about

The Smile Case Glen Meyer, Ontario

“After 10 years of releasing albums and touring as a solo artist Ben Andress decided to drop the acoustic, pick up an electric, and convince some friends to start a very loud band with him. 'Angel Beach' is the perfect summer breakup album. With clever lyrics and heartfelt honesty it is sure to tug at listeners emotions.” ... more

Track Name: Murder Weather (demo)
The shed was tucked away about a five minute walk away from the beach. I've been there before. The path leading to never maintained. The further I wander the fainter the sea. I always figured I deserved this. I never asked why. I always figured I deserved this. I never asked why. I guess I'm always high. Maybe I smoke to much? I guess only half care. I guess I do it all the time. I've been there before. The invitation is always in the air. The further I wander the more I find myself lost at sea. Take a deep breath and the next thing I know I'm ankle deep standing on a sandbar miles from shore and everyone I have every met through my whole life is just standing there. Looking back at me. Their lips are moving however I can't hear a word they are saying.
Track Name: Kim Mitchell's Patio Lanterns (demo)
I don't know what I was thinking but I was thinking of getting out of bed today but that door. I don't know what I was thinking but I started drinking again. I'm in too deep. Three days straight and I can't keep my head on straight and all I think about is that door. There is kids on the patio drinking. I can't hear a word they are saying over the Kim Mitchell song that is playing. I don't know what I was thinking but I started drinking again. I'm in too deep. I'm four days straight and I can't think straight. Keep my head on. I don't know what to do except go through that door. There is kids on the patio drinking. I can't hear a word they are saying over the Kim Mitchell song that is playing.
Track Name: Dissonant (demo)
Could you tell a lie if I asked you to? Could you tell a lie? Could you kill a fly if I asked you to? Could you kill a fly? Could you tell a lie? Could you tell I lied? Could you tell a lie? Could you tell I lied? Could you tell a lie? Could you tell I lie? There was a time in my life where I would lay awake and wonder if there were hidden cameras in my smoke detectors watching my moves detecting my lies and now I know it's just microphones recording my heartbeat and now that I'm older I realize just how goddamn unimportant I really am. Could you tell I lied? Could you tell a lie? Could you tell I lie? Could you tell a lie? Could you tell I lied? Could you tell a lie? There was a time in my life where I would lay awake and wonder if there were hidden cameras in my smoke detectors watching my moves detecting my lies and now I know it's just microphones recording my heartbeat and now that I'm older I realize just how goddamn unimportant I really am.
Track Name: The Going Is Good (demo)
It's hard to believe after all these years you still end up showing up in my dreams. It seemed so real. I could touch your face. I awoke in some other place. When the going is good it's really good. When it stops you know it stops. It's hard to believe after all these years you still end up showing up. It seems so real. I could hear your voice. I awoke in some other place. When the going is good it's really good. When it stops you know it stops.
Track Name: Two Feet & A Heartbeat (demo)
I know it's the furthest thing from the truth but you got to believe me that all I need is for someone to call and tell me it's where we are suppose to be. I know it's the furthest thing from the fact but the matter of fact is that the fact at hand is that you always planned to leave. You'll find some way to break my back. You've got two feet and a heartbeat so go do it yourself. You might end up on a beach with a Popsicle in the sun. I know it's the furthest thing from the truth but you've got to believe me that all I need is you and all that you need is me. You'll find some way to haunt me back. You've got two feet and a heartbeat so go do it yourself. You might end up on a beach with a Popsicle in the sun.
Track Name: I Don't Want It To Go To Hell (demo)
I awoke feeling guiltier than I normally do and I choked at the words. I thought I heard your name. I don't want it anymore. I awoke from a dream or maybe a memory and I awoke feeling ashamed. I just want to know that you are alright somewhere out there. I don't want it. I don't want to pull in even though I might see you again. I don't want it. Even if it means that I can see you again I'd rather stay here with all my friends. Even if it means that I get to see you again I'd rather stay here. We all go. I just can't let go. I don't want it. I don't want it to go to hell.
Track Name: Half A Day Away (demo)
It's something in your dialect. The way you hold your cigarettes. You have a phone call it's collect. It's me. Do you accept? Do you? I'm a half a day away from home I need your help. Talk to me I feel so alone. I'm just trying to find my way back home. I know trouble when I see it. It's weird it's like I seek it. It's sometime somewhere actually it's only three o'clock. It's something in the way of how I'm never there and I never care. Maybe I do care somewhere past this dead stare. I'm scared. I'm just trying to find my way back home.
Track Name: Never Be As Cool (demo)
oh you think you're so hip. You'll get old one day and lose your health. Break a hip when you try to dance to all those dusty records on your shelf. I'm thinking theoretical. I knew the day I sat there and sorted your vinyl alphabetical that I could never be as cool as you wanted me to. I want you too and you wanted me too and I wanted you too. oh you think you're so in. Innocence will only get you so far man. Break a sweat when you try to list all those awesome things you've done. I'm thinking hypocritical. I knew the day I met you that you'd be nothing short of radical. I will never be as cool as you wanted me to. Yeah I wanted you too. Yeah I wanted you.
Track Name: Pill Sick (demo)
Think anyone will ever figure it out? I don't take them for the pain. Oh shit I think I'm pill sick. Just need to stay in bed today. My body aches all the time. Sending shivers down my spine. It's too late. I've got to go. My time is gone. Oh shit I think I'm pill sick. Just need to stay in bed today. Think anyone will every figure me out? I don't take them for the pain. Oh shit I think I'm pill sick. I need to stay. I need to lay. I need to stay in bed all day.
Track Name: Lifetimes (demo)
Oh how the years go by. It feels like another life. It feels like it has been a lifetime. Oh how the years go by. I recall the name but can't picture the face. I know your name. I know your name. Wouldn't you like to know what I have been up to? I have been thinking of you. Oh how the years go by. It was all just one big lie. Oh how the years go by. I can recall the name but neither the time or place. I know your name. I know your name! Wouldn't you like to know what I have been up to? I know that we are through but I'm still here just thinking of you.
