"SMOKE 'em OUT"

Today, we share a new song to inspire the weary-disappointed hearts of so many crest-fallen citizens. We just started working on a new album, but “Smoke ‘em Out” begged to be turned loose on the world now, as a means of participation during these turbulent yet invigorating times. 

Joined on guest vocals by our fellow Future Feminist ANOHNI, “Smoke ‘em Out” welcomes the new character who will be occupying the White House with a mob of women and children armed with forks and knives. In the wake of this un-natural disaster, we feel a call to rise, shout, and burn the house down. 

 

Bums rush out the door

Mama didn't want you anymore

A thornless rose in her side

Despite being bonded by blood lines

It wasn't the right time

She said no more free load

This is the end of the freak show

Half shake and heart broke

Half slewed half snapped

A rat trap snapping back

Hand bone hand me down

Baloney sandwich lonely clowns

Smoke laugh toke craft 

Porn blood piss grass

Piss miss heart hand

Tried to take a stand

Down dropped sales low

The joys and woes

The curtains slowly close

Burning Down the House

Smoke em out smoke em out the dead girl shouts

I was on the verge like so many times

Got children and wives waving forks and knives

The new sound circles round

Slaughter raging death dice 

Fall hot house burn down

Foes upon foes, west to east it goes

The dead girl says let's just be friends

In the glorious tone of marrow and bone

These days of ore

The chance we meet once more 

The smoke lightning crack asunder

The boom of guns the peel of thunder

"Edda"

"Edda" will be our third theatrical collaboration with director Robert Wilson. The first was "Peter Pan" in Berlin, then Pushkin's "Fairy Tales" in Moscow and now our work takes us to Oslo where we have composed music for Wilson's rendition of the ancient Norse myths. We have been greatly vitalized and challenged by each of these projects and drawn deeper in theater as a world where we can fully express.

Opens 4 March 2017

“Where have you gone, beyond the limits dusk and dawn, and so on.”

We are preparing for a little string of Fall shows on the west coast, and, at the same time, scattering autumn seeds inward and outwards, drumming up new dreams, blowing the ashes of old ones, cold and dead; a time to refresh.

As the leaves begin to die, too, our faded desires, making room for new births.

We are stirring a cauldron of new songs, delving deep into family sorrow, and looking hard into the distorted face of those who, possessed by demons and angels, mutter under breath curses and prayers.

Two autumns ago we launched, holding hands with fella mates, the thirteen tenets of future feminism, the second; THE SUBJUGATION OF WOMEN AND THE EARTH IS ONE AND THE SAME, has resurfaced in our new work, and is hot on our tongues as we open doors again, peering out to the world, calling out with open hearts.

Our most recent record, Heartache City, we released last fall on our own label, Lost Girls Records; a long time dream which has hardly dawned, with much more on the horizon.

We toured Europe and a few shows in the western United States, kicking it all off in Austin’s SXSW, a wild dusty ride with some great backyard sessions you can find online..."Un Beso" and "Tim & Tina".

Some darned case of rusty sore throats and going completely hoarse forced us to cancel the California shows, which have finally come back around, and we are excited to hit the stage in our favorite season, Halloween!
