Now that my glory days are over
And I spent all my blessings as they came
It’s time to put me out to pasture, and pray for the rain
I guess this must weigh on you, heavy
But know it comes with zero shame
Well I headed out to meet my maker, but he stood me up again
Seems I’m stuck capturing that same feeling
But I received good news today
Still I’m inclined towards songs of sadness, and days washed down the drain
Hey, what’s with all the rage?
You know you wouldn’t catch me dead there anyway, but still I’ll say that I can wish you all the best
And there, alone at the end, catch that sinking feeling.
It’s one for you and it’s one for me.
It’s misery and here’s all the best with it.
What’s real or a part of the deal?
You know you’d never be allowed to choose anyway, but still you say ‘Hey what’s that pissing,
Well it’s misery.
It’s not what we deserve and not what we need.
And you wanna change it? Well then you can lead.
Yeah that’s misery.
And it’s one for you and then it’s one for me, and I see that death squad coming hastily.
You know that pale rider faithfully.
‘Hey what’s that pissing trickling down is it?
Good Morning are a band from Melbourne, Australia. Formed as a recording project in 2014 by Stefan Blair and Liam Parsons, the band’s presence in their lives has expanded slowly but surely over the better part of a decade. Due in part to a few strokes of luck, and a mysteriously unflinching desire to write and record music, Good Morning have been able
to expand their scope from the lounge rooms and pubs they began recording and performing in to playing shows to people all across the globe.
In 2020 as tours began rapidly falling by the wayside, Good Morning’s plans to transition into a more full-time touring schedule quickly came to an end. Trying to re-contextualise their ‘jobs’ as musicians, Good Morning set their focus on piecing together a studio in the Melbourne suburb of Preston, and have since somewhat maintained a regular Monday -
Friday recording schedule. Their latest release, the self-produced ‘Out To Pasture / Misery’ is a result of said schedule. With endless amounts of studio time Good Morning have been able to indulge more than ever in crafting layered recordings, a welcome change for the band, who for the most part have made their records within the space of a few days.
‘Out To Pasture / Misery’ marks a few firsts for the band, namely strings (performed by Melbourne based violinist Chloe Sanger) and banjo. Both songs also feature Glenn Blair on horns. Together Good Morning have released six records of varying quality and length - Shawcross (2014), Glory (2016), Prize // Reward (2018), The Option (2019), Basketball
Breakups (2019), and most recently Barnyard (2021). They are currently working on their seventh record.

Cheeses crust, this is amazing bedroom DIY art. Beautiful & lush sounds flow smoothly down like a delicious shake. The nice sour-esque, but sweet fuzz adds such a nice balance to the latter.
Nice groovy moments abound, as well. It feels really personal, like a portion of her diary is exposed for us to devour deliciously.
Really excellent pop, but that does no justice for this amazing record.
"you don't want to see me like this..."
Thank you Jay Som so much for your ☠️work☠️ CoughCool
