Some stuff you might not know (or even want to know):

As Juniors in college, this album is a funny and slightly embarrassing representation of our band. Although released in 2014, all the songs and lyrics were written during our years in high school (2008-2012). When you are 15 years old, it is hard to write good lyrics when your view on life doesn't go beyond video games and television. But these songs awkwardly capture our teenage years and all the memories that go with it.
Regardless of all my insecurities over how vocals sound or how the drums are mixed, I'm proud that we finally get to release this album that we never really planned on releasing.

These songs can only be found on this page!
Enjoy!

History of "Est we Got"

The journey of this album begins after our senior year of high school. Since college doomed the existence our band, we decided to buy some recording gear and take a shot at making an album with no realistic idea of what we were actually doing. We didn't even have song names or even all our instrumentals planned out. When our senior summer ended, the rough tracks were finished but forgotten as we shipped off to our respective universities.

Two years later, we decided to give life to this dinosaur of an album and had it properly mixed and mastered by Phoenix Down Recording Studios in Boston.

Although released in 2014, the earliest track "SMB" was first recorded all the way back in 2009 (making it five years old)

about

J & The White Kids Massachusetts

Bred from pizza, rice crispy treats, caffeine, and teenage angst our band was formed in order to get girls. Once we found out that was not going to happen, we actually began focusing on our music. We're always playing of live shows, so we can pretty much rock the shit out of anywhere. It doesn't really matter if it is a basement, funeral, or synagogue. ... more

Track Name: I Guess
(verse)
I guess, this is the way things are
And I probably took this, A little too far
So Relax, you’re so easy to annoy
Don’t act, like you hate me
I am, So unpredictable
Irrational Spontaneous, So unconventional
You Love that, I’m driving you insane
I love that; I’m your biggest complaint
(Chorus)
Step off, Cuz I know you know me
Acting like You’re so conserved
You can’t stand me, I can’t understand you
I know you want me more…………..know you want me more
(verse)
I guess, I’m a little distasteful
But Its making you smile not being careful
But you love the fact, that were being so strange
You love the way, How we do this
(Chorus)
Step off, Cuz I know you know me
And it’s starting to get old
Act like you don’t care baby,
I just know you want me more…..


(last chorus)
Step off, Step off
Cuz I know you know me
Step off, Step off
Acting like You’re so conserved
Step off, Step off
Act like you hate me
I just know you want me moreeeeeeee……..

Step off, Step off
Cuz I know you know me
Step off, Step off
Acting like You’re so conserved
Step off, Step off
Act like you hate me
I just know you want me moreeeeeeee……..
Track Name: One Night Stand Ups
(verse)
I met another one, wanted to have some fun
Shes been out, its way to late
Wants go around She wants to go down
I guess, I cant complain
(build up to chorus)
And If I hoped it would last
Throw my hopes in the trash
I was in over my head
over and over and over again
(Chorus)
She said come out, come out with me
The music is getting louder, and were heading out to a party
(verse)
Couldn’t speak straight, It was getting late
She’s on the floor, shes dancing again
Don’t know whats next, Can’t read her texts
But I guess I can’t complain
(build up to chorus)
And If I hoped it would last
Throw my hopes in the trash
I was in over my head
over and over and over again
(Chorus)
She said come out, come out with me
The music is getting louder, and were heading out to a party
Track Name: SMB
Round and Round
You build me up and break me down
Without a stop in sight
I’m hanging on with all my might
But we’ll continue to fall
Till were nothing at all
Till were nothing at all
(verse)
So contradicting all the things you say
With everything not turning out the right way
You have an aimless, sense of direction
Always searching but failing perfection
(chorus)
Round and Round
You build me up and break me down
Without a stop in sight
I’m hanging on with all my might
But we’ll continue to fall
Till were nothing at all
Till were nothing at all
(verse)
Ive been searching, all around
But the same old, answers always found
Just to start back, at the beginning again
Just to go back, When I hit the next end
(chorus)
Round and Round
Another year has come unbound
And we haven’t come far
From where we already are
So we’ll continue to fall
Although I’m nothing at all
Although I’m nothing at all
