new body

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Originally recorded to 1/4" tape, this analog record features stripped down guitar-and-vocal folk arrangements of the album Necrobisect. Due to the time constraints of the medium, the song "Indiana" is not included on the record. The packaging includes an art card insert with a download code for the digital album, streamed here, featuring more elaborate arrangements built around the original tape recording. My hope in writing Necrobisect was that it could be enjoyed two ways, in the sparse intimacy of an analog medium as well as in the exuberant, somewhat haphazard framework of found-sound collage and electro-rock'n'roll.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Necrobisect via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

  • Poster/Print + Digital Album

    Well wouldn't you just love this full bleed glossy B&W heavy stock 11 1/2" x 11 12" art card to hang on your wall? Featuring the iconic Necrobisect text "it came out of the ground, through our mouth and into our body" in awkward script over an intriguingly dead couple, this is the perfect conversation piece for impressing a date or graduate student. Full lyrics, album download code, and tasty bits of gossip included on the reverse side.

lyrics

(for karis)

what will it take to be holy?
what will it take to be holy
here and now?
there’s an urgency! here and now—

tape over our Mouth
veil over our Eye

what will your New Body?
what will your New Body be
on the other side?
will you leap like a Lion?
will you be unburdened—a Butterfly?
what will your New Body?
how will your old Injury come alive?
how will you wear your Organs?

here and now—
ashes that you’ve become
ashes that you’ve won
your brow ashes that you’ve loved
and now—
coals that were your Eyes

I awake my Incision
the nerve endings come alive!
what will it take to be holy?
here and now—

I see blood on the streets
I smell blood in the water
and how—Jesus Christ at my neck
with a scalpel, necrobisect

what will your New Body?
will you be a Waterfowl?
newly birthed without history—
will you be a Barn Owl
in the moonlight?
will you wear it out proudly?
what will it take to be happy
here and now?
Lark, Lambkin, unlonely—

tape over our Mouth
veil over our Eye
