about

This is Co.Z's first album/mixtape/demo, featuring Zoë's clever odd concepts with Jack's growing rap lyricism and mixing style, completed in the Fall of 2008 when the duo was still known as ZoJa.

It features their first single "Handyman," as well as the introduction to the Co.Z Kidz.

Using Garageband instead of Logic Pro or Pro Tools, Jack was not yet an experienced enough instrumental composer; the instrumentals were provided by Digital Productions, except for "Recess" which was produced by Gripp of glassEyeballs, and "Moment of Modesty" which features the song "Noctuary" by Bonobo as its instrumental.

Track Name: Luck Struck
I dropped a glass today and watched the shards land in between the tiles
You brought the broom to me, we swept up debris into three small piles
He tripped on his laces, she couldn't even brace, he went out for a while
They got lost on a trip, they met in the middle, now the drive the same mile

Ooo, luck struck us down
Ooo, look what we found
Ooo ooo, it's all around
Put your ear to the ground

Take a second, take a look at what we found you
Just look around, look around you
Chance flying around, so let me ground you
Take a look, take a look, a look around you

Luck struck like you caught a rebound
To take a second look, just look around
Chance flying around, now let me ground you
Just look around, look around you

Uh, yeah, look around you
See if what you found needs to be around you
Take a look and see if you didn't take a chance
That could have developed to labels with major plans

I spit these enveloped fabels of illicit flavour
To show you people human features not to be aimed for
From way before Jesus ever stopped in a manger
I'm elevating your brains to the top from the main floor

So listen up! And please look around you
People have got most of your dreams impounded
You're surrounded, but break free
Never know how struck with luck you may be

What I mean: please take a chance, go make a risk
Switch up your styles and desire 'till it fits
Observe all the options, see what you've found here
Right, left, up, down, look around you

Ooo, luck struck us down (look around, look around you)
Ooo, look what we found (look around, look around you)
Ooo ooo, it's all around (look around you)
Put your ear to the ground (look around you)

Take a second, take a look at what we found you
Just look around, look around you
Chance flying around, so let me ground you
Take a look, take a look, a look around you

Luck struck like you caught a rebound
To take a second look, just look around
Chance flying around, now let me ground you
Just look around, look around you

I dropped a glass today and watched the shards land in between the tiles
You brought the broom to me, we swept up debris into three small piles
He tripped on his laces, she couldn't even brace, he went out for a while
They got lost on a trip, they met in the middle, now the drive the same mile

Take a second, take a look at what we found you // I dropped a glass today
Just look around, look around you // and watched the shards land in between the tiles
Chance flying around, so let me ground you // You brought the broom to me
Take a look, take a look, a look around you //  we swept up debris into three small piles

Luck struck like you caught a rebound // He tripped on his laces
To take a second look, just look around // she couldn't even brace, he went out for a while
Chance flying around, now let me ground you // They got lost on a trip
Just look around, look around you // they met in the middle, now the drive the same mile

Ooo ooo ooo....
