Aengus Gaffney Raw, jingle-jangly, click-clacky, and awesome. Creepy harmonies, cackling banjo strums, and caustic percussion combine for a very unique listening experience. One of- if not the best new album I've heard in a long time. Favorite track: Born In A Goldmine.

Track Name: Prowlin'
Down below there beats a bottom
Proud I pulled and peel n' fought him
Now he's sold in gravel savage
No light, day bright, hopeful habit

Now I know there won't be a light everywhere
Ill thy golden sight unfold
In my home he come and told
Killin' on the wind side there unspoiled

Then my soul sunk to the bottom
Crown on gable, leaving autumn
Pull ashore my heithen Ghetty
Ode to someone, said he led me

Prowlin' on the wind side, leavin' home
No on goes, No one can go
Setting sun and on head, oh hung high
Hating, holding, oath they never told

Then one night my plan was weak
All my guards they doze asleep
Ill I come in frozen heat
Pale I pose on land defeat

Then got hold him
Came here leanin'
Sell your bones on rollin' grate
Head on go and kneel to widen
Bleeding peeling pine can never grow
Blowin' by in shivering light
It's cold in boiling find away

Cumbersome to get lent away
From home..........
Track Name: Born In A Goldmine
Born in a goldmine......

Old gleaming light
Shone upon the ground
Where fallen
Stones will never keep...

I won't go around to be tortured alive
I'll stay here forever
In late night's glow I revoke no
Call me summon

Peered into a fold
Breaking backs
Marked by coal
(Born in a goldmine)

Lung worn as foot
Old as shame
Marked by soot
(Born in a goldmine)

All of my weakness
(I know)
Call'd in a secret
(Meadow)
To get away

Seem will not open
(Na noooooo)

You've got your chosen sickness
Followed by hallowed witness
In pits of dirt and thunder
Engulfed by darkness

Hunters track your path
Don't trust the shadows you seek

You've got your chosen sickness
Followed by hallowed witness
In pits of dirt and thunder
Engulfed by darkness

Hunters track your path
Don't trust the shadows you seek
Or the graves they keep
They got headstones made of gold........
Track Name: Uncurl & Swell
The seeds that I sow
The plants that I grow
Uncurl and swell in the valley below
Where dust and sand
Fill my clothes
The sun it burns
And the wind it blows...

Oh I'm wounded see
Cracks in the soil beneath my feet
Take my breath from me
Gasping lungs within my sleep

Everyday my hands grow dry
Cracked open by the candle light
Blood on wax
Wax on stone
Stone becomes dust
Then the dust becomes bone


Oh I'm wounded see
Cracks in the soil beneath my feet
Take my breath from me
Gasping lungs within my sleep
Oh I mourn to see
What my land has come to be
Not a drop will fall
Call on the sky my sins dissolve

If you find yourself no longer free
Unshackle your chains and follow me

I don't wanna go.....
To the fire below......
Track Name: Soiled Robe
Lower bones
Lower bones
(In the hole)
(In the hole)

I know
The bones
Were stole
My gold

In a day I stole
Had my way
Filled my full

In a day
Dug my low
Filthy now my soiled robe

When you gonna give cleanliness
A place in you soul
When you gonna give back all
The bones that you stole

Er' I saw a burning straw
Down in the thicket
Everywhere along the way
So dry my tongue won't lick it
If I had a pale and rope
Said then I'd dip it

When the well is warm

Wind is weanin' where we lie
Eyes are aimin' in the sky
Wind is weanin' where we lie
Off to join the firefly

My body breaths

Applecores!
Are thrown this way from all directions
Please

Balding badly
I don't
Have the
Will to
Bend apart with
Crude utensils
Cut from
Wood and
Mined in
Quarries
Owned by
Savage money makers

Lower bones in the hole
Lower bones in the hole
Lower bones in the hole
Lower bones in the hole
Track Name: Bright & Open
Fight the fog
You run high
I'll reclaim what's stolen
Seize fire

Been down runnin' out to find
All my stolen dreams that died

All my
Lying softly

On the ground I saw which way I know why....

Barely hanging on
For dear life
I fell to my grave

All my.....
Lying softly

Walkin' the eye
Walkin' the eye
Walkin' the eye
Walkin' the eye
Wakin' alone with a
Moan why
Dare to defy
Dare to defy

Walkin' the eye
Walkin' the eye
Bearin' a lie
Dimmin' divide
Callin' it right
Callin' it mine
Mockin' divine
Mockin' me why

Hold my Height
Rope my ripe
Nettle spine.....

My future's bright and open.....

Soon to come flame that brings upon the season
One flame, on fall.....
Track Name: Fortify
Throw fire on the water
Cold night getting hotter
Heal all with the same light
One lies in a cold fright

Though they may be kept alive
All my heart is pulled aside
Light of honor betray one hope, one way
With the healing power forsaken

Cold night on the water
One mind in a wander

Come be tame don't choose the lie
On you throne you gaze with ice
Light of honor betray one hope, one way
With the healing power forsaken
No there's nothing but the power to save him...

I said leave this holy host
Shallow sweet
Craving hurt the most
Walk oh friend so true
And the sweet
Melts right into you

Oh why fortify, feeling cut down
Oh why fortify, there crawling on the ground
Oh why fortify, to the mean one that I found
Oh why fortify, to the mean one.....
Track Name: Slippery Slide
Oh slippery slide
Lick my lips, they're dry
Drip on down my sides
Come to me at night

Somebody better say my name
Cause my house it don't feel the same
With my nose up to the window pane
Somebody better say my name

Came from my brother's tongue
Slipped out and slit my gums
Cut tooth and shakey thumbs

Seven years went by
Curse upon the bloodline
Slippery slide
And he cried

No need for that now
Need to carry on
Find a different one

No need for that now
Need to carry on
Find a different one

And I can't get enough
I can't fight it

Old slimeball sucked me in
You get the dirty mutherfucker
With his head crushed in

(Oh my Lord, Oh my Lord)

Oh it seems I'll have to do it again

(Oh my Lord, Oh my Lord)

Oh I said all men

I never laid my head upon a stone so cold
