about

Like, Mountains Brooklyn, New York

Like, Mountains is a side-project of The Woes' Osei Essed, and the first project with his wife. The recently stripped-down 3- piece has enjoyed playing Upstairs at the Livng Roon, downstairs at Cake Shop and more than a couple street fairs this summer, in addition to The Rock Shop and Sunny's Bar (Red Hook).
They are hard at work on a series of Bandcamp-only mini-albums, and they love you the most.

Track Name: If We Break
If we break up right now, there won't be kids, there won't be houses to saw up
Track Name: Mexico
All the kids here have been talking
They wanna go down South/to Mexico
It's the closest furthest place/escape from what we know

They leave behind

If he's the motor/and she's the wheels
It takes both of them/all four hands to steer
If he leaves she/on the road
Neither has the ways or means to go

They leave behind/all the things/that might have been.

This is me/calling you/we are meant to be together
I feel free/it's not forever
Maybe you could hate me/maybe i could hate you
That might make it easy/that might set me free

We'd leave behind/all the things that might have been/if we had stayed together

All the kids here have been talking
They wanna go down South/to Mexico
Track Name: Coney Island
Let us be lovers, he said, I'll take you to Paris.
Let us be lovers, he said, and you shall see Rome
from a carriage, like Princess Diana.
Let us be lovers, he said, but he didn't mean it.
He was always in it to the end.

Let's get some clam strips, we'll ride on The Cyclone.
Let's get some tall boys, i can drink every ounce of forty in the sun in the morning.
Let's go to the freak show - how long can you stand there?
Will you still be standing in the end?

Let us be lovers, he said, and then...we were.
If I wear my mother's white dress, then we can be married at midday and gone by the sunset.
And since we are unsure and un-aging
We will be together in the end.
Track Name: Call Me A Liar
What will we do when the water runs out?
We'll drink wine all day and be drunk all the time
Annie will come, and she say, "What are you doing?
What are you doing with your life?"

Holed up for days in boat tied to a buoy
The phases of the moon have occupied our nights
Do you know where you are in the grandeur?
Yeah we know where we are in the grander scheme of things

floating is like flying/at least we think it is
call me a liar if i said we'd been birds
floating is like flying/at least we think it is

we've never been birds
Track Name: Jesusland
I lived a year out there in jesusland/it was like death on the installment plan
Follow my leader/what might be bothering you
You're gonna have to learn to let go and let god

The most dangerous thing is happening to me

Shut in for days/with nothing to do
To pass the time/the pain
Pink-spattered snow/I buried it by the front door
By the time spring comes nobody will know

The most dangerous thing is happening to me here

So you got sad/you settled down
Amid the birds always meddling/with the bees
And you could be happy, you could be blessed
You could claim it was your best.

Track Name: MexicoLA
All of the girls in Southern California/they all look the same to me/the way they take for granted/living by the sea
They never say goodbye/they say, "Adios, amigos"/by which they mean/"to hell with you"

I want to a girl/from Mexico City/someone told me the streets are filled/with a prettier, kinder girl
They never say goodbye/they say, "Adios, amigos"/by which they mean/"with God I wish you may go"

All of the girls in Southern California/they all look the same to me/the way they take for granted/living by the sea
They never say goodbye/they say, "Adios, amigos"
Track Name: NYvsLA
I was gonna start running/I was gonna start starving
Instead I have been sitting here/eating my fool heart out
Write me when you get there/I wish you the best
If you can try not to lie/tell me you don't miss me at all

Tell me if you miss me at all

If the palm trees start to scare you/if the skyline seems too wide to last 'til morning
That's just memory/the night will always pass and leave you
Victor on the sand and Mary in your ear/whispering:
Don't you fret you're better than them/play them like the fools they are

Play them like the fools they are

On second thought don't write to me/your pen is much too clever
I don't want a second guess/I'm happy if you're far away
And lonely

If you're far away from me

Working nightshifts serving sailors/everybody knows
Fools get sick like this/the night air she does it every time
The only cure I've heard/is 9 miles every morning
There's silence at the bottom of my bottle

Tell me if you miss me at all
