Nostalgia’s a tough thing to grab on to. It’s not so much something as the idea of something; it’s catching a glimpse outta the corner of your eye but when you turn to look at it it’s gone, or never was there at all.

Jackson Reed’s songs are nostalgia, and when you hear them you're struck by reminders of elsewheres and befores, of summer’s past, and of love’s come & gone the same way. They send you somewhere but you can’t ever tell where exactly: maybe it’s the sounds of 1968 and you're in Chicago or Buffalo or Detroit; maybe it’s the sounds of up north and it’s winter or it’s Wednesday or it’s yesterday afternoon.

Maybe it’s all of them and maybe it’s none but it doesn’t matter, cuz what you're really hearing, after you go where you go and come back, is the sound of someone here and now: it is sometimes sunshine and sometimes rain, it is happy and it is sad, but it is Jackson Reed. - Ryan Gaio

Track Name: Generation Vietnam
There’s flowers growing on the graves
Of all the soldiers who got saved
By a guy they thought was God
Man oh man where’s the applause

Global warming am I right
So much power so little sight
Keep on coming baby girl
Don’t you know you are the world

Generation Vietnam
I don’t even own a gun
Won’t you get a haircut, son?

Young adults all getting laid
Drinking vodka lemonade
Life’s a party, life’s a laugh
Time machines will take me back

Back to when we were the peace
Sun the earth the evergreens
1960’s what a time
To be so young and have to die

Generation Vietnam
I don’t even own a gun
Won’t you get a haircut, son?
Track Name: Goodbye Endless Summer
Goodbye Endless Summer
I’ll probably leave in the fall
What’s your plan anyways
We’re going different ways

I want to take a trip
Just to prove I exist
See the world with my blue eyes
And I won't be so quiet

Maybe I’ll actually go
Take a train to Chicago
Find the flame inside me love
Can’t say I’ll miss you though

When my heartbeat knocks
The passing time does stop
Nostalgia / memory hangs in the air
And I remember too much

Now was never the time
Love stopped at the finish line
Love was never yours or mine
Love was never the time

Goodbye Endless Summer
I’ll probably leave in the fall
What’s your plan anyways
We’re going different ways
Track Name: Welcome Home
Welcome Home

Take your shoes off
At the front door
Mom doesn’t like
Dirt on the floor
She made sure
All your things were there
So you wouldn’t freak
About the new year

Welcome Home

Catch the flies
Buzzing by
Eat their wings
Make them cry
To all the bugs
In the front lawn
They all come out
To hear a sad song

Welcome Home
Track Name: Dearest Surrender
Dearest surrender
Please take my hand
Succumb to peer pressure
Those other boys don’t understand
Go under cover
Ask some questions now
About your older brother
And his backwards hats

My fellow sister
Your hair is burning up
And it couldn’t look greater
If you were a superstar
That’s my opinion
Nothing will change my mind
My dearest surrender
You are on my mind
