Ahh!!! 02:26
I don't want to make you cry I don't want to make you cry But wouldn't it be worse if I? Told a truth that was a lie? Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!! Sometimes I really want to die Sometimes I really want to die But wouldn't it be worse if I? Were to die and still want to be alive? Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!

Baby Car 05:29
When you leave your house in your baby car Fending off the universe from getting too damn hard Valiant efforts bend the fabric of space-time Into what you make of it whatever you desire And just when it will seem that all hope as been lost just keep your heart parts moving til day breaks the dark And honesty will ring through the bullshit false distorting reality convincing you you're not All within yourself complete with consciousness is everything you're looking for pull up a chair and sit And discard all that pain that you think you deserve and redirect your suffering to cut your learning curve with magic marker sweeps draw your favorite lines make sure that you hold them dear cause deeply they divide you from the outside distinguishing your trace from anything that's lesser than what you love so much it ache's! keeping you awake are dream delivering the knowledge that you have something that no body can take so take care of yourself your first and last real friend cause who else can you count upon to be there in the end? It's all up to you the way you react to the shit left on your doorstep and that foot you put into Your frustrations will burn you up from inside embrace any consonance to sustain over time and i know that it's hard to keep it together in this world of chaos some order can be procured if you keep your ears on call for your signature song just for you a melody for you to sing along ooooooooo lalalala ooooooooo lalalala ooooooooo lalalala ooooooooo lalalalala

Friends 03:50
Let's go to the pool in our underwear See if i care if you take a shirt off my back Let's get kicked out of a bar just for the kicks cause you know that what makes us all tick I miss my friends I miss my friends til i see them again I can't wait to get back to Bryan I miss my friends I miss my friends til i see them again I hope they know how much i love them Let's go down town and see how far down we can get and not ever quite reach the bottom cause you know we can get down yeah we can get all the way down and if you fall down ill be there to help you up I miss my friends I miss my friends til i see them again I can't wait to get back to Bryan I miss my friends I miss my friends til i see them again I hope they know how much i love them I miss my friends I miss my friends til i see them again I miss my friends I miss my friends til i see them again I miss my friend i miss my friends i miss my friends i miss my friends i miss my friends i miss my friends i hope they know how much i love them <3

about

Imagine a world where the
current garage rock brigade of
Lizard Gizzard Wizard and Ty
Seagal worshippers decided
that perhaps listening to Deer
Tick and learning a thing or two
from the countrier side of bar
carousing might actually be a
good thing to do. That seems
like an inner conversation the
dudes in Wisdom Cat had at one
point and decided to adopt for
they own personal credo. And
it’s a credo that works well for
them on their debut album, You
Got This. Considering that 2/3
of the band played a particularly
driving version of Texas ol’
timey music in Desdimona and
the other third played anthemic
‘00s pop-punk in Unicorndog it
should come as no surprise that
such a racket should come from
the three of them together in
room. The Unicorndog peaks
out in “Friends”, the closest
thing to a theme song for
Downtown Bryan as has ever
been made by a local band. The
Desdimona as filtered through a
rock and roll band comes in
through the jangly “Baby Car”.
“Kites” has a surprisingly gentle
and navel-gazing stoned afternoon vibe, “Tom Cat” lists all
the endearing characteristics of
cats that only cat lovers could
love.
If I have one complaint is that
the album probably might could
have stood for more tonal
variety or perhaps have been a
little shorter, but it is the band’s
first album and it very much is a
“live in the studio” sort of
document that accurately
portrays where these fellas are
coming from. And that’s a
fantastic place, where that is. —

about

Wisdom Cat Austin, Texas

Three best friends playing rock n roll from the soul. We sing about what we know and and what we see in between bouts of laughing so hard we question the condition of our sanity and our underwear on a regular basis. We care about art and love and family and growth and having fun with this fleeting dream we were all lucky enough to have woken up in and agreed to call “life”. May we rock this roll! ... more
