supersonic-symbiotic Kitten Forever is an amazing band, and with each album they somehow sound even better. It's hard to pick a favorite song on this album as they are all so good, but I'll pick Air Dry because it's so fun to sing along with. Favorite track: Air Dry.

Wesley Meier I had the pleasure of seeing Kitten Forever perform the autumn before "7 Hearts" was released. Immediately I was taken by the distinctive originality of their sound. With "Semi-Permanent" the band is at a fever pitch. The lyrics are all intelligent, clever and delivered with a brilliant force and brattiness. Fun Fact, Chores, Sour Cherries, Big, Hell Hole, Pinky Swear...the WHOLE ALBUM are all standout tracks! Favorite track: Sour Cherries.

Chores 01:57
shake off your velvet get dressed in the dark you can stuff it with flowers bring the baby to the bar you can eat up my whole life but I’ll get caught in your throat and i will enter a raffle for winning your idols - ooh it’s the eternal intake you do the chores on weeknights cuz I've been met with silence compact and temperless while you’ve been moving around this whole damn mess cuz if you know how to starve it then you know how to kill and if you know how to boss it then you know how to really go - shake off your velvet get dressed in the dark you can stuff it with flowers bring the baby to the bar you can move through my body the loudest this story is sequined and tacky a medallion for boring me - ooh it’s the eternal intake you do the chores on weeknights cuz I've been met with silence been compact and temperless while you were moving around this whole damn mess cuz if you know how to starve it then you know how to kill and if you know how to boss it then you know how to really go go go go go go go go go it ain’t so bad when you’re gossiping the bad one! - is it a nasty trip or self-protection? slow to heal or just confusion? who'll play me in your wall projections? super cool or no perfection - shake out your violets undress for your art you can stuff it with velvet well when can you start? might be in the same house but they'll stamp your card just to exist in the backyard

The Hawk 02:09
you do it cuz you're used to it, don't you? just cuz you're hesitant doesn't mean you're used to it collecting all the charms for it doesn't mean it's gonna fit on you - your shirts untucked, your mouth is open in the partial spiral you're so totally grounded root holy truth from relic skin and that's deep dirt you're digging in i can't talk much but I can run like a mouse in the field with the hawk overhead - you do it cuz you're hesitant, don't you? you break it you're buying it but you're not gonna sell a frail present, are you? - put it, put it, put it, back! ooh, the hawk leave me in your daydream love me like a lightshow leave it like you're gonna put it, put it, back - underground or on a pedestal the personal is critical turn around and around like a mouse in the field with the hawk overhead - like the hawk a perfect dive when I'm on the shallow end that's deep dirt you're digging in, baby!

hello hello - they tasted sad hello hello - i cried in bed hello hello - “eat the pit!” hello hello - i stayed home sick - used to have so many loves haven't thought about em in so long ate them up + washed them out wasn't worth a single one - cut the cake + wake up late who am i to disintegrate? call your mom and call your dad dialtone sings inside my head - disconnect to reconnect disconnect to reconnect sour cherries never forget hello hello - can't take me anywhere can't take me anywhere - no one, no more - hello hello - used to have so many loves haven't thought about em in so long ate them up + washed them out wasn't worth a single one

Afterlife 2 01:43
low life you’re always putting on a show i hear you talking on the radio it hurts until it stops you crawl until you walk it is what it is what it is what it is - low life / afterlife disappearing / reappearing it’s a true connection crossover true connection crossover but you don’t even know your own fucking name - one of these things is not like the other sink or swim or don’t even bother get out of my house get out of my head get out of my house get out of my bed it is what it is what it is what it is - low life / afterlife disappearing / reappearing it’s a true connection crossover true connection crossover but you don’t know your own fucking name - and you don’t even know your own fucking game so put your best foot forward best foot forward if you're tired of loving with nobody to love - one of these things is not like the other true connection crossover

Air Dry 01:56
eat the bouquet drunk at the fair pull me from the charged cemetery ground cut me from your hair - pulling up the trap is like pressing through the cracks will we ever be the cave to each other's fang? it's not complicated - love to dissolve to film our friends cropping out the edge of this particular gift shop transcendence - walking down that path is like writing on the cast will we ever be the cave to each other's fang? it's not complicated - press the seed get flower face you put it on and you walk away walk away you wanna be there towards the shine on horizon but you don’t wanna think of it when you can be here you can be here you can be here you can be here - pulling up the trap is like pressing through the cracks will we ever be the cave to each other's fang? it's not complicated - walking in the trap is like pressing through the cracks will we ever be the cave to each other's fang? it's not complicated

Pinky Swear 02:23
we look tough we don’t give up we look for love we like it rough we bite down big time more than we knew what’s wild in me is what’s wild in you We’re born again kids with broken drums it’s a race it’s a chase for number one - i give you gold but you’re semi permanent two steps back you ask was it worth it rearrange it all stays the same with the petals pressed against the frame with the house on fire the house in flames - palm to palm thumb to thumb you pinky swear so don’t play dumb is it true that i dream of you and you dream about me but if i dream about you and how to prove how to prove how to prove how to prove how to prove that it all belongs to you - i give you gold but you’re semi permanent two steps back you ask was it worth it rearrange it all stays the same with the petals pressed against the frame with the house on fire the house in flames - you’re alive cross your heart and hope to die its alive its alive its alive its alive
