about

This EP is our third release since the project was founded in 2016, and the first release to have ALL ORIGINAL MUSIC.

The songs in this EP are Swing and Blues based, and they've been tested against strict dance floor standards and found highly danceable!

All vocal songs were written and composed by Miss Mikey May, and the EP was arranged by all musicians and recorded live in the studio.

A word of thanks from Mikey:

This release was a chance for me to experiment with a different kind of production from what I've done until now. Bringing the raw demos to the studio and letting the musicians loose on the arrangements, singing live with the band using my favorite SM58 microphone, was a new experience for me and showed me just how far I've come as a musician.

I want to thank the Organ Grinders for trusting me as a writer, vocalist, and band leader, and for giving their all on stage and in the studio. Working with such powerhouses is a never-ending inspiration to me and I couldn't have done it without the collaborative and creative spirit that we all share.

Big thanks goes out to my dad Yoram Ariel, for mastering this record and all the previous records that we released. To my sister Shlomit Ariel, who's been invaluable in helping me design the cover and the new branding for the band. To my friends Ben Gladnikoff, Ravit Zelig, Ron Dobrovinsky, and Hamed Jenabi, for giving feedback on the songs and replenishing my confidence in moments of uncertainty.

And as always, thank you to our fans and friends who love and support us. To the DJs who play our songs and songs by other working bands. To the festival organizers who give us the opportunity to share our music. And to the dancers, who stomp their feet, clap their hands (on 2 and 4), and feel our music with their bodies and hearts.

Track Name: That's That
Some say a woman is a delicate thing
I know a few ladies like that
This lady is a tramp and I don’t hold back
I got what it takes and that’s that

If I don’t buy it how can I sell it
I only wanna give you the facts
Ain’t got no time to tell you no lies
I got what it takes and that’s that

So gimme sugar, spice,
Everything nice
I want you to take me places
Gimme sugar, spice,
Don’t think twice
Let’s take care of business

You don’t need to stress to impress
I only wanna know the facts
Don’t hold back just give me everything
Coz you got what it takes and that’s that
Track Name: Three Lovers Blues
He’s my slow burnin’ daddy
Burnin’ nice and slow
He’s my slow burnin’ daddy
Burnin’ nice and slow
He’s barely out of bed
I’m already out the door
He takes his first bite
I’m done asking for more
He’s my slow burnin’ daddy
But I still love him so

He’s my silk talkin’ honey
Speaks so soft and low
He’s my silk talkin’ honey
Speaks so soft and low
Some girls want a man
Who loves to scream and shout
But a man who can whisper
Knows what it’s all about
He’s my silk talkin’ honey
And he’s won my heart

He’s my easy ridin’ papa
See how he rides along
He’s my easy ridin’ papa
See how he rides merrily along
He rocks up into town
Loves me all night long
But when the morning comes
I know he’ll soon be gone
He’s my easy ridin’ papa
He’s mine from dusk till dawn

He loves me all night long
See how he rides along
Yeah baby, he’s mine from dusk till dawn
Track Name: High on Life
I don’t need a drink
To get me through the night
Don’t need to puff the magic dragon
To make me feel alright
Keep your powders and your pills
I’m happy to get high on life

See, I had my share of booze
Got drunk with the best
Popped all the chill pills
Smoked joints like cigarettes
My box was hot
But I burned too fast
Yeah my life got so crazy
I got rid of all the rest

Now I drink shot after shot
Of the best coffee in town
Drop out on the dance floor
With friends all around
Turn on some music
Tune into my muse
Coz when the going gets tough
The tough can get high on the blues

I don’t need a drink
To make my world go round
Yes I kicked all my kicks
But I get by anyhow
So smoke ‘em if you gottem
Raise your glasses high
Coz life is still a party
If you’re wet or if you’re dry
As long as we’re together
We can all get high on life
Track Name: I See You
I see you
Even when the view is hazy
I see you
Even when you think I’m crazy
And you know that it’s true
You can’t hide coz I see you

I hear you
When you cry behind your walls
I hear you
And I answer to your call
When I reach into you
Don’t you worry coz I hear you

I feel you
All the worries on your mind
I feel you
All the things you long to hide
What it means to be blue
Yeah I know coz I feel it too
Just like you
