Close Calls

So, those of you lucky enough to have the new album, Close Calls With Brick Walls, what do you think of it? Personally, I fucking love it. I'm a die-hard fan, so I knew I would, but I'll be honest it took me a bit to get used to the songs. But once I gave the album a couple listens, it hit me pretty hard. It's certainly his most ambitious album so far, it's nothing really like his old stuff. It still has a lot of core elements that make his music so great, but it's far more experimental. Experimental sounds bad for a hard rocker like AWK, but I assure you, it's not. Just listen to "Pushing Drugs" and you get an idea how trying new things can come out awesome. "Not Going to Bed" is totally classic Andrew, as well as "I Want to See You Go Wild". "Close Calls with Bal Harbor," "Doctor Dumont," and "Golden Eyed Dog" are pretty out there, but they really add to the album.

If you can, pick up the Korean edition with the extra songs. The extra songs sound like earlier-career, almost pre-I Get Wet stuff. They're really good, and the lyrics are just... well, AWK. "Let's Go On a Date" is probably the creepiest, but awesome, song about a girl ever. "I Want Your Face" is pretty awesomely weird too! Fucking hell, I love this album, it is just glorious.

Get it.

"Let's Go On a Date" by Andrew WK:

Even though you don't know me
I know that you live alone because I listen to you cry
Even though you don't know me
whoa-oh-oh comfort that you loan (?) from an undercover spy
Even though you don't know me
I wanna wanna take you on a date

Let's go on a date, let's go on a date (go on a date)
Let's go on a date, let's go on a date (I wanna take you on a date)
Let's go on a date, let's go on a date (go on a date)
Let's go on a date, let's go on a date (I wanna take you on a date)
Even though you don't know me
I know I can treat you right, and can keep you satisfied
Even though you don't know me
You're my angel, gosh, I wish I wasn't so shy
Even though you don't know me
I wanna wanna take you out
I wanna wanna take you on a date

Let's go on a date, let's go on a date (go on a date)
Let's go on a date, let's go on a date (I wanna take you on a date)
Let's go on a date, let's go on a date (go on a date)
Let's go on a date, let's go on a date (I wanna take you on a date)

I wanna take you
(I wanna take you on a date)
I wanna take you
(I wanna take you on a date)
To a nightclub, to a restaurant, to the movies
(I wanna take you on a date)
And then to your place, and maybe first base (and maybe second base!)
(I wanna take you on a date)
To a nightclub, to a restaurant, to the movies
And then to your place, and maybe third base, and maybe outer space!

Let's go on a date!
Let's go on a date!
Let's go on a date!
Let's go on a date!
