about

"In the end, the music that EP Island make sounds (and feels) like freedom. It’s the product of very talented musicians trying to expand their musical palette with music that hasn’t been planned and has been recorded in a blitzkrieg style."

- Sloucher.org

Wanting a break from the usual band grind, LL Schultz (vocals, guitar, keyboards) and Melanie Covey (percussion) started EP Island as a side project that would exist only when they wanted it to, scheduled periodically as one-weekend events, with the goal of writing and recording as much as possible at LL’s studio over 3 days. This non-band "band" offered an intense creative process that produced immediate results. Possibilities to explore and vary the EP Island sound have grown with the inclusion of a special guest musician in each subsequent outing.

EP Island's third and latest EP, Sweet’ish, features veteran indie rocker Sarah Jane Truman (The Doers, Secret Mommy). Bringing Truman into the mix this time around influenced a sound reminiscent of The Cure, Joy Division and Versus. Sweet’ish documents the first time the 3 musicians have ever played together, was written in 24 hours, recorded in 24 hours, and further mixed by LL. Song ideas were spawned from old projector slides that provoked topics such as lighthouse operators, unhappy senior marriages and teenage egos.

EP Island's previous releases include the 2008 debut Good’ish, followed by Rad’ish in 2009, which features the talents of Lyn Heinemann (Portico, Drawn Ship). All EPs have been released online, mostly for free, with donation requests only to cover hard costs like beer, mastering, and food for the studio cat, Menue.

Track Name: Engine Cleaner
How do I do this?
Black water seems endless
Reach out to you my last hope
To rise above the swallowing waves of it all

Shine a light
Flailing I’m afraid on pain of failing
But if there’s nothing between us
I’ll pick myself up and I’ll guide you home

Shine your light across the sea
Trust me I’m trying I won’t let it take you away
Before this water gets too deep
Water’s undying I’ll find you and carry you home
Shine your light across the sea
Trust me I’m trying I won’t let it take you away
Before this water swallows me
Water’s undying I’ll find you and carry you home

Shine your light across the sea
Trust me I’m trying I won’t let it take you away
Before this water gets too deep
Water’s undying I’ll find you and carry you home

If you don’t find me, will we both be lost?
Track Name: No Royal Wedding
I make it up a lot, and then to throw up the pieces
I live in a movie with long nights
I look at your picture in the dark
Make believe that you are still in my heart and taste
The regret on my lips

I’m not your minion, I haven’t ever made a mistake
Since I signed away on that dotted line
But I’m too old and tired
To move on investigate
I lived through the lies
I only hope its not too late

I’ll wait til you die
To get what was mine
I’ll wait til you die
Perfectly timed

I’ll wait til you die
To get what was mine
I’ll wait til you die
Perfectly timed
Track Name: Teen Age
You wanna be noticed
But you feel unseen
When she treats you like a child
But you’re really seventeen

And you’re not the one
That gets to be the coolest
When you try to fit in
It only seems foolish

Just to be noticed
Just to be noticed
Just to be noticed
By you, again

You wanna be noticed
But you feel unseen
When she treats you like a child
But you’re really seventeen

Just to be noticed
Just to be noticed
Just to be noticed
By you, again

Just to be noticed
Just to be noticed
By you, again

Just to be noticed
By you, again
