about

Stockton/Italy's B​aseball Gregg is back big-time in 2016 with their first full-length LP, Vacation.​ If the duo's self-titled E​P captures a wide-eyed stroll through an evening city, Vacation is a full-on immersion in a different reality.
Split between California and Italy, Baseball Gregg crafted V​acation in Samuel Regan's childhood bedroom in Stockton, California, where the bed is a drumset and the boys sleep on the floor.
The 'Gregg calls upon the muses of classic producers like Thomas Dolby and Brian Wilson to create a walk-able soundscape. From the turquoise-lined dance beat sheen of P​alace to the frenetic urban beat of On the Bus,​ V​acation aims for thrills, not frills.

Track Name: Pneumatic Girl
I can see myself running out of breath
Losing sleep with you
My pneumatic girl

Even if your skin’s not wonderful and warm
We’ve got something more
My pneumatic girl

Your eyes are so cold
I can’t let go
Of the feeling that your love has wrapped around my heart

And as our love grows
Time will not show
For your polymers keep our love so fresh and tight
Track Name: Sad Sandra
I’m sad, Sandra, cause if I die
I won’t see my daughter high
When she’ll come home drunk at midnight
Spewing joyfully her prime
We would stare ourselves in worry
Checking the clock twice
Then scurrying to the door
As soon as we hear a sound of keys falling to the ground

I’m sad, Sandra, and I’m slowly dying
But I’ve decided to lie
I won’t tell you how I'll miss
The scent of your hair while I kiss’em
I’ll disappear as a burning leaf
With smoke and some kind of relief
But in my mind I’m still afraid
I don’t wanna die now

Cause if I die, I die alone
And ascending like a drone
I’ll be unnoticed in two years
My memory gone with ease, no more tears

I’m sad, Sandra, now you know why
Don’t worry I’m a tough guy
I no longer want to talk
here it comes the last insulin shock
This life turned out to be futile
My body feels so stupid
Don’t forget as I go with the flow
I’m shooting my last free throw

Cause if I die, I die alone
And ascending like a drone
I’ll be unnoticed in two years
My memory gone with ease, no more tears
Track Name: Palace
Sweet Nectar dripping down my chest
Desire. Wondering what comes next.
Breath coming quickly, adrenaline and speeding pulse.
Beige Liberation
Look in my eyes and lose control

Across the large room
Gravity calls you
Follow its pull to me

Meet me at the Palace of Luxury
So I can watch you dancing in front of me
The way you move my heart slips away from me
Track Name: Ulysses
I bought a phone, then I made a son
While surfing crowds in 2004
I left my daughter naked in the woods
I miss my old wife, not so much I mean

We started touring, we knew a chinese man
He told us ‘Someday you’ll kill your closest friend’
I ate a weird cheese, I almost died that night
And when I came home I was really feeling strange

No, Ulysses don’t mess with me
Track Name: On a Bus
I had an abortion which blossomed last night
And meantime you all were getting drunk
This city is a bummer and I don’t feel that well
Are you down to come dying in my bed
Come on die

I think I’m a loner, should I say it’s a bug
Of my endocrine cells producing that drug
That makes me so nervous almost everytime
Then I’m secretly coverd with slime
In my pants

I first met you on a bus
And I have always loved you from day one
I first met you on a bus
And I’ll always love you like day one

Things are getting worse, why don’t we move to Japan?
Only me and you in a tiny van
Is there any chance that we can get old together?
Let me be your best friend forever
Five years is a lifetime but girl please hold on
It’s a promise, and I’ll keep it, come on
I keep on trying but every effort’s in vain
And you leave me all alone in the rain
With my change

I first met you on a bus
And I have always loved you from day one
I first met you on a bus
And I’ll always love you like day one

I’m floating down here and I’m asking for help
I’m floating down here and I’m asking for help
Oh my dear, I've become a kelp
Track Name: On the Screen
Golden lights they spell your name
dazzling me with your fame
your face before my eyes
Oooh, I could die

Moving out this tired town
Moving on I’m wayward bound
Hollywood’s the place for me
Oooh, just wait and see
It’s the way it’s gotta be

Feels like a dream
This life on the screen (life on the screen) and I don’t care what they say
It’s the only way to play
Dream life of living on the screen

Golden lights they spell my name
But I’m oh so filled with shame
My face before your eyes
Oooh, I could die
Moving out this tired mind
Drugs are strong hold my demise Hollywood’s the death of me
Oh just wait and see
It’s the way it’s gotta be
Track Name: Regatta
Your life is like a Tumblr
Aesthetically well made
I wanna scroll down through the endless pages of your daze
I always think of your laze
And lomographic scars
Make suddenly their way pretending this is what you've done
Today I've seen a movie
'To kill a mockingbird'
I dont remember exactly what the plot was all about
I'll take another math class
Another fail to come
I only wish that happiness will last until next month
I'm sure that with good plastic
You can bake a fine cake
But now i know for certain future'll never be the same
I often think of our race
Through adriatic woods
Just driving fast a moped till the sunset comes
Track Name: Burn Up
Blood is dripping down my face in the winter frost
Freeze to death under a burning crystal cross
Hide my face under a veil of broken lies
A burning building feels so warm inside
My hands are so cold that I’m going to let go
And let you all know
Let me burn up
Ice dripping down my chest from the frozen lake
Melted puddles of a past mistake
Walk alone along a trail of broken lies
Drowning now it feels so good to die
Track Name: Saudade
Alone and so far from my home, that’s where you found me
Without any words of my own, your kindness astounding
The sound of your voice slowly drowns out in the ringing of my human ears
Horizons of memories stretch out for so few years
And I can’t believe it’s time to say goodbye
Invited me into your home, your lives all around me
My foreign feelings exposed your kindness astounding
The look on your face now has died, buried in 6 feet of dirt in my mind
But don’t feel bad ‘cause you know: we had a good time
And I can’t believe it’s time to say goodbye
Saudade
