Euan Murphy Great self-deprecating emo/pop-punk. The lyrics are witty and angsty. Good shit. Favorite track: High.

    On their debut 7", Tough Stuff refines the lo-fi, emo-tinged pop punk of last year's Beware EP, and the results are awesome. The five songs on "College" have all the catchy songwriting and reckless energy of the early demos, but the execution really shows how this three-piece is growing into their sound. Emo influences are in full force on this EP, and the lyrics veer equally into goofy debauchery and introspective self-loathing (hint: the EP title is a clue). Poppy riffs and shout/singalong choruses abound!

    Alex Estrada did a radical job recording and mixing these songs at Earth Capital in LA. This is a run of 500: 100 on green/white marble vinyl and 400 on black.

Track Name: Ceremony/College
I don't want to hear all the stupid shit you're saying
And I'm tired of the games that you siempre keep on playing,
like, oh my god, aren't we all just looking for someone to love?
And I'm tired of the way you're telling me you're lonely
when you're with me.
Hey dude.
I'm so happy you came back to school.
And it's been a long summer. kind of like an endless bummer.
And it feels so good to be back. And it feels so good, you know that.
So let's talk all night with lights on.
We don't have to worry about waking up too early
because we did not register for morning fucking classes
kicking all our asses.
So let's raise our beers to ceiling fans.
and hope we don't end up on bathroom floors
like last party of freshman semester.
Track Name: High
I don't even care if you're bored at home tonight
Because I can come over and
I can make everything seem fine.
Hey, Ben, have you met my new friend Mary?
She's so cool. She can make you feel so cool.
Are you feeling good, man? Cause I feel so good, man.
Are you feeling dead, man?
I don't even care what you're doing later on
because me and you, we can totally smoke that bong.
Oh my god, is that guy following us?
Somehow I feel so cool.
Track Name: Smile
I've been looking at myself naked in the mirror
because my breast and nipples kind of make a half-assed smile,
something that I haven't seen in a while.
I've been a piece of shit for the past six goddamn years.
And my hair, it keeps getting wetter.
Fuck my head, I'm not getting any better.
I can't see anything at all.
I can't do anything at all.
Are we doing anything right now?
Are we all even really fucking here?
Track Name: New Glasses
Let's sit on your bed and smoke some weed.
Are you getting tired and sick of me?
Because I can go home if you want me to.
And I'm sorry for the way I am,
apologetic and apathetic, you know?
You'll get used to it, eventually.
She said, "Don't talk. You won't understand.
You don't have to anyways."
