Come Closer, Sisters

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

And I always liked the way you said the word 'buried' with a 'u' and not an 'a' - like "you're 'buried' in the ground."
But the hawks sing it, sing it like they speak it, like it's parted. And the hawks sing it, sing it like they speak it, like it's parted. Parted down the middle. Parted like a heart.

And I always caught the words that you spit from your city.
Words like to live, words like 'forgive', but some words just try to kill me. And here they come - Flying from the great mouth of Zeus. And here they come - Lookin' like the blackest cloud. Killin' the sun - Look at them now.

And I always thought the great wooden gods had no problem with me, but that's not true. And it's always been said, but I just didn't want to see. Come look at your brother with a burden in his eyes like a backbone. With a 'u' and not an 'a', like he's "buried in the ground."
Come closer, sisters. Come and look at them now.
Come closer, sisters. Come and look at them now.
Come closer, sisters. Come and look at them.
