1. I wanted to write an original Halloween song,an indie folk song, not just a tune about monsters and pumpkins and people on drunk escapades. I think I never wrote such a depressing tune, so I think it fits the mood of Halloween quite nicely.

    The idea for this song came when I tried to find some new alternative music focused on the theme of Halloween. Asides Marilyn Manson's cover, "This Is Halloween", which is a cover from Tim Burton's musical, "A Night Before Christmas", I really had no other options - not in the indie folk genre, not in indie rock, folk rock - nor in other alternative music genres. So there you go.

    (I might not be too good at searching online, so it could be my mistake that I didn't find anything - - - but if you did find some good Halloween songs out there, please leave the link in a comment - I would appreciate it!).

  2. In spirit of the Holidays and in anticipation of the release of the "Monsters In The Christmas Album", here's the music video for the song "The Eyes, The Beard, The Nose, The Stomach, The Lungs" by Indie Folker.

    The Christmas EP will be a free download and it will be available on http://www.indiefolker.com starting December 1st.

    Here's the lyrics:

    holidays are coming
    the full moon shining like a baby's cheek
    rolled up in the blankets of defeat
    i wait for the trick or the treat
    you talk about illusions
    oh i can laugh at all the ways
    i find myself looking in the mirror
    and somehow i'm not amazed
    there's a ghost in the toast
    looking on down hey don't we know we got it made

    baby don't you worry
    just close your eyes and slowly open up your knees
    rollin' out a rocket on the rhytm of your soul
    we might be out of control
    sure i can't walk out
    oh but i can not stay
    there's such a thing as comming on too reckless
    but that doesn't apply to me
    as endless the shore
    as independent every single thing you say about

    the eyes the beard the nose the stomach and the lungs
    the way he flies a sleigh up high with reindeers in the sun you know
    I never believed anything about
    the eyes the beard the nose the stomach or the lungs

    holidays are coming
    snow keeps falling like it's never been
    bottled up inside the furnace of the street
    melted away by the heat
    or constantly evolving
    you can barely count the ways
    we scre over each other
    and we never ever take the blame
    if everything goes
    then why are we to care that we no longer care

    so you never wanted
    to trust the things that keep you from where you ought to be
    tied up with the money and the bills
    it should be better than this
    but now it feels over
    oh, you've wasted all your years
    and now you're sitting, waiting, wishing
    someone would just count the tears
    of an endless remorse
    as controversial as every single thing they said about

    the eyes the beard the nose the stomach and the lungs
    the way he flies a sleigh up high with reindeers in the sun you know
    I never believed anything about
    the eyes the beard the nose the stomach or the lungs

    the eyes the beard the nose the stomach and the lungs
    the way he flies a sleigh up high with reindeers in the sun you know
    I never believed anything about
    the eyes the beard the nose the stomach or the lungs

    the eyes the beard the nose the stomach and the lungs
    the eyes the beard the nose the stomach and the lungs
    the eyes the beard the nose the stomach or the lungs
    the eyes the beard the nose the stomach or the lungs

  3. A live rendition of "Be A Wolf" on the street. This song will most likely be on the second Indie Folker album, it is not included on "Monsters In Rome".

    Thank you! :)

    Lyrics:

    I guess I won't linger upon it
    It has all been said and done
    My train leaves here in the morning
    towards the sun

    Towards the sun
    Towards the fading sun
    Towards the sun
    Towards the fading sun

    I feel the men they all avoid me
    like I'm some kind of a brute
    the cars they pass me by
    I travel by foot

    But when wild dogs dig my bones
    and nobody knows my name
    I want to be a wolf
    Your freak of a man
    I want to be a wolf
    Your freak of a man

    I guess the poet's side of the story
    is always better left untold
    I take the words he left upon me
    uncontrolled

    Uncontrolled
    I am uncontrolled
    Uncontrolled
    I am uncontrolled

    When wild dogs dig my bones
    and nobody knows my name
    I want to be a wolf
    Your freak of a man
    I want to be a wolf
    Your freak of a man
    Yeah I want to be a wolf
    your freak of a man

    Freak of a man
    your freak of a man
    Freak of a man
    your freak of a man

  4. View with fish, a bowlers hat and an umbrella. Also, an acoustic live performance of my song "Down Slow" off the Monsters In Rome record. It's about one of those muddy winters and other things totally unrelated to that. I grew up on a street called "Mud Street" when I was a child, I think that's where my obsession comes from :P.

    It's true btw. It was called "Mud Street" and it was always muddy.

  5. This is some old footage from the public domain, shot sometime during the Great Depression. I think the scenes tell an interesting story that goes well with the song. I hope you like it!
