    Central Meaner Street is the first and only full-length LP by EX~PO (now Papermaps) -- a Toronto-based rock quartet formed by producer/songwriter Dean Marino with Todd Harrison (bass and synthesizer), Wendy Leung (keyboards, vocals) and Bobby Lee (drums). Their music blends elements of indie rock, art rock, experimental, shoegaze and electronica while maintaining strong pop sensibilities.

    Papermaps rehearses, writes and records out of Dean’s studio, Chemical Sound, which is known for its warm and spacious atmosphere as well as a massive collection of vintage gear. Dean has played host to bands such as the Black Keys, Sharon Jones and the Dapkings, Tokyo Police Club, Born Ruffians, Sweet Thing, C’mon and many more.

    Look for forthcoming releases by the band under the name Papermaps.

Track Name: Tasty Bites
Chorus
Come now comrade, give it up, let me have that, it’s a tasty bite.
Throw a morsel to the mouths, let them savour, it’s a nasty fight,
A tasty bite,
VI
Get on a board make a statement through letter,
Get on a mic, let them hear it, even better,
And when we break for an hour, maybe we can go for a stroll in the park,
And try to forget, you can’t always be a clever, sport.
Chorus
Come now sister back to work, we’ve got deadlines, got to make tonight,
Pass the monument, now look, time is wasting, we’ve got facts to write,
To make tonight,
VII
We read the report, we get our orders together,
Get on the air, make it simple keep it clever, sport
And when we’re done for the day, maybe we can pass one around in the park,
I’m going to forget, try to make it feel better,
Bridge
Try to feel better….
Chorus
Come now comrade, give it up, let me have that, it’s a tasty bite.
Throw a morsel to the mouths, let them savour, it’s a nasty fight,
A tasty bite,
Come now sister back to work, we’ve got deadlines, got to make tonight,
Pass the monument, now look, time is wasting, we’ve got facts to write,
We’re going to make tonight.
Track Name: My New Story
My New Story
(intro, which is a vamp then the chorus)
VI
I am the game that still remains
In our hearts, last forever, in our wilderness,
Here we are, still wandering,
Through promises, made forever
When you were nine and I was ten.
Chorus
I’ve been making new stories now,
They’re the kind that don’t involve you anyhow,
I’ve been slowly writing them down,
Cause’ I know I can’t be hanging around.
VII
We’re still the same, you and I,
It’s in our eyes, when we ponder our wilderness,
Behind a veil, still reckoning,
Travelling made in secret,
When you were nine and I was ten.
Chorus
I’ve been making new stories now,
They’re the kind that don’t involve you anyhow,
I’ve been slowly writing them down,
Cause’ I know I can’t be hanging around.
Bridge / Solo
Chorus
I’ve been making new stories now,
They’re the kind that don’t involve you anyhow,
I’ve been slowly writing them down,
Cause’ I know I can’t be hanging around.
