1. WHAT WOULD THE ODD DO? Asking just to inquire Is a liar ever admired? Is a tiger ever required? WHAT WOULD THE ODD DO? Is a spider ever inspired? Will the treetops ever be cyber? Are they linked by multiple wires? WHAT WOULD THE ODD DO? Talk when everything’s quiet? Would you attempt to do it or try it? Hearing one voice inside a choir WHAT WOULD THE ODD DO? Sing notes with no amplifier? Climb ropes out into the fire? Is the thickness taking you higher? WHAT WOULD THE ODD DO? WHEN THEORIES ARE SEE THROUGH? If I think fast will I be wiser? Or does the test lie inside a timer? When you grow old, are you a dier? WHAT WOULD THE ODD DO? WHEN THEORIES ARE SEE THROUGH? When you fall down, are you a flyer? Is the edge the end for the diver? Or the start to something inside her? WHAT WOULD THE ODD DO? Will a guard dog ever retire? Or is the bark forever for hire? A job or maybe desire? WHAT WOULD THE ODD DO? WHAT WOULD THE ODD DO? WHAT WOULD THE ODD DO? WHAT WOULD THE ODD DO? WHAT WOULD THE ODD DO?

Plants 05:17
In the garden, flowers speak to me They turn slightly toward the sun they see Red and blue you are the shadow Why is Lara talking to a plant? In the forest, trees hear more than leaves. They talk to me with electric speech In a language, no one translates. Pretending it's not odd to whisper Acting normal, like no one hears her Wild, green ivy. Do you try to speak? When I am walking Oh, do you know it's me? People say it's easy to talk to Other humans creeping next to you But I never seem to get through Why is Lara talking to a plant? Underground a seed turns to a sprout Fungus talking out of roots they shout In a language, no one translates Pretending it's not odd to whisper Acting normal like no one hears her Wild, green ivy. Do you try to speak? When I am walking Oh, do you know it's me?

Tracing sand, out in your land Maze of you, Is it a clue? God of resolution Ask again, What do I do? Who am I? And is it true? I want an explanation Where am I, and what is next? Modern life, under a hex? Solution to the question Staring blank, without a guess Just like me, it is a mess Answer isn’t crystal Future likes to play in the bay the seaside Looking for a new life Finger in a loop with a hand on a hip He was following your pinstripes Easy looks, over a book Its a hook, that no one took Fishing in the ether Present said, who to the now Is it true, without a sound? Never seeming eager Future doesn’t know What’s at the ending Future doesn’t know What’s coming next Mazes with no start Leading to nothing Fading to a pale Mirror of me So he asked, do I exist? Its a twist, I coexist With everyone around me Guess it means, that I should be As a dream, and so I scream Only and forever Tactical, yet linear Circular, you never were Trapped inside a coil Is it real, or is it fake? Is it fate, or will it break? The fabric of the realness Future likes to play in the grey by the nightlight Looking for a new strife Elbowing the next, so in love with a hex Even when I’m on the bright side In a land where life is bland You cant stand, to understand Repetition growing Does it seem, that it was real Broken there, right at the seal No one ever knowing Future doesn’t know What’s at the ending Future doesn’t know What’s coming next Mazes with no start Leading to nothing Fading to a pale Mirror of me

Moth Like Me 03:01
I like the light for me I like the light in front of me Blindly steering in the dust Tell me is it fed by the lust Navigation built right in Knowing where to go begin Straight ahead out in the night Nothing matters but the light Instinct, was the ground found? Buzzing and moving around? Look ahead - what have you found? Messing with that deep color Say it to electric thunder Flashy, like a talking head Is the ending ever dead? Look ahead - what do you dread? Deep emotion, are you sure? Could the light become a cure? Moon is melting, is it true? Make a mirror, of the view? Look ahead - what do you do? Outside I saw it, looked just like me, but with purpose Clone with intention, it looked just like me, flapping, flying into a dream I like the light for me I like the light in front of me Caught up in a brief pause Spiritual and deep cause Gluttony and excess Running from the real stress Worth it in the long run Listening to no one Gaze in one direction home Searching for connection zone Look ahead - what have you done? Solitary, reckless Feverish and selfish Wanting what you want now Never thinking what, how Look ahead - what have you found? Deep emotion, are you sure? Could the light become a cure? Moon is growing, is it true? Watch out right in front of you! Look ahead - What do you do? Outside I saw it, looked just like me, but with purpose Clone with intention, it looked just like me, flapping, flying into a dream Circling a light with no reason to be, just true attraction Moth with direction, deadly it may be, drinking from that steady beam

Futuristic, a belief in Artificial people taking over real skin Architecture, as a structure Built to cover up the feeling when I walk in Staring, but you’re seeing nothing In a land where money’s nightmare Is no one The perspective of religion End of life always written in the background The despair, of millionaires Lead you out on the roads to nowhere Floating like a feather out there In a land where money’s nightmare Hears no one Estimation, make a guess fine Astrology is making better headlines Another planet? Will you vanish? To be honest, you couldn’t even breathe there My home spinning sickly in the stars You’re talking, you're speaking but nothing really comes of it You hate it, and say it, but never really do a thing The planet, it crumbles and melting with no audience The land where, the nightmare of money isn’t obvious It’s a cycle? is it viral? So deep in the spirit of a shutdown Is it natural? Supernatural? You sleep in the water of ice cap Staring but you’re saying nothing In a land where money’s nightmare Can’t say it Take a step back, on a new track Coming close, to the feeling of a new view Shuffle further, is it clearer? The only place, you’ll ever really go to My home spinning sickly in the stars Staring, but you’re saying none Talking, but then, nothing’s done Floating like a feather flies Land where money’s nightmare lives Shocking, but you’re saying none Talking, but still, nothing’s done Floating like a feather flies In silence money’s nightmare dies

about

Guerilla Toss returns to NNA Tapes with a brand new EP, 'What Would The Odd Do?', an exploration into new territories and an expansion on their recipe for twisted, addictive rock & roll mania: fried funk, damaged dance, and cosmic cacophony. Fans of 70’s prog and rock greats like King Crimson and Todd Rundgren as well as modern torchbearers like Sheer Mag and Deerhoof will be joyfully united by GT's uniquely familiar world of wonder and excitement.

For Kassie Carlson -- singer, songwriter, and bandleader of Guerilla Toss -- What Would The Odd Do? is unarguably the group's most personal release in their impressive history as a music-making collective. After open-heart surgery in 2017 to remove a dangerous blood clot caused by a severe opiate addiction, Carlson has found a new joy in life. She has since cleaned up for good, moved to Upstate New York with her partner and Guerilla Toss drummer, Peter Negroponte, and has never felt more inspired.

Kassie Carlson is a true poet of punk, the voice of an unheard generation, the leader of The Odd. Few people have been through what she has, and making it out alive is just the beginning. With her band of musical misfits, Guerilla Toss is an unstoppable force of nature. Like all great and challenging art, their message is abstract, yet decipherable. And once the listener cracks the code, they’ll be immersed in a uniquely familiar world of wonder and excitement. What will unite us more than to celebrate the absurd and question what we’ve been told is obvious? Let GT be just one of the many songs among the soundtrack of existential infinity and divine recovery.

A portion of the proceeds from the album will go to the Harlem Harm Reduction Clinic, in an attempt to further our reach in the opiate crisis battle.
