about

Kitchen Hips Los Angeles, California

Kitchen Hips is the moniker of songwriter and folk musician, Aerienne Russell. Alongside her beau Evan Hemsley, Russell makes melodious music steeped in hominess, heartache, and nostalgic whimsy.

As a self-taught musician with deep family roots in Appalachia, her music speaks to a simpler time, like the songs of The Carter Family and Connie Converse with a pinch of Lee Hazelwood’s wry wit.

Track Name: Me Oh My!
What do you know?
Well I don't know
What do you say?
Well I don't have anything to say anymore

What do you think?
Well I don't think
What'll you drink?
Well I will drink anything that you pour

How do the birds fly by
at a rate that's the same as the clouds in the sky
How will I get by?
With a little bit of loving and a lot of me oh my

Me oh my, me oh my
Me oh my, me oh my
Me oh my, me oh my!

What do you got?
Just what I got
and what do you want?
Well not a lot
but I always seem to want more.

Where will you go?
Well I don't know
and where will you stay?
Well I can't say
but I got to go for the door

How do the birds fly by
at a rate that's the same as the clouds in the sky
How will I get by?
With a little bit of loving and a lot of me oh my

Me oh my, me oh my
Me oh my, me oh my
Me oh my, me oh my! [x2]
Track Name: Gardenhearted
What’s growing in the garden
is growing in my heart
and it keeps-a-growin' up
and it keeps-a-growin’ up
x4

And up x 12
Never enough.


Get your hands up in the dirt
we’re holding hands and trying to flirt
but it keeps goin’ sour
yes it keeps goin’ sour
x4

And sour-er x12
Just stop.

Pick a lilly, bat an eye
don’t be silly, don’t be shy
The world is getting warmer
climb a ladder, not the former
x4

Just climb up and up and up x12
Never enough.


My nails are gettin’ harder
like my heart is hardly pardoned
from always stayin’ shut
Will it ever open up?

Open up x 12
I think not.
Track Name: Longer
Life's a game for fools
and I'm a fool for you, my baby
If I could play away each day that you're away
things would be better.

Instead I sit at home and fret
regretting every word of this letter.
I try to time the time that passes by my eyes
but they get wetter.

'Cause it's oh so long
and oh so lonely
It's oh so long
and oh so lonely
But it also glows
It's all so lovely

My mama's rule was not to cry for fools
so I stay somber
The park is dark, the lights are off, the dogs don't bark
but my heart wanders

I wonder if the thunder comes a little later than the lightning
cuz it's dumber
or if time slows down when I am down
or if my eyes they do grow longer

'Cause it's oh so long
and oh so lonely
It's oh so long
and oh so lonely
But it also glows
It's all so lovely

So lonely
so lonely
so lonely
so lonely
but so lovely.
Track Name: Someday My Dream'll Come
I dream a dream, I dream of dreaming
I've dreamed a dream like this so long
I wish my wish was wishing wishes
Instead I wish my dream would come

I know I know that no one's nothing
But I'm a no one, that I know
so if my wish was knowing something
I'd wish to know somebody whole

I know I'll keep dreaming
'Cause I know someday my dream'll come

Somebody somewhere's gotta got it
This live we live they must have lived
With neither dream nor one presumption
About getting what they gotta get

I got to go 'bout going on
off what I got and what I know
I know no one don't dream a dream
and I know someday my dream'll come

But I know I gotta keep dreaming
'Cause I know someday my dream'll come
Track Name: Pacific Ocean
Worries
I've got worries
or have
have they got me? [x2]

I had myself a particular notion
to sit right down beside the ocean
I had myself a particular feeling
today's the day the world goes keeling over

I have myself all kinds of doubt
about setting my sights on getting out of here
I have myself all kinds of doubt
about setting my sights on getting out of bed

Body
I've got a body
Or has
has it got me? [x2]

I had myself a particular notion
to sit right down beside the ocean
I had myself a particular feeling
today's the day the world goes keeling over

I have myself all kinds of doubt
about setting my sights on getting out of here
I have myself all kinds of doubt
about setting my sights on getting out of bed

Pacific ocean [...]
