about

The first of a series of seven inch vinyl releases by McKisko through El Nino El Nino Records. Cover artwork by Caitlin Franzmann.

Time Off 'Single of The Week' Nov 2011
"The A-side 'Good Grief' is spectacular - lulling you into a false sense of security with lush vocals and a simple progression. It's not until the third section of the track where all the individual elements that have been building up come together into a mash of weird timings, conflicting scratchy sounds, vocal edits and abrasive organ stabs. Side two is less dense, but showcases the extremes of Franzmann's voice, with her delicate Australian accent creeping in delightfully when she whispers."

Track Name: Good Grief
Do you hear the wicked voices, they come for me at night.
Hang in the air above my body, holding back the light.
And when you're waking, do you feel you've fought a battle deep.
Cast your sorrow, find your holy peace where you breathe.
Oh my little self, she hovers by the door.
Smiles a pretty smile, it's me that she adores.
And if I kick her she won't faulter, a thread it still remains.
She smacks her lips, jumps on my back.
A firm hold on the reins.
Track Name: Oh Oh Oh
Oh oh oh and beyond, the feeling is deep, the feeling is strong. Hold hold hold what you know, hold it for two and hold it for so, we we we can be part of the glorious chaos that litters our path and I'll say, say no goodbye so wrap all your tears in your laden sighs.
Oh what the night can hold when all is forgiven and the air is cold and we roam from the streets we know and touch on the waters that roar below and oh oh what can be heard when I lay on my back and hear for the birds, there's a promise in their song, nothing in this could ever be wrong.
You drive without knowing how you came to be here, gathering bones. The water it pulls you but you will not be bruised. Your body it flails, but it always clings to you in those heavy heavy boots, oh those heavy heavy boots.
Come now here, you've held through your day to this twilight hour, there's warmth in your face. And the floorboards shriek beneath our embrace.
Now go to sleep, and I'll stay awake.
