gorloth This is my favorite album that has come out this year. It is weird, and singular, and amazing. I love it. The only thing I can compare it to is when I first heard Neutral Milk Hotel, In An Aeroplane Over the Sea. Just the best. Favorite track: You Don't Know What I've Been Through Bro.

Cory Capron Philip Goth is like The New Pornographers and Say Hi to Your Mom had a kid who grew up to be the survivor of all those itch.io indie horror games where you work at a gas station, bar, or grocery store through the graveyard shift and everything gets progressively stranger and more disturbing. This is music for nightcrawlers, the cigarette dinged neon night world exhausted insomniacs living alone at the end of their fading twenties, too tired to party and too weird to die quiet. Favorite track: Pole Dancing 4 Funerals.

YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT I’VE BEEN THROUGH BRO There were lead singers everywhere oh God, they got such gorgeous white cocks Lighten up muchacho gotta keep the customers happy while your head’s in the stocks but I pick melons now and all the girls in the back of the pick up go rapido, rapido, rapido, rapido Give me rap songs that make me puke blood Give me a new love who looks like the old love Give me an overized novelty T-Shirt that says You don’t know what I’ve been through, Bro Evelyn in the psych ward used to go “I lost my only child and that’s the worst pain you could ever feel and that’s all I’m gonna say about that” (Don’t take her out of my life) My roommate tried to slit his wrist with a plastic fork he sharpened and bent A millionaire blew hard in my face and told me he had to pay my rent There was a young girl in a wheelchair I thought the man that visits was her dad It was her pimp she was married to who threw her out a window They took her braids out before she went to prison but I could still hear her singing “Why are you so sad?” she said “Why are you so sad?” Give me rap songs that make me puke blood Give me a new love who looks like the old love Give me an oversized novelty T-shirt that says You don’t know what I’ve been through, Bro Evelyn in the psych ward used to go “I lost my only child and that’s the worse pain you could ever feel and that’s all I’m gonna say about that”

POLE DANCING 4 FUNERALS It was a great time for sci fi It was a great time for power tools Me and the kids hunt wild dogs through the ashes of public schools This used to be a Wal Mart I used to pick the condoms off the rack It was a great time for mattresses in basements that smell like crack in basements that smell like crack It was a great time in the TV room in the Albany Med Psych Ward me and the boys all laugh when the cop finds his wife’s head wrapped in cardboard This used to be a band in a room now I just sing out of tune If you squint hard enough the fluorescent lights look just that damn full moon look just that damn full moon Turn this one up at the strip club after my funeral When you’re drunk wet parking lots look impossibly beautiful High falls, New Paltz, Livingston, Kingston, Cohoes,Cairo, Coxsackie, Poughkeepsie, Stripper Names, Fallen Rain, it all sounds the same It’s the same sad music to me It was a great time for Klonopin Ketamine, Adderall, Vicodin Hope my kid never tell’s her friends Dad’s gone he tried to kill himself again This used to be my childhood home now it’s a Dunkin’ Donuts used to sleep right there with a purple raccoon next to the bowl of cigarette butts next to the bowl of cigarette butts Turn this one up at the strip club after my funeral When you’re drunk wet parking lots look impossibly beautiful Pall Mall, menthoyl, Pueblo, Marlboro, Spirits, Maverick, Kools, Camel Light, Newport, Lucky Strike, they all sound like mhmmhm sha nah nah I was trying to get some sleep in this ER hallway when two twins walked in, hollering One said “I’m alright” The other said “April fools!” and I said “This must be my life. Shit, this must be my life.” Maybe it’s your life too High falls, New Paltz, Livingston, Kingston, Cohoes, Cairo, Coxsackie, Poughkeepsie, Stripper Names, Fallen Rain, it all sounds the same It’s the same sad music to me

I was a Teenage Anna Nicole Smith making out with Death in a parked car Now I’m just the old guy blowing the leaves on your tennis court with nasty scars Hey, let’s do acid on election day you can be the Queen of Guantanamo Bay and I’ll be the shape shifting lizard Congressman Spy The truth is stranger than the high Ralph jumped that fence into that old past tense He is, now he just was but I miss him here now and I don’t wanna say anymore because it’ll just fuck up my buzz Hey, I’ll be Ralph, you can be me We’ll blow every red light doing ninety Driving an old Porsche, listening to Lennon I hope there’s no LA in heaven I’d say one LA is bad enough When the scars on my face heal I’mma finally pick up my kid from the McDonalds’ where the kids make-out and vape Gonna tell her that you can’t really know anyone ever (not even yourself) It’s kind of terrifying It’s kind of great Hey, I know your dad would be proud of you when I feel this lost I feel him too Everything is beginning even the endings are beginning again now I’ll always be a Teenage Anna Nicole Smith watching the people drift in and out

about

Philip Goth was founded by Josh Rawson. Josh joined a band called the Felice Brothers as a teenager, where he played bass and wrote songs. After eleven years he quit, envisioning a strange and haunting world of music of his own that he would later call Philip Goth. Over the next three years he wrote and recorded Philip Goth’s debut album in a spare bedroom in Philmont, New York, by himself, while working various jobs. What drove him during these years were the surprising, deeply troubling and often hilarious things he would sing into his computer every night. He is currently an average employee of a landscaping crew.
