Big Blinding Star

from by Bowery Boy Blue

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Recorded at Steve Albini’s recording studio, Electrical Audio, in August of 2007. Stalk That Myth features a talented cast of characters, including Jason Toth (Edith Frost, Manishevitz, The Zincs) on drums and Marika Hughes on Cello.
    "Sometimes you hear music that is so heartbreakingly beautiful that you can't help being drawn to it. That is definitely the case with NYC's Bowery Boy Blue. Their CD, Stalk That Myth, plays like a lo-fi Americana orchestra. Touching vocals delivered in a way that you can't get out of your head, layered instrumentation... it's all there. Take a listen to "Come Closer, Sisters" and hear for yourself."

lyrics

You want your big star back, but I won't give it to you. I kind of like the darkness in your eyes.
And you want some golden light to shine on your golden face. I don't think my silver lights will do.

Big blinding star shining in your eyes, how many white hot nights can you fly that far?

I want a native son, but you seem to hesitate. An angel in the flesh might come for you.
And I don't have a thing to give, not like in the golden age. I don't have a thing to give to you.

Big blinding star shining in your eyes, how many white hot nights can you fly that far?

You want your big star back, but I won't give it to you. I kind of like the darkness in your eyes.
And you want some golden light to shine on your golden face. I don't think my silver lights will do.
