Nü Metal 01:30
Show me a door, a broken door A painted door, an iron door Cuz my own race is too well fed They're stuffing your face with Wonder Bread™ Cuz you don't know the new Jim Crow Broken windows in bloody clothes Show me a door, an open door

Chicken Milk 02:26
Call your parents on the phone and tell 'em that I say, "Hello!" Stop the car to get some gas and watch the man tossing' wieners in the trash Hey, chicken milk Draw something stupid on your hand if you've got five bucks for the touring band Go inside and watch them play, they're actually good and they've been driving all day Hey, chicken milk

What do I see when I turn out the light Newsreels project from the back of my mind Ceiling or backs of my eyelids the screen Replaying every upsetting scene How could this be the free world I've known The bubble has popped, the cover is blown The struggles of the past I thought were safe inside of books I can't deny now that's not how it looks Swaying in hammocks asleep in the day It's hard not to love the American way I dreamed I saw 300 million in a level field Balanced and fair I could swear it was real I won't let myself sleep a quiet room so solitary confinement to my own mind our founding sins resonate from behind protected little village served unawareness what a privilege conditioned to fear others unrecognized sisters and brothers I man begs for air with his face in the ground A kid in the part in 2 seconds shot down How many million people need to see with their own eyes When fleecing turns to slaughter they just cover it with lies The unarmed victims smeared and blamed for taking their own lives They're dehumanized I became sedated by the fantasy of an american dream The system masturbated to the thought of a perpetual motion machine run on the the subjugated with pennies on their eyes So let's keep our eyes open I need you all to see That what's been built's still broken Not everyone is free And I guess you wanna roll your eyes hearing another white boy sing Sing about the blues and Langston Hughes and Martin Luther King Well no I didn't live this No one deferred my dream But when silence equals violence What better time to scream And together we can take the streets open some minds and light a spark I'm following your lead I will always be awake in the dark

about

Born in the kitchen of some stranger's house and concieved of over many bowls of pasta and lentils, Chips for Dinner is the gurgling brain child of New York's weirdest. Palberta and No One and the Somebodies feel right at home together, joyously dishing out sonic absurdities and displaying a clear mutual influence on each other's work. Four brothers from Westchester County and three thick-as-thieves friends living in the Hudson Valley have concocted a real musical treat for all lovers of the playful and strange.

A beacon of inspiration for countless musicians in the Tri-State area, NOATS have spent the past 15+ years gigging relentlessly, releasing mind blowing records with a righteous message, and having a blast while doing it. Their subject matter ranges from brazenly goofy non sequitors to thoughtful political analysis, and they approach both with just as much energy. The NOATS side of "Chips" is their first new music in 3 years, and these four tracks feel appropriately triumphant. Equally unhinged and anthemic, they deliver healthy doses of guitar- induced frenzy and and bizarrely gorgeous melodies, offering an accurate spectrum of the NOATS sound. The unabashed, visceral fun at the core of this band has left an indelible mark on the New York underground, encouraging many basement dwellers to follow in their footsteps.

Palberta are certainly amongst those followers, but continue to pave their own lane with explosive originality. Like a haunting school yard chant or an inside joke you're dying to be in on, their side of the split offers a familiar lunacy that is entirely their own. The girls taunt, tease and tear through these six tracks, masterfully recorded by OSR tapes founder Zach Phillips. As a full package, Chips for dinner sounds like a celebration of all the quirks that exist within a tight knit friendship, a testament to post-rehearsal snack sessions, and a record that is as fun to listen to as it surely was to make.
