Show Review

When listening to the music of Brooklyn five-piece Fort Lean, one may find it difficult to confidently characterize their music. Instead, their songs will evoke from your imagination a certain seasonal mood. Maybe this is due to their leading single being called "Beach Holiday". Or perhaps it's frontman Keenan Mitchell's beach bum demeanor that evokes a sudden, frenetic craving for cheap tiki bar cocktails. The combination of Fort Lean's catchy rock tunes and their laid back attitudes will transport you to more tropical latitudes.

Last month we had the pleasure of catching these Brooklynites in the temperate, party atmosphere of Austin, Texas while at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel. We suggest you take a load off, fire up that old margarita maker, and enjoy Fort Lean's entire performance.

I want a perfect bottle One that would fill itself up I knew a perfect model She killed herself, but These things They are just bound to happen I'll sing Just for the sound of clapping There is a place where we can go Where it will never rain or snow We go outside The weather's perfect all the time I want a magic pocket All full of gold and silver I had a plastic locket I'd hold if it was still here These things Are stolen, lost or broken I'll sing choking There is a place where we can go Where it will never rain or snow We go outside The weather's perfect all the time
Thanks guys.
Yeah, it's just nice to be here.
We just got here, how about you? You were my dream Dreams never come true If I had one wish I'd give it to you You were my dream Dreams always fall apart If I had one I'd give you my heart
You were my dream You left me all alone You unlocked the door You told them all I was home I'm thinkin' 'bout selling it all We've been caught up with the wrong crowd With the wrong crowd I'm thinkin' 'bout selling it all We've been caught up with the wrong crowd With the wrong crowd
You'll ride in the front I'll ride in the back I'll run my mouth You're keeping track Of every word that I said to you It's on my mind So you can tell it to your friends Don't you realize you waste all the time Stay in the car I'll run inside When I get back I'll make you drive me to the mall That's the only place I want to go Turn on the radio I can't talk so I'll just stare out the window Everything we see is perfect And the sun's in my eyes Everything we see is so good I just have to close my eyes
Shut up and take me to the mall I want to walk from end to end And pierce my ear I want to wander and pretend that you're not here And there is nothing I can do or say And there is nothing I can do
Thank you.
We go anywhere we want We go anywhere at all People say you sense me We say anything we want We say anything at all People say you sense me You could never make us, any of us Oh there's nothing you can do All your friends are gonna envy us We do the things you want I'll buy anything I want I'll buy anything at all I'll throw it all away I'll take anyone I want I'll take anyone at all I'll throw them all away There's nothing you can do I'm coming back for you
You can never make us, any of us Oh there's nothing you can do All your friends are gonna envy us We do the things you want
My house nothing to keep in it My bed but I don't sleep in it They're trying to get high all day Wish you'd try not cryin' today I guess I'll let myself in This mess I'll get myself in Let's go try near the store We'll buy some beer and try to score Oh It's not so hard to be yours It's not so hard Oh If you have to have it don't make it a habit 'Cause when it gets bad It'll tear you apart I'll take it or leave it If you really need it You should try to beat it before it tears you apart I guess we're rich and famous But we're still making payments I need a kick to get me up I hope some kids don't beat me up But it's not so hard to be yours It's not so hard, oh If you have to have it Don't make it a habit 'Cause when it gets bad it'll tear you apart I'll take it or leave it But if you really need it You should try to beat it Before it tears you apart
If you have to have it Don't make it a habit 'Cause when it gets bad it'll tear you apart I'll take it or leave it But if you really need it You should try to beat it Before it tears you apart If you have to have it Don't make it a habit 'Cause when it gets bad it'll tear you apart I'll take it or leave it But if you really need it You should try to beat it Before it tears you apart
Thanks guys.
Caught a fish with my hands And I put it on the grill I'm goin' back down to the beach To find somethin' else to kill I grabbed fruit from the trees And I put it in the sun I don't have to go to work I said I'm fired to my boss Drank till I was sick I slept till I woke up Had a glass of wine Went outside to throw it up Yelled at some kids I took off all my clothes They hit me in the face The blood was pouring out my nose
What a beach holiday What a beach holiday What a beach holiday What a beach holiday
Blood ran down my face I caught it with my hands I took a stick to mark the place Dug a hole in the sand Covered it back up Just as soon as it got full All the blood turned into eggs And all the eggs turned into gold What a perfect way What a picture perfect way to spend Every waking hour Beach holiday
Thanks guys.
Thank you so much.
