about

Mwahaha Oakland, California

What's in a name? Oakland, CA's Mwahaha answers that question with a smirk, but the sounds that emanate from their forthcoming debut album are no joke. Psychedelic ebb & flows, electronic undercurrents, and elated pop flourishes bring into focus an attention to detail that's staggering. Their debut full length album, set for release March 26th, 2013 on Plugged Research. ... more

Track Name: Rainbow Diamond
I looked but there's no more
and when I saw your face was made of doors
man these things hit you like no other
and the pieces were all
gigantically small
give them to all

see the silver lining
ripped by rainbow diamond
everybody’s cryin
and each door of your face was made of windows
and through every one
I could see down each hall
the floors climb the walls

your sorrow and fortune
they're in bed together
say goodbye to summer

I don’t want to talk about it
not while the sunshine is shining
I can see the silver lining
it’s breaking through
like rainbow diamond

some some some some
day day day day
it won’t won’t won’t won’t
hurt so bad
but
to to to to-
day day day
I take myself way too seriously
seriously

damn them with faint praise
damn them with the sun
all our sorrow and all our fortune
damn them with faint praise
they’re in the next room they’re in bed together
damn them with faint praise
damn them with the sun
all our sorrow
they’re in the next room they’re in bed together

some some some some
day day day day
it won’t won’t won’t won’t
hurt so bad
but
to to to to-
day day day
I take myself way too seriously
seriously
Track Name: Love (w/ Merrrill Garbus of Tune-Yards)
Love love love
love love love

it is something we’re always
doing but we never figure it out

it’s not too late to
set fire to this whole mess
you’ve got the right kind of eyes love
they broadcast your sadness
so then where are we off to now love
and why are we going so fast

can you remember to remind me of what I’m supposed to forget so I can see

and I am the branch you see
and you are the fragile leaves
this life it is
the cold cold wind
that comes and takes you away from me
