** RECORD STORE DAY 2107 ** 4/22/2017 **

Each song on this album was inspired by a specific internet meme involving an animal somewhere doing something human-like or wearing clothes not usually associated with the animal. Many ideas were given to me by our good friend Jenny down in Louisiana, USA.

If you buy the full album you also get the EXTENDED VERSION of "Cats On Leash"! Just saying.

onlyone -- Joe Kowalski -- is hard to classify as a solo artist. As a sort of throwback to 70s era Brian Eno, onlyone traverses electronic/ proggy pop and ambient music and anything in between, playing all instruments and producing it all.

Beginning in June 2014, onlyone is releasing three new albums -- electro-pop "Breakable," post-rock piece "The Great Capsule," and ambient album "In Flight."

Track Name: Cats On Leash (Radio Edit)
lyrics by joe kowalski

and he’s strutting his stuff
they can’t get enough
and when he struts his stuff
he finds he needs some loving
he’s needing something
he’s needing something
something good
(something good)
can you hear it?
can you hear it?
can you hear it?
he hears the call

don’t believe it
cats on leash
got to see it
cats on leash

the lady cats in heat
they’re calling out to me
they interrupt my meals
i can make a deal with them
they need something
and i need something
(something good)
can you feel it?
can you feel it?
i feel it all

don’t believe it
cats on leash
got to see it
cats on leash

the lady cats in heels
are gathered ‘round in heat
the lady cats in heels
are gathered ‘round in heat
we need what we need
when we need what we need it’s decreed
can you feel what i’m feeling?

don’t believe it
cats on leash
got to see it
cats on leash

Track Name: Macaque (Everybody Loves)
lyrics by joe kowalski

who is that garden gnome
why is he jumping ‘round
all in the the snowy drifts
and falling down?
and falling down?

he’s wrapped up tight
and bouncing all around
all snowy white
smiles all around the town
everybody loves macaque

he’s peeking from underneath the hood
and falling back on his ass
he’s a very happy guy
keeps falling down
keeps falling down

he’s wrapped up tight
and bouncing all around
all snowy white
smiles all around the town
everybody loves macaque
don’t you just love macaque?
Track Name: Bow-Tie Duck
lyrics by joe kowalski

hey, i think i see
yeah, he seems kinda real
there behind the wheel
now he’s looking at me
it’s a bow-tie duck
a bow-tie duck
a bow-tie duck
what the—

yeah, you see him too?
hey, he’s looking at you
i don’t think he knows what to do
behind the wheel

it’s a bow-tie duck
a bow-tie duck
a bow-tie duck
what the—

i hope he can’t drive
i hope he can’t drive
(I’M WATCHING YOU!)
i hope he can’t drive
(HEY! YOU!)
i hope he can’t drive
(I’M WATCHING YOU!)

i’m a bow-tie duck
a bow-tie duck
a bow-tie duck

hey, i think i see
yeah, he seems kinda real
there behind the wheel
now he’s looking at me
(I’M WATCHING YOU!)
it’s a a bow-tie duck
a bow-tie duck
it’s a bow-tie duck
(I’M WATCHING YOU!)

Track Name: Bovine Photobomb
lyrics by joe kowalski

this misfit horse was almost making off
but sneaking through he soon was oddly caught
i approach him with a zen-like calm
the perfect slide
undermined
by a bovine photobomb

i never saw the happy girlie come
she came so fast left a mark and gone
so moved was i that i wrote this song
the perfect smile
stars aligned
in a bovine photobomb

she must’ve known what she was doing
she had perfect timing with her movements

i wasn’t sure i had to ask the somm
was it right to have some cote du rhone?
but when it all was over, said, and done
the love arrived
obscure subsides
with a bovine photobomb
