about

This intimate 3-song EP was recorded in two different studios in Ithaca, NY. Great for collectors who'd like to hear the pre-mastered mix of "Make the Sound" alongside the remix version featured on "Sisu Powder the Moon." You also get an early mix of "In Search of the Song of Solomon." Not yet an audiophile's record--hear the process of developing demos.

Track Name: Sisu for You
born on the same day / as MLK / you just keep walking / walk with me / to better and better days ahead / you just keep walking / walk with me / Ollie Ollie! / Finn Fogarty Tavares / the earth was frozen / the day this name was chosen / but you just kept walking / walk with me / to better and better days ahead / you just keep walking / walk with me / Ollie Ollie! / Finn Fogarty Tavares / walk like Farka Touré / to better and better days ahead
Track Name: Make the Sound (remix)
I have faith / cool and still like the water / from the bottom of a well / I forget who was stricter, Peter or Paul / but I'm not going to hell / see that fog outside in the night? / you can cut it with a knife / still remember how we cried / when I brought to you the girl / that I meant to make my wife / love to hear that whisper in my ear / make the sound I really want to hear / wie Liwa sagt / the Kino is dark / Du willst zu schnell den Bildern folgen / as we pass / a ghost in the park / feeding the birds / I've got the shirt off your back / when you say / you hate me Portugueses / the Doctor he says / I'm gonna go exactly where I belong / there really was no Paul when the man's name was Saul / and a Saul / us all he was / love to hear that whisper in my ear / make the sound I really want to hear / it's jouissance / but they call her real vampire of a girlfriend / Wo liegt der Heiland? / help her to give it back / which Gabe do you want to be? / I don't know what Beloved means / don't do that / your family won't recognize you / the Doctor's got black and blue swollen veins on his face / his breathing is strained / but we can answer the phone with a friendly "hello" / and say we love to hear that whisper in our ears / make the sound we really want to hear
Track Name: In Search of the Song of Solomon
a rain so soft fell on the ground / and on a newborn baby head / coo and laugh a brand new language / I loved you under raindrop rooftops / coo and laugh a brand new language / we have no longer access to the world we knew before / right now I can barely speak / and I'm shaken to the core / can't catch the words to sooth these things / that writhe and try to leap into eternity direct / dull and shapeless wail
