All songs written, recorded and performed by Patrick Bailey


After a somewhat knotty hiatus, LoOmis is back with Shark Water. LoOmis is the everlong musical muse of Patrick Bailey, a prolific songwriter involved in much of the sounds generated in New Orleans since the mid 2000s, that channels hip-hop centered beats through ambient guitar work. Shark Water is the epitome of refinement in regards to the expansive catalogue of LoOmis. Bailey’s guitar tapping and ethereal chords are uncompromised yet yield to prevailing song structures, and poetically driven lyrics stretch across enigmatic swirling percussion. Despite the blunt nature of the project, LoOmis delivers an abrasive release that curbs affliction.

Track Name: Deep
You're the one who keeps the lights on
As I float in more of the same
Through the legs of the titans
A vital part to the game

...In a bag left for us
(Do we dare?) (Do you trust?)
There's a light overhead
We can see through the dust
Track Name: Topsy
We don't have to stay my dear
For it's the longest night of the year
It's ok to bathe right here
Tomorrow's the stage I fear

We don't have to stay or go
But this place is a mistake I know

You can hang me up for hours
Or hang me up for days
I don't really hang out anyway

Where's your love?
Where's your love at right now?

We don't have to say "I don't"
Because I know we can go alone
Track Name: Hopscotch
The ball drops at a great time
We'll take tomorrow, we'll take tomorrow fine
As you fall off and forget how
We'll take your money, we'll take your money now

We take off and rent time
We wake up with red eyes
As waves hit your face in the morning
We'll stay like the peace in this place

It fills us with deadlines
And creeps up at bedtime
Death like your breath in the morning
But stays like the weeks on your face
Track Name: Shark Water
They set us up just to fail
And take the wind out your sail
If you leave me here all alone
Take a number as you go

It's a good time to break, good time to break

You can stand by or stand alone
Please don't feed me to the animals
You can cry until the cows come home
If you can't break it, fake it
But just make it on your own
Track Name: A Lady... A Cake...1950
I cannot react
I take it on myself
Thinking of your hair
I can't hold my breath

I thought you'd be home by now

If you could make up your own ending
Would you write it down yourself?

As I play guitar
I pretend we are
On a boat
All alone
Just making out

I thought you'd be home by now

You're home by now
Track Name: Campfire Breath
I need you
And I'll sneak around just to keep you
Now who needs more?
You're always around just to keep score

I can dig my own hole

But you already dug mine
You take all my dimes and all my free time
But I want you
They all feel my burns when I can't have you

I can dig my own hole

Make it with the grace of time
Track Name: Going Toast
You blink when the cupboard's bear
It will fill up when there's time
You think that someone cares
But the problem isn't mine
You hold your breath like there's help in death

We are, They are
We're on a tare and
They are what we are
Beyond repair
I dare

Take my steady hands
They'll be anxious in due time
Either teach this dog to dance
Or take the party inside
You say we're ruining their plans
But the problem isn't mine
