Bedroom songs with Brazos

Brazos is Martin Crane. They’ve got a full-length from 2009 (Phosphorescent Blues) and two EPs, that I know of, from 2007 (Feeding Frenzy and A City Just As Tall).

The 18-minute video, filmed in Bushwick, Brooklyn, features five songs, three of which are new.

SONG LIST:

“The Observer”
From Phosphorescent Blues.

The Observer (by Adrienne Rich)

Completely protected on all sides by volcanoes
a woman, darkhaired, in stained jeans
sleeps in central Africa.
In her dreams, her notebooks, still
private as maiden diaries,
the mountain gorillas move through their life term;
their gentleness survives
observation. Six bands of them
inhabit, with her, the wooded highland.
When I lay me down to sleep
unsheltered by any natural guardians
from the panicky life-cycle of my tribe
I wake in the old cellblock
observing the daily executions,
rehearsing the laws
I cannot subscribe to,
envying the pale gorilla-scented dawn
she wakes into, the stream where she washes her hair,
the camera-flash of her quiet
eye

“Men are Wild Creatures”
New.

“Day Glo”
Also from Phosphorescent Blues.

“My Good Friend from Virginia”

“Deeper Feelings”
New.

    Another great post, I love the voice of this artist. Every time I come here I’m surprised which is great. This time I had a wonderful time watching this video. I think nothing is more touching that an artist performing solo, there’s a state of emergency and nudity which is going straight to the Heart.

    At least that’s how I feel ! Thanks for the great discovery my favorites is clearly “Men are Wild Creatures”
