Zombie Jesus is real. Paintings of him exist.
For anyone who hasn’t heard her, I recommend listening to Unwoman! She has an amazing voice
why thank you!
Happy album release day to Unwoman, whose words and music continue to awe and inspire me. This album is her most impressive work to date.
Some of the things you will find in these songs are: fallen empires, regicide, distance, attraction, and repulsion all wrestling with each other on planets near and far, all wrapped up in gorgeous layers of cello and vocals. This song is about falling in love in Chicago, and it makes me ache in the best way possible in anticipation of the loss of some things and the gaining of others.
we walk on a warm night down your block
always with arms or eyes or lips locked
we are the worst at hello and goodbye
that heavy feeling, tomorrow I fly.
Gods of the World! Their mouths are dumb!
Your guns have spoken and they are dust
But the shrouded Living, whose hearts were numb,
have felt the beat of a wakening drum
Within them sounding — the Dead men’s tongue —
Calling : “Smite off the ancient rust!”
Have beheld “Resurrexit,” the word of the Dead,
(Words of the dead)
(Written in red)
Open the prisons and make men free!
