Biography

Brooklyn-based lo-fi disciples Please Dept. deploy shambling, off-kilter rhythms and dry, deadpan vocals against the old and new sounds of lethargic synth-pop. The band often plays throughout the New York area, and has performed with bands and artists such as Of Montreal, Dan Deacon, and Kimya Dawson.

Lyrics

Baptist Party

Written By: Chris Hembree

I crashed a baptist party in the rec hall,
Offered the pastor a shot of pentecostal scotch
I parked my stingray hoverboard
Pulled two tumblers out of my sleeves and...

Half the congregration ate it up, yeah
Curiosity killed everybody else
I swore on a tract not to tell what I wanna tell now

If I could cook the books
Then we could say hey, this had happened all right
But I can't find the books
So you gotta get out
Get out of my life

Brothers and sisters, come follow me, come on
I like you folks a lot
You are nothing like what I thought
Come on leave the broken bottles on the floor
Let's bolt outside and climb a sycamore

If I could cook the books
Then we could say hey, this had happened all right
But I can't find the books
So you gotta get out
Get out of my life
