Young Elk – The Dark Side Of The Holy Ghost

Was für ein wundervoller, introvertierter Song! Die Band Young Elk kommt aus Portland und liefert hier das zaghafte Titelstück ihres Debütalbums.

Das Debüt erscheint in ein paar Tagen und ist geprägt von einer Nahtod-Erfahrung des Frontmanns Ezekial J. Rudick.

“What most people will tell you is that a brush with death draws them closer into the divine. They turn things around. They press deeper in. They draw nearer to that spiritual ‘life force.’ That didn’t happen to me. Instead, I came out of the OR more confused, angry and heartbroken than I had been in my entire life.” (via)

How I wanted to be dangerous
but I also want big business,
raised up again like Lazarus
like a suicidal mistress.

And how I want to be alone,
just play Molina on the stereo
and hear the saddest songs I’ve ever known
