about

Hello,

First off we’d like to say thank you for downloading and purchasing our album, we can’t express enough how much it means to us that you enjoy our music enough to support what we do! It’s really a humbling thing to us to know that you are a fan of our music, if not at the very least our cat shirts. Either way, we are eternally grateful.

This album was the work of years of playing music together, hopping from project to project until Carpoolparty was finally born. Through the discovery of Vaporwave as well as strong funk, disco, hip-hop and electronica influences, our music has come into fruition in the form of our debut album, HOT TAPES. Many months of work, sleepless nights, flashes of inspiration, moments of discovery and learning, hundreds if not thousands of hours of listening, and of course, love, were put into the tracks you are going to be listening to today. Is the album perfect? No. But just like life, we don’t think it has to be perfect. We just think it needs enough amounts of love, craziness, fun, nostalgia, and production dust, to adequately share our message. But are we happy with what you’re about to hear? Yes. Very happy. We are proud of the work we have done, we feel it is of a high quality and we are excited to be sharing it with you.

Before we leave you to party like it’s 1999, we’d like to leave you with a little bit of our message: It’s a little bit about all of us, you, me, together. It’s about knowing that even when things get crazy sometimes, we’ll come out alright. We’ll be alright. We’ll be better than before. We’ll still be singing, we’ll still be living, we'll still be feeling alive. We’ll still be playing the music that makes us remember the good times and that we still need each other. We can’t stop thinking about each other, loving each other, and helping each other out. Wherever we go, we belong. Wherever you go, remember, you are always worth the adventure.

Love,
Carpoolparty

Track Name: You Me Together
You, Me, Together...

Together, together, together…
My gender identity is Japanese

You Me Together...
Track Name: Hey Na Na Na
Hey!
Na na na, Na na na, Na na na

I don’t want to leave it alone
We can call each other home
It doesn’t matter anymore
Where we go
Where we go

I wouldn’t want it any other way
Weak knees and thoughts racing
Promise me if this never gets easy
We’ll still be singing
We’ll both be singing like

Hey!
Na na na, Na na na, Na na na
(We’ll still be singing like)

Sometimes it’s strange to me
That we’re anything at all
Because the closer we get
The faster we seem to fall

We’ll still be singing like

Hey!
Na na na, Na na na, Na na na

Sometimes it’s strange to me
That we’re anything at all
Because the closer we get
The faster we seem to fall
Track Name: Feel Alive
Welcoming in the new year, this time I realize
Before I’m your ghost or just turn to dust
I just want to feel alive
Welcoming in the new year, this time I realize
Before I’m your ghost or just turn to dust
I just want to feel alive

Oh baby

I want your magic touch
All day and night
If you want me
Then get ready to ignite

We can feel alive...
I just want to feel alive
I just want to feel alive!

Welcoming in the new year, this time I realize
Before I’m your ghost or just turn to dust
I just want to feel alive
Welcoming in the new year, this time I realize
Before I’m your ghost or just turn to dust
I just want to feel alive

Oh baby

We can feel alive…
I just want to feel alive
I just want to feel alive!
We can feel alive…
I just want to feel alive
I just want to feel alive!

Welcoming in the new year, this time I realize
Before I’m your ghost or just turn to dust

Track Name: Deejay
Could it be it’s just the night?
Maybe it’s the music maybe it’s the lights
But now I feel like you’re just my time
I’ll be your sparks, I’ll steal your heart

I hope the deejay never stops
I wanna be right here while beat drops
And from the ceiling I am believing
My head is in the fog machine clouds
I got a feeling

Do you remember me deejay?
Or are there too many faces in this room?
Am I another face to you?
I’m still wondering if this room gets tiring

Something about you has changed
And now I want you
I’ll take a chance
I want to know if you feel me too

Could it be it’s just the night?
Maybe it’s the music maybe it’s the lights
But now I feel like you’re just my time
I’ll be your sparks, I’ll steal your heart

I think I’m in love with you deejay

Deejay,

Something about you has changed
And now I want you
I’ll take a chance
I want to know if you feel me too

Could it be it’s just the night?
Maybe it’s the music maybe it’s the lights
But now I feel like you’re just my time
I’ll be your sparks, I’ll steal your heart

I think I’m in love with you deejay

Deejay, deejay, deejay...
Track Name: Choking On A Notion
Yeah sometimes I’m out of control
Doing things you shouldn’t know
Wasting my time
Choking on a notion

Yeah,
I’m gonna stop trying being
Something I’m not
I don’t care to be it
I don’t care to be hot
I just want restitution
From the problems that I got
And keep the new ones from
Attaching to the ones that I forgot

Lately I’ve been stealthy
Stepping in the background
Still as the night
Only doing what I wanna do
And what I wanna do
Is strike when it’s right

I’m gonna flow like water
But burn like a flame
Light fire to my desire
Turn my losses into gain
‘Cause I’ve been thinking
Lately, who I used to be
Who I wanna be
How will I be different this week?

Yeah, I’m meditating
Planning and preparing
No more regretting
Resetting, Won’t be letting
My anxiety take control anymore
Because today I know
I’m better than before

Yeah sometimes I’m out of my mind
Wrapped up in useless advice
Wasting my time
Choking on a notion
Yeah sometimes I’m out of control
Doing things you shouldn’t know
Wasting my time
Choking on a notion

Notion yeah,
I’m choking on a notion, notion yeah

In these shallow relationships
I know the paper is the chemistry
And the physics
It moves the world around
And I know I need to listen
But it’s hard to stay calm and collected
Every time I get thrown in collection

Because I wanted a nice education
With papers to prove my qualification
But now the most important documentation I own
Is the notice on my door for my eviction

But we’re not giving up
We’re just getting our things together
Setting gears in motion
As I drive away forever
Using car speakers
To produce our music
Might not be perfect
But the beat’ll make you lose it

We’re calling ourselves just by what we do
Carpoolparty, nice to meet you
We’re not letting
Our anxiety take control anymore
Because we know
We’re better than before

Yeah sometimes I’m out of my mind
Wrapped up in useless advice
Wasting my time
Choking on a notion
Yeah sometimes I’m out of control
Doing things you shouldn’t know
Wasting my time
Choking on a notion

Notion yeah,
I’m choking on a notion, notion yeah

I’m choking on a... (Dance)

Yeah sometimes I’m out of my mind
Wrapped up in useless advice
Wasting my time
Choking on a notion
Yeah sometimes I’m out of control
Doing things you shouldn’t know
Wasting my time
Choking on a notion

Notion yeah,
I’m choking on a notion, notion yeah
Track Name: We'll Be Alright
I want you here, need you by my side
We’ll come out of the wreckage
And we’ll be alright
If we lose control, lose control in a losing fight
We’ll come out of the wreckage
And we’ll be alright

We’re starting fires and we don’t know why
I guess we just want crazy stories in our lives
Rumors are spreading that we’re losing our minds
I guess it’s about time

I guess it’s about time…

I want you here, need you by my side
We’ll come out of the wreckage
And we’ll be alright
If we lose control, lose control in a losing fight
We’ll come out of the wreckage
And we’ll be alright

Alright, alright,
We’re alright

I need your hand to hold (ho hey, ho hey)
‘Cause rumors of our love are spreading, spreading
We’re just bored and a little bit crazy
I guess it’s about time

I guess it’s about time…

I want you here, by my side
I want you here, We’ll be alright

I want you here, need you by my side
We’ll come out of the wreckage
And we’ll be alright
If we lose control, lose control in a losing fight
We’ll come out of the wreckage
And we’ll be alright

Alright, alright,
We’re alright

I want you here, need you by my side
We’ll come out of the wreckage
And we’ll be alright
If we lose control, lose control in a losing fight
We’ll come out of the wreckage
And we’ll be alright

Alright, alright,
We’re alright
Track Name: What To Do Here
Ooo, don’t you know
If there was nobody here
I wouldn’t know what to do here
Ooo, don’t you know (yeah)
If there was nobody here
I wouldn’t know what to do here

Making out with the door unlocked
She hangs on his neck like a silver chain
They could play along
Timing is everything

She’s got a million things to say
She’s got a million things to say
Every chorus was his name
Every chorus was his name

Ooo, don’t you know
If there was nobody here
I wouldn’t know what to do here
Ooo, don’t you know (yeah)
If there was nobody here
I wouldn’t know what to do here

Holding hands through the end of the world
She shines bright like a diamond ring
They could choose their destiny
No surrender no retreat

She’s got a million things to say
She’s got a million things to say
Every chorus was his name
Every chorus was his name

Ooo, don’t you know
If there was nobody here
I wouldn’t know what to do here
Ooo, don’t you know (yeah)
If there was nobody here
I wouldn’t know what to do here

If there was nobody here
I wouldn’t know what to do here
Track Name: Thinking About You
I can’t stop thinking about you
Thinking about you, it’s torture
I can’t stop thinking about you
Thinking about you, it’s torture

I don’t know what you do to me
It’s like you’re controlling me
But you don’t know
I don’t understand
Why I’m so crazy for you
Why can’t you leave me be
Why don’t you go

No

I’m scaring myself
I know you’re bad for my health
But one step closer
I might just lose it
And just go with you, go with you

I know what you’re thinking
I can see it in your eyes
You’re gonna make your move

I can’t stop thinking about you
Thinking about you, it’s torture
I can’t stop thinking about you
Thinking about you, it’s torture

Oh baby

I’m scaring myself
I know you’re bad for my health
But one step closer
I might just lose it
And just go with you, go with you

I know what you’re thinking
I can see it in your eyes
You’re gonna make your move

I can’t stop thinking about you
Thinking about you, it’s torture
I can’t stop thinking about you
Thinking about you, it’s torture

Oh baby

I can’t stop thinking about you
Thinking about you, it’s torture
I can’t stop thinking about you
Thinking about you, it’s torture

Oh baby
Track Name: Hot Tapes
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I turn it up, I turn it up

I turn it up higher
Till the tape’s on fire

Yeah, my car came equipped
With a new CD player
In layers the LEDs would glow
And show the information
Of the laser scan across the trays
Of the six CD changer
Yeah, but then I grew lethargic
Got nostalgic for a time
When I didn’t know what life was
State of the art had an audible fuzz
And the static of the stations
I recorded when they played
My favorite mash-ups
So I hit up the pawn shop
Traded my new player
For a hot tape drive
And then I remembered
There’s just something kinda special
About magnetic information

So now I listen to the hits
In my hot tape drive
Nothing but cassettes
In my hot tape drive
Hot to the touch
When the music is done
Yeah, hot tapes
Are what I listen on

And I turn it up, yeah
I turn it up higher
Tapes on fire, fire, fire, fire

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I turn it up, I turn it up

I turn it up higher
Till the tape’s on fire

Yeah,
Nothing better than
The hot tape analogue
Coming out my speakers
Pumping out the woofers
And the tweeters
Making the bass kick harder
And the treble fly smooth
Yeah, you might argue
This song is a tribute
To the old school
But I’m not old school
I’m simply remembering
I’d rather call this
An ode to my memory
A remedy for zeros and ones

Playing nothing but the best
In my hot tape drive
A sauna for cassettes
Is my hot tape drive
Hot to the touch
When the music is done
Yeah, hot tapes
are what i listen on

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I turn it up, I turn it up

I turn it up higher
Till the tape’s on fire
Track Name: I Don't Care Where I Belong
I don’t care where I belong
Cause wherever we go
Wherever we go we belong

We’re breaking brick houses
Tearing down the walls
It’s complicated
But no one’s gonna see them fall

Take me along
Take me along
I don’t care where I
I don’t care where I
Belong, belong, belong

I know it’s been more than
Two years since your
Major breakdown
And when you’re stressed out
You feel like it just
Happened yesterday
Well I was there then
And I will be here now
And I won’t leave you, no
I won’t leave this way

It’s so invisible
The mental struggle
We tried to be invincible
For each other
But trying to be invincible
Turned out to build
Too many walls
So now our walls are rubble
So now our walls are rubble

We’re breaking brick houses
Tearing down the walls
It’s complicated
But no one’s gonna see them fall

Take me along
Take me along
I don’t care where I
I don’t care where I
Belong, belong, belong

We’re breaking brick houses
Tearing down the walls
It’s complicated
But no one’s gonna see them fall

Take me along
Take me along
I don’t care where I
I don’t care where I
Belong, belong, belong

I don’t care where I
I don’t care where I
Belong, belong, belong

I don’t care where I
I don’t care where I
Belong, belong, belong

I don’t care where I
I don’t care where I
Belong, belong, belong

‘Cause wherever we go
Wherever we go
We belong, belong, belong
