We’re starting out Not in the best way But in the only way we can We’re starting out We’re looking up, eye to eye And hand in hand Our friends all say we’re crazy And we haven’t got a plan We’ve hurt some people along the way And that I can’t deny It made me feel so weird inside It made me want to cry Our friends all said you’re crazy And you haven’t got a plan We’re starting out, in this together Just doing anything we can All the love That we feel Don’t you know we’re gonna make it Don’t you know we’re gonna make it Just put your hand in mine We’ll make it in the end Just put your hand in mine And you can be my friend Don’t you know we’re gonna make it Don’t you know we’re gonna make it Don’t you know we’re gonna make it

CINQUE PORTS 04:15
No more horror podcasts at all The future’s looking bright, too close to call Without you I’m not half of what I know I’m meant to be So no more horror podcasts for me As crazy as it seems you’re all I need All I want around me I believe Without you I’m not half of what I know I’m meant to be So no more true crime podcasts for me When all the love in the world Manifests itself in one girl When all the love in the world Manifests itself in one girl When all the love in the world Manifests itself in one girl Then all the love in the world Is real --- When all the love in the world Manifests itself in one girl When all the love in the world Manifests itself in one girl When all the love in the world Manifests itself in one girl When all the love in the world Manifests itself in one girl When all the love in the world Manifests itself in one girl Then all the love in the world Is real

Remember me? I am the land I might be desolate But boy I’m feeling grand Can you dig within your heart And see the beauty that I keep? Can you send that beauty back To me upon a fleet? Of boats to Dungeness They’re stranded on the beach They’re touching nose to nose The sand between their feet They look so rusting, there I must confess I feel a part of them A part of Dungeness Breathing in A rusted lung beneath the sun Under our feet The feeling we were almost one Can we gaze out to the sea and sip on what it reaps? Can you send that sea a message from us upon a fleet? Of boats to Dungeness They’re stranded on the beach They’re touching nose to nose The sand between their feet They look so rusting, there I must confess I feel a part of them A part of Dungeness I love our hearts I love our minds We’ve got so much of it We’ll leave some there to find

ICY CAPS 01:37
You saw a zine about typography I started looking at the way you see That’s love But not as we know it, Love But not as we know it We took a car all around the land And placed our feet beneath the coastal sand That’s love But not as we know it, Oh love But not as we know it Don’t need no guidance or a book of maps We got our zine about icy caps That’s love But not as we know it, Oh love But not as we know it

BECKON CALL 06:44
Driving through the night With you sitting by side Talking by the moonlight Everything feels just right Waking from a new dream Realise I’m alive I know I’ll always need you I know we’ll be alright Driving through the night With you sitting by side Talking by the moonlight Everything feels just right Waking from a new dream Realise I’m alive I know I’ll always need you I know we’ll be alright This dream It means nothing at all When you wake I will call When I wake you will call This dream It means nothing at all When you wake I will call When I wake you will call Call me, call me Hear the beckon call In your eyes The fire of it all Can you hear me? Call you, call you Are you satisfied? I wonder Will we reach the other side? Will we reach the other side? When all the love in the world Manifests itself in one girl When all the love in the world Manifests itself in one girl When all the love in the world Manifests itself in one girl When all the love In the world Manifests itself When all the love In the world Manifests itself When all the love In the world Manifests itself When all the love in the world Manifests itself in one girl Then all the love in the world Is real

about

Jack Goldstein makes Experimental Lo-Fi Power-Pop.

‘Love, The Answer To The Problem Of Human Existence’, was released on May 12th by Beanie Tapes. Described as 'an album to lose yourself to, to immerse yourself in the experience, and understand what pop music is capable of', this is Goldstein's fifth solo album since his last release with his psych-pop band Fixers.

Connecting the dots between Brian Wilson and Ween, Goldstein has been extensively touring his latest album up and down the country with Louder Than War describing his energetic live show as a 'Lynchian sense of the bizarre channeling the spirits of James Dean, Andy Kaufman and Uncle Peter from The Smell of Reeves & Mortimer. Goldstein is one of contemporary music’s great magicians and this is a spell you’ll be more than happy to fall under.'

“Genius” – BBC Introducing

“Not since Pet Sounds or Sgt. Pepper has an album sounded so experimental and yet at the same time accessible” – Recclective

“Oxford’s answer to Age of Adz-era Sufjan Stevens” – Oxfordshire Music Scene

"A Lynchian sense of the bizarre channeling the spirits of James Dean, Andy Kaufman and Uncle Peter from The Smell of Reeves & Mortimer. Goldstein is one of contemporary music’s great magicians and this is a spell you’ll be more than happy to fall under.' - Louder Than War

“Chock full of sparkling riffs and ideas” – Nightshift

⬇️🆗 A SHORT PROMOTIONAL MESSAGE FROM BEANIE TAPES

LOVE, THE ANSWER TO THE PROBLEM OF HUMAN EXISTENCE is Jack Goldstein’s fifth solo studio album and the first recorded in his new seaside home of Margate. It’s an inspired collage of found sounds energised by live guitar, bass, synths and his trademark shaker, topped with layered Beach Boys vocals and lyrics that express the true unadulterated joy of feeling a deep and meaningful connection to EVERYTHING.

We’re THRILLED to be releasing this album. Jack’s music is true, uncompromising experimental pop that is right at home in the lo-fi tape world and his live show, which he completely reinvents for every album, is always confrontational, weird and mind-bendingly fun. We have always loved Jack’s music and we agreed to release the album long before we had any idea what it would sound like. Lucky for us, Jack exceeded our most outlandish expectations and delivered a recording that is already one of our all-time favourites.

Take a chance on this album. You won’t regret it.

✨❤️✨
