about

'Disaster Matinee' is the debut full-length from Seoul's 4-piece Baekma. Mixing post-rock and punk elements, grimy riffs and rich vocals, Baekma manages to slide between genres, ooze style, and generally do whatever they feel like on this wild album. 'Disaster Matinee's' polarity drives each track. Beautiful and rough, it pulls you along for the party and also for the eerie aftermath of the early morning. Baekma are here for fun, and 'Disaster Matinee' brings it to you raw—you get the dance party and the matted hair and regret all at once.

Cause the devil he may need my advocacy

Verse
If you can ditch your strife
Then you could be my wife
But you must give up your whole life
To please this occidental king

She’s swollen up with spite
She’s getting drunk tonight
Filling up for a fight
And he’s expecting her to

But the devil he don’t need your advocacy
And I can’t be what I can’t see

Alright darling, it’s been a while

Instr Chorus

Verse
Santa Maria, down at the Kiss.
In with a bang, out with a fizz.
How many kids does it take

What a perfect shot! I can show it to all my friends.

With your picture in my bleeding hands?

Track Name: Mr Good
#6 MR GOOD

You’re not so good

Verse
At first, you were too meek
Could never stand so weak
The name that first cursed you
Ironic that it means

Chorus
You’re not so good
Through another fellow’s eyes
You’re not so nice
When you take off your disguise
I’m sorry that your name is all the good that remains

Verse
Though you’re a nasty guy
The cash falls from the sky
In this mediocre bubble
Where standards aren’t too high

It’s hard to shine a shit
Without a suit jacket
You’re reaching out for coattails
You worthless charlatan

Chorus
You’re not so good
Through another fellow’s eyes
You’re not so nice
When you take off your disguise
I’m sorry that your name is all the good that remains
Track Name: Before This Place
#7 BEFORE THIS PLACE

Verse
I wish I woulda met you in another reality
I wish you coulda known me before this place emptied me
I wish I woulda met you in another society
I wish you coulda seen me before this place

Chorus
These nights it only matters what I look like
And what’s hiding between these 2 thighs
No one really cares what’s on the inside

I try to look beyond the obvious lies
Expecting to meet a surprise
But hope is the cornerstone of misery

Verse
I wish I woulda met you in another reality
I wish you coulda known me before this place ruined me
I wish I woulda met you in another country
I wish you coulda known me before this place

Chorus
These nights it only matters what I look like
And what’s hiding between these 2 thighs
No one really cares what’s on the inside

And I kinda feel sorry for you
But not as bad as I feel sorry for me
Cause hope is the cornerstone of misery

bridge
I wish I….

Chorus
Of course, a front row seat to your parade of whores
if you don’t want me to beat this dead horse
then why’d you shoot the thing right in front of me?

And I kinda feel sorry for you
But not as bad as I feel sorry for me
Cause hope is the cornerstone of misery
Track Name: Rabbits
#8 RABBITS

Verse
Take me, take me into your house.
I’ll be polite. I won’t make a single sound,
but I’ll watch. I’ll watch. I’ll watch. I’ll watch.

Tell your sister. Tell her internet friends.
DSLR desperate to make some impression.
You say. You say. You say. You say
you turn from me. You stroll from me.

Chorus
So I stop. Just like a rabbit in the headlights, I give up.

Verse
Oh, what pretty, such heady drinks you make.
I would love to but I’m afraid I can’t partake.
So I watch. I watch. I watch. I watch
you turn from me. You stroll from me.

Chorus
So I stop. Just like a rabbit in the headlights, I give up.
So I stop. Just like a rabbit in the headlights, I give up.
I give up.
I give up.
I give...
