"Sometimes it's better if party isn't pretty"
'Sup, Beach Bums here from somewhere in Cali, playing some really grungy/dirty surf punk, I have a soft spot in my heart for surf-anything so if it's got the beach feel you better believe I'm going to be a fan.

Cool thing about Beach Bums that their songs aren't pretty and nice ALL the time, there's rough PARTS that make you wanna do silly moves in the pit or pull your friends hair as your singing as in the first track "Can't Understand". But as soon as it's over, they move into a cool western-vibe for "Spookylust" which kinda serves as the ballad on the ep. The next few songs are pretty stock punk/surf-rock songs with lyrics about either girls or about choking out your friends or something like that. I do like the use of the feedback in "Have You Ever", it's subtle, but very psychedelic. You can definitely feel influences of NOFX which is cool. So based of this current description, y'all should love this EP so get it, cuz it'z free."

- Kasey Denton (Music iz Good)

I recorded this EP purely out of fun & boredom. I hope you like it.

Track Name: Can't Understand
I can't really understand
Why we can't just have some fun
Everybody wants a plan
I just wanna jam in the sun
Hit some chords, blast some drums
We're all trying to have some fun
Sing and scream at the top of our lungs
To a catchy tune

Track Name: Spookylust
Did you hear that at the door?
The howling's louder than before.
As the echo starts to grow
My own shadow leaves the floor
Wild are the bugs that take feast on rotting flesh
There's no pity for rejects now, who never did their best.

Can't even free the demons I've let into me.
Burning melts the smiles that will rot their for eternity.
Hear all the victims we've let out to die.
Their tears will only burn us more and leave us hear to cry.

We've been left with guilty conscience
and we plead just to repent
But there's no ear on our voices, only lashes of torment
Recollection kills and it dines on unknown fear
Rape is such a frightful word
Hearing once you're hear


There's no forgiveness for what we've done.
Track Name: One To Talk
Growing thin; the thread is breaking.
Caving in, mind is aching.
Stop acting so damn arrogant, you've made the same mistake.
If you've reached the boiling point, say it to my face.

Let it all out now, let it all out.
Let it all out now, let it all out.

Put us down with repitition.
Just a living contradiction.
When will you realize that you haven't changed a bit?
So fed up, just want to quit.

and you haven't got a clue that it's all been done by you.
and you haven't got a clue that it's all been done by you.
and you haven't got a clue that it's all been done by you.
and you haven't got a clue that it's all been done by you.
Track Name: My Turn
yeah, so I hear from our mututal friend
the trash talk that you've said all about me.
kind of sucks to hear and it got me wondering
what did I ever do to deserve such an ugly silence?
cause everytime we've passed I've always remained quiet.

my best intentions now leave me with questions.
was talking so nicely bout' you my mistake?

i don't stalk your twitter
i can care less what you do
yeah, I go to shows a lot so I may run into you
i always had something nice to say
but I guess you thought a different way
I heard it from another mouth
so I hope you hear this straight from me
go on, please live a happy life
Track Name: Have You Ever
have you ever fell in love?
have you ever found the one?
have you ever held their hand?
hug them like it'll never end.
have you ever climbed a tree?
or took a long walk on the beach?
have you ever had a care?
have you wished they'd be there?

what runs through your mind?
when you lye in bed at night...
this is all that I think.
just questioning everything.

have you ever lost a friend?
have you ever made amends?
have you ever had a dream?
have you ever cried yourself to sleep?
have you ever lost it all?
wondered if it's all your fault?
have you ever told a lie?
have you ever said goodbye?

have you ever wondered?
have you ever wondered if you can start again?
Track Name: Running In Circles
have you ever wondered about your deepest fear?
i did all the time. it was watching her disappear.
and now weeks later. i'm still bumming out.
all the pictures are a constant reminder of how...

i can't stray from the past
and although i know that nothing ever lasts
it's easier said than done, can't turn my back from the sun
running in circles, when all i can do
when it all comes back to you

sitting in bed looking up at the walls
derailed by the thought, slowest walk through the halls
the silence builds tension
divide by a line
to throw empty efforts i made in my mind
some try to comfort. some back away.
and everyone thinks they ahve something to say.
its all been repeated, the same advice.
everyone thinks that they're suddenly nice.
