warm-thoughts

I’ll tell you one thing. They won’t be the sort of person you ever imagined falling in love with. They’ll probably like different kinds of music and only watch the films you like so that the can understand half of the references you make to them. They probably won’t understand your emotions all the time and they probably won’t always be able to be there for you, even if they want to be. They probably won’t be perfect, and it probably won’t be love at first sight. And that’s okay. Imperfections and heartache and sweat and tears and all, they’ll be worth it.

I finally got that disposable developed and every picture came out blurry, except the one of you leaning on the goal post down the road, that one with your head thrown back laughing at the sky. And yes it made me ache, yes it made lonely, yes it made me wonder where you are. Wherever it is, I hope you’re smiling.

new WARM THOUGHTS song is up!

Pre-order the 7" here: ASIAN MAN RECORDS - Warm Thoughts “Intangible” 7"

WARM THOUGHTS is the continuation of Elliot Babin’s bedroom recording project, which he started in 2010 previously under the name Dad Punchers. His solo project has evolved in to a revolving cast of Babin and his friends playing loud, sweaty, and occasionally sad, rock and roll music. You might know him as the drummer of Touche Amore, but if you haven’t heard his solo work yet, then you’re in for a pleasant surprise. Fans of The Weakerthans, Joyce Manor, and The Beach Boys will love WARM THOUGHTS.

We’re happy to be re-releasing his “Mar Vista” LP this fall with 3 previously unreleased tracks. You can hear one of them here: https://soundcloud.com/asianmanrecords/warm-thoughts-everything-should-grow

Warm Thoughts is already working on new songs which we’ll also be releasing on a 7" in the hopefully not too distant future.

my boy luke changed a line in the second verse to “did you see Elliot’s hair?”

miss this whole dang group

I do not love you for your genitalia or your sexuality; nor do I love you for your gender. I love you for the way your laughter fills a room. For the way your smile warms my heart. I love you because your eyes see through the darkest parts of me and find the light. I love the way your singing soothes my soul. How your hand reminds me that you’re still here. I love you not for the body you have, but the way the kindred spirit that fills it sets me free. I love you. And nothing can changed that.
