Michael Walz The drumming, unconventional instruments and especially the vocal styles... wow. saw this in a mpls basement last night and transcended time and space... Favorite track: Dog Star.

Alan Terrill An unusual combination of instruments that works really well thanks to some great arrangements. The singing is a little odd and maybe will put some people off, but there's plenty of all instrumental stuff so do stick with it, it well worth it.

Hidden kingdom You are high And untouched by my reaching hand I wallow in the mud As your golden chandelier Orbits my head Of unseeing eyes And unhearing ears
Dog Star 05:32
I am divided for love's sake For the chance of union And they shall gather my children Into their fold There is no bond that can unite The divided but love Invoke me under my stars
My mind formed a picture Then my mouth formed some words A bright stream that flows A bright stream that flows Black is what comes before Then red drips from your mouth A white tooth that aches A white tooth that aches
48 Laws 05:22
I am calling from the table that overflows You my children are under many laws Heavy burdens Heavy burdens Rest now and take your fill 48 forces that you are under but know not of 48 forces that you bow down to but know nothing of Hundreds of voices that are all calling from your window Hundreds of voices that will murmur and murmur and murmur Until you hear them They are calling from the table that overflows They are holding out their hand to that hungry child
Brought Low 04:16
I am underneath, I am crumpling into an unseen hole Green and glistening, I have grown into a thin layer of scales I am crawling on my belly
Raised High 05:47
I am passing through a golden archway In my tongue there is a speechless quivering Song bursts forth My insides swell Open mouth Let it stream out, out, out I am the equivalent of its flowing vastness I am the needle that has pierced the veil of unknown things
