Take Heart, 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

Nature's thankless son, warring for the great town, set your steel-horse down. Come to the kingdom.
Sing of light and fire like you were set among them.
Sing into our ears like a great bird.
Sing of light and fire.
Sing of light and fire.
Sing of light and fire like a great bird.

King of stones and stars can you stand to hear them place yourself in the sun and rest a while.
Set your wooden heart ablaze in all the darkness. It's easy to see the light with your heart on fire.
King of stones and stars
King of stones and stars
King of stones and stars
with your heart on fire.

Come sisters, take heart.
Come sisters, take heart.
Come sisters, take heart.
He is singing.
Come sisters, take heart.
Come sisters, take heart.
Come sisters, take heart.
He is weakening.
