mossed Filthy, dirty, acidic folk and blues with patches of pastoral beauty. It's powerful and moving stuff! It's got a raw, lo-fi sound, but sounds surprisingly crisp and clear despite this. Definitely worth throwing some extra cash at this unique and captivating release. Also, the lyrics are fucking SPECTACULAR! Favorite track: Stung.

about

Recorded on my phone and iPad in the parking lot outside my work in Pinetown and in my garden in Drummond using old acoustic instruments that don't really work properly or stay in tune anymore.

Instruments include a banjoline, a banjolele and two guitars - one steel string, one nylon string.

Grotesque music for grotesque times.

Track Name: Dirt Preacher
Here lies the Dirt Preacher
Dust all in his skull
I pulled away his jawbone
And this is what I found

His dry and sinew tongue
And at the end it forks
From lies and curses that he told
To vindicate his work

And even as his body
Crumbles unto dust
The pain and violations
Of his actions are not lost

Howling wolves and lions
Are waiting at your door
Eat the flesh upon your body
That guards the shadow of your soul

You will not be forgotten
As they spit upon your grave
But rust and moss do not forgive
Even unto dust
Track Name: When the World Starts Making Some Goddamn Sense
I never thought about it close in my mind
But seven billion people getting ideas all the time
Should surely lead us to some kind of paradise

The more I listened the more I thought maybe
All these people around me are just crazy
Or maybe I'm just lazy

So I started to think am I out of my head
Or is everyone else just filled with bad decisions and fear and dread
When folks elect to shoot themselves in the foot with cold pretense
I guess I'll try to find my faith when the world starts making some goddamn sense

What makes you hate so good
Is it the thought of your daughter going to bed
With a man who's the same as you in the head?

I really used to believe
That people are truly kind and good and want the best
But that was back then, way back when

So I started to think am I out of my head
Or is everyone else just filled with bad decisions and dread
When folks elect to shoot themselves in the foot with cold pretense
I guess I'll try to find my faith when the world starts making some goddamn sense
Track Name: All the Kindness
All the kindness
And all the love
And all those precious years
You gave to us

And all those letters
You wrote by hand
That you sent to me
In foreign lands

I was always close to you
Sitting by your side
Ever loving forever lasts
Even in a last goodbye

I said goodnight

And all those card games
That we played
We were young and we were fooled
So you'd win... anyway

All those songs that you
Used to sing
Mozart operas and "Tommy" by The Who
They were your thing

But I don't remember
Any times of grief
You were gentle, you were kind
And sensible beyond belief

Oh you'll be missed

All the kindness
And all the love
How I miss you
And your everlasting love
Track Name: Kingfisher
With a beauty like yours
A gem in the sun
The colours that shine
Your song that is sung

I feel overwhelmed
So I cannot breathe
The beautiful kingfisher
Flies away free...
Track Name: The Sun Awakens
The sky is empty
The desert yawns
The sun awakens
The blood red dawn
