Show Review

The young, underground Brooklyn music scene is one that continuously sprouts new faces and sounds. Sparked by British indie-pop of the 1980s, Ski Lodge brings forth a new chapter in jangle-pop. The foursome of Brooklynites formed in 2011 behind singer and songwriter Andrew Marr. Clean-cut, dreamy guitar riffs and meaningful lyrics have brought the band to the attention of Dovecote Records, with whom they will release their eponymous EP in September.

The New York up-and-comers recently made their way down south for a performance at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel. Ski Lodge breezed through their intimate set with precision and got the audience back into the mellow swing of jangle-pop.

Transcript

I haven't always been this way.
Nobody ever showed me how to save my face
But I always thought that I couldn't do any wrong.
Show me your cards, and I will fold.
Life should never be the grief you know.
I always knew that this wouldn't last for long.
Tragedy always gets me when that was place to fall
And all at once the fireworks were gone And all at once you saved me
And all at once the fireworks were gone And all at once you saved me
Ooooh
Well, I would die to be, just to be someone just to be someone that you love
And I would die to be, just to be something
Just to be something in your dreams And I am tired of sleeping in car rides.
I would like someone to talk to me and I am tired of
You'd like to be proper.
But I have seen the other side of you.
I would die to be, come inside to me, bad intentions of mine
Well, I have gone away.
This summer's too long now.
The summer's too long for us to stay.
And I have tried to be, just to be stupid
Just to be stupid for the day.
I would die to be, come inside to me, bad I would die to be, come inside to me, bad intentions of mine.
Like some poster child for the weary eyed, no significance to find.
Well I've tried in your heart.
And it's strikingly cold, no more than ten years old, well I'd have to say
Well, I would die to be, would die to be, would die to be...
- Thanks, we're Ski Lodge from New York.
Thanks for having us.
It's been so long down on this southern tip.
My lungs are strong.
They're strong enough to handle this seat.
You send me down.
"No," they said, "don't come back."
Well I've been found, and now I don't want to.
Well, they always say, "you've got the eyes of a child."
How do we not know it would turn out to be such a liar?
I made a mistake.
Well, I said I was wrong.
Did I need to stay here quite this long?
They'll come after me.
They'll come after me, I know.
I would've never gone.
I would've never given up a mile!
On a humid day, pressed against the wall
When I'm losing all my things, Does it pay to be strong?
What if I had stayed? What if I had it to lose?
Oooh, would it change my mind? Would this be my only move?
Oooh, oooh, whoa, oh
Whoa, oh whoa, oh
Whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh
They'll come after me.
They'll come after me, I know.
I would've never gone.
I would've never given up a mile!
They'll come after me.
They'll come after me, I know.
I would've never gone.
I would've never given up a mile!
- Thanks.
Big heart say your goodbyes.
It's your, it is your time to go.
Big smile turned to a frown.
Put me into the ground.
Big heart, when will you fail me? I feel you stopping all the time.
And what if I needed you to feel? What if I needed you to love?
And what if I needed you tonight? Would you just be gone?
And If I could, well I would shut you down.
Oooh and if I could, well I would rip you out.
Oooh and If I could, I would tear you from my own chest.
Oh, and I would let you go to sleep.
You said you had a big heart, big heart, big heart for me.
Big heart, big heart, big heart for me.
And if I said, if I said, I don't want your pity, would you leave?
Would you stop trying, Oh, to get to me?
And if I said, if I said, I don't want your pity.
Would you leave me to my shitty little life?
You said you had a big heart, big heart, big heart for me.
Big heart, big heart, big heart for me.
Don't you cave.
You don't have to be like me.
You don't have to make the same mistakes.
Find yourself and get down on one knee.
Pray to anything you've got.
Oooh, ooh, I never wanted, I never wanted anything to do.
I never wanted, I never wanted anything to do to.
You don't have to take yourself so seriously.
You don't have to do everything I do just to feel like you fit in.
I never wanted, I never wanted anything to do to.
I never wanted, I never wanted anything to do to.
Did it feel so good to know that there's nothing I can, nothing I can do?
Well, is it in my mind or did I taint you?
Well, is it in my mind or did I ruin you?
Well, is it in my mind, or did I taint you?
Well, is it in my mind, or did I ruin your life?
I never wanted, I never wanted anything to do to.
I never wanted, I never wanted anything to do to.
Did it feel so good to know there's nothing I can, nothing I can do?
What am I to say? What will I do? You've got a set of feelings too.
I'll beat them down.
I'll beat them down.
I'm looking for a change of heart.
And I've never really looked too hard.
Oh, well I've been sad, but I have a reason, don't I?
Oh, well I've been mad about everything I could have been without you.
And I'm looking for a change of heart.
And I've never really looked too far.
Oh, just to be like you is all I ever wanted to be
Scared and uncommitted to the truth that's what I thought I should be
You were a simple man with a simple life But you drank yourself into a tomb
But it don't seem so bad It don't seem so bad
Looking like you do And it pains me to say
Oh, you've got to trust yourself Because it's okay for you to die tonight
And I won't make excuses anymore, anymore
Oh, simple man with a simple life but you made yourself the way you are
And It don't seem so bad It don't seem so bad and you don't look so sad
Well it pains me to say
Won't you change your mind? Step out from behind the wall.
Peace is hard to find Adolescent woes
Don't be scared.
You'll only be this way forever.
Trapped down there, like a beat and worn out sweater.
It don't seem so bad It don't seem so bad It don't seem so bad
And it pains me to say
- Thanks, have a good night.

Artist Bio

Brooklyn-based indie pop group Ski Lodge were formed in 2011 by singer/songwriter Andrew Marr.
Taking inspiration from classic U.K. indie pop of the mid-'80s, the band's jangling guitars and heartfelt lyrics would have sounded right then, but also fit 2011 just as well. Marr hooked up with Dovecote Records for the release of a self-titled four-song EP in early September, just after Ski Lodge played their first show at the Cake Shop in New York. After a year-plus spent playing shows and recording, the band (now consisting of Marr plus Jared O'Connell, John Barinaga, and Tim McCoy) returned in April of 2013 with a new single for Dovecote called "Just to Be Like You." ~ Tim Sendra
