro (ft. beans)
Beans you wanna just like introduce yourself over the like um

– Hi my name is beans that is my legal name I changed it from Buck Jacobessen about 14.5 years ago and I could not be happier with the result. I represent The Fatty Acids, a rock group they have a saxophone, a trumpet, a 7-string guitar and slap bass. I don’t know exactly how successful they’ll be, but I’m excited to represent them and think that they could do well in you know many different markets.
Track Name: Flamingo Graveyard
You are a really funny person to talk to about people that have broken hearts
And I know just what you're trying to get into and I'm confident that I want no part
And maybe I'll come to view this situation with an overwhelming sense of regret
But I like these kids and I like where I'm at and what do you want me to say beyond that?
On that?

There are times that I feel more at home than
I thought could
I thought could
I thought could ever one's life here be

But I wish it were the 80s
I wish we could be happy
I wish I hadn't seen you on his lap that evening
What I want, the only thing in life, is to be able to follow my own advice

Dance with who you want
Even in the night
I can't pretend that I ain't gonna send them right back to the bowl
Call it a punchline
You bought up all the land under my wandering mind

But I wish it were the 90s
I wish that you were breathing
And why does everybody that I believe in
Eliminate their map before their time
And why can't you just dance to anything that feels right?

But I wish it were 2000
I wish the war were underway
I wish that we could take back what we gave
And I wish that I could mean exactly what I say
I lie right through my pearly whites like tooth decay

I wish it were the future
I wish that we were older and wiser
Settled down in a mortgaged home
I'd hold her like a grudge
I'd freeze the wedding cake
I'd look at her as if I didn't know the divorce rate
Track Name: favorite chord (ft. beans)
So beans what’s your favourite like. I know this is cliché but like what’s your favourite chord?

– Oh, the chord? Play, play a really long chord, like that helps a lot. You know it’s got like 8, 9, or four or five notes. Just at the same time. That’s my favourite chord. More like a long string from one point to the other point.
Track Name: Sportskin (ft. Monica Martin)
I know it's been a weird one friends
But we're gonna get out of our stuffy houses soon
So much to address
Forget the science like we always do
And soak up record highs

We cut the sleeves off our clothes
And find the beach where we left it
Naked or in lab coats
We test the water's depth

We'll pay for this for years
Honeymooning to an island we can't
Point to on a map
We'll make the best of it
Build a park atop the landfill
Sell our wedding bands for scrap

We cut the sleeves off our clothes
And find the beach where we left it
With or without ozone
We sport our sun-soaked skin
Track Name: trickle-down economics (ft. beans)
So Beans we got you know Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, GoFamily, Christian Mingle. Tweet um Tinder. Myspace. Ingr. Pinterest. Which one can we count on to be the next big cash cow?

– Yeah it’s like a cross-platform combination of a buyout of several of those websites. Pinterest, Myspace, IrieJam, Pitchfork. So it’s like that kind of thing like. You know, it’s like many eggs in different baskets, distributing wealth. You just gotta distribute the eggs, if you’re a band now.

Did you guys know trickle-down economics is like real it actually works?

– It really works.

– Does anybody know that? Can we just take a second to realise that works?

– Trickle-down economics really works.
Track Name: I Try Not To Freak Out About It
i like anybody else
i am arranged of many cells
and am ashamed of what my mouth
silently says to no one else

i should have gone back to school
but i am sleeping by the pool
and is it kidney-shaped and cool?
and are my tits symmetrical?

i am staring at a screen
and i am screaming for a team
we laugh it off but truthfully
i am afraid of what it means

the way the chains are all arranged
makes every city look the same
and every war our parents waged
we are still fighting here today

then why the disconnect
then why the disconnect
between the way i want to and the way i live?
Track Name: wow beans (ft. beans)
That’s the bottom line.

– Lemme tell you something. One fan with a million dollars is the same as a million fans with one dollar.

– Beans!

– Wow beans.

– Wow beans.

– Wow beans.
