After the success of Fruitilyzer, the do-it yourself kit to build the techno-cucumber that was featured on the biggest Swiss talk show, Tim & Puma Mimi release a new EP with a new song Sakana (produced by the Zurich ukulele star Kid Schurke) and 3 songs from the last album “The Stone Collection of”. On the B side, you find stunning remixes by the Berlin based musician and producer Robot Koch (Jahcoozi, Project:Mooncircle, Robots Don’t Sleep, Casper, and many more), by the Zurich bass monster Bit-Tuner, by Knor (drummer of Tim & Puma Mimi), and, as a habit on the 12″ releases from Mouthwatering Records, by the label boss Filewile. The release comes on vinyl, digital download and stream. On the digital version you’ll get a bonus remix by Play Patrik (Morphologue) from Bern. The funky artwork and the postcard series is designed by the Zurich unit Resort.

Here is too gloomy
How about your place?

オヤ向こうからアイツがやってくる

足取り軽く王様気分で

苦しゅうないぞ
右手を高く振りかぶって
Yeah!
落ち込んでるのか
足をひくく振りかぶって
Yeah

勢いあまり石ころつまずき
膝かっくんで王様転倒
勢いあまり石ころつまづき
ホラそこで笑いこらえてるヤツ

The weather is perfect and I feel good
Oh somebody is coming down the street
The weather is perfect and I feel good
I skip and feel like a king

My fellow friends,
raise your right hand high
Yeah!
Are you down?
Raise your feet a little
Yeah

I’m too excited and trip over a pebble
The king goes down on his knees
I’m too excited and trip over a pebble
Hey you, are you laughing at me?

Gimmi high 5, gimmi low 5

I’m a king cus’ I feel good
I’m still a king even though I fall
I’m a king and have a good time
I’m a king but sometimes cry
My law is high 5 low 5
Here’s the kingdom
and its population is one
High 5 low 5 kingdom

Track Name: Sakana (Kid Schurke's Bait)
魚 Sakana

魚は泳ぐも その丸い目は
冷たく光って 泳がない

すいすい泳ぐも 水曜なんて
ほ乳類より 関係うすい

魚は泳ぐも こちらのように
世の中なんかは 泳がない

すいすい泳ぐも 推古時代とか
むかしのことなど きにしない

魚になりたい 魚になれない
残念だけれど あたしは人間

A fish doesn't fish crap like us

魚は泳いで 海は渡るも
境目なんか どこにもない

すいすい泳いで 水平線の
向こうへとけてく 流線型

魚になりたい 魚になれない
残念だけれど あたしは人間

A fish doesn't fish for crap like us

私は人間あなたも人間
時々目が泳いでああ呆然
水曜日には燃えるゴミよー
泳げ世間の荒波を
歴史を覚えて狙え100点
海を渡るには赤い旅券
水平線はいつもファーラウェイ
ノーウェイ人間やめられない



A fish swims but
its cold shining eyes never swim*

A fish swims smoothly but
it has less relation to the water day** than mammals

A fish swims but
it never swims society like us***

A fish swims smoothly but
it doesn't care about the past

I wanna be a fish, but I can't
I'm unfortunately a human

A fish doesn't fish

A fish swims through the ocean but
it sees no borders

A fish swims smoothly and
its streamline body melts into the horizon

I wanna be a fish, but I can't
I'm unfortunately a human

A fish doesn't fish

I'm a human, you are a human too
Our eyes sometimes swim, and we don't know what to do
Don't forget to put out combustible waste on Wednesday
Swim this world with social graces
Aim for the perfect score on the history test
Don't forget your red passport for crossing boarders
The horizon always seems faraway
No way, we can't quit being human

A fish doesn't fish for crap like us

*eyes never swim=it has nothing to hide
**Wednesday in Japanese is 水曜日=water day
***swim society=get social graces
