Girls Get Drugs for Free

by Joe Turner & the Seven Levels

/

about

A truism, not an offer.

For "girls", read: "high-maintenance people of all genders". For "drugs", read: "pretty much anything you can get used to and rely on".

Title track from the upcoming second album.

lyrics

a quick start for a safe heart this will guide you to success now it's pennies on the dollar for it's later you'll be blessed you look for signs and clues you get the winter blues you think the script was set in stone you always feel alone the parents can't control them and the neighbors always see the boys pay for their dreaming and the girls get drugs for free a hot day still it's "no way!" distraction pulls her in he's lost in altercation and trying not to win sleepwalk the hours away wasting another day you wonder if you'll make your mark you never feel the spark the parents can't control them and the neighbors always see the boys pay for their dreaming and the girls get drugs for free they get marijuana they get ecstasy they get all the attention they get to make a scene they get the jet set lifestyle they get amphetamine yeah it take a lot of fuel to power that machine the parents can't control them and the neighbors always see the boys pay for their dreaming and the girls get drugs for free

about

Joe Turner & the Seven Levels Boston, Massachusetts

Running a wire-length between gauzy meditation and full-on psych-rock with huge harmonies, rock-solid drums, sharp guitars, and watery pianos. Joe's unerring melodic sensibilities plunk stoned cyclical mantras on the same skewer as twitchy psych-pop for a delicious psychedelic rock shishkebab.

"One of the coolest independent albums by a local artist this year... an aural odyssey" - Boston Phoenix
