To Fold 05:19
Winter will fall away, parting til another rainy day It’s as if there’s no escape from this Place, another bed to eat Whisper from between the sheets: Ask me what you want to be Have you seen my face? It bears a telephone I’m begging through the dialtone Tell me where I need to go Let’s climb inside these walls Open up Alright let’s Sit there and, open mouthed, figure outloud The wishes how they sparkle when you fail to see So stick your fingers in the essence, is it not enough? And ask it if it’s worth it now to fall in love! Take everything you wanted to put in a home And cast in a shell of what is all your own Let’s climb inside these walls Open up Stand tall your face forgives you This road is not within you We know what you’ve been hiding I’ve been waging war I’ve been waging war upon your memory You knew this nature from the start I’ve been waging war upon your memory The nature to let it fall apart I’ve been waging war upon your memory If peace is a lesson of the heart— Why have I been waging war upon your memory?
Signs 03:43
All the signs led you home In silence again Chasing a cross to bear The necklace your mother wears The anchor in stone that held you there Where your mind Could always silence The way that time went by without you You were alive With something fighting The better side of you, now you’re holding on Barely holding on To it Where is your head now?
Backslider 06:46
You were – You were the first To turn me outward Lost for the last time In mirrored stranger’s eyes At the world’s end — we gathered the rain, The beasts of earth unchained Oh my god All my gods Have come Hands hang toward the sun Burning and turning for no one, Lost imaginings A phantom or a king — Which one comes to me? Like a makeshift malady The weight on me in sleep Keep god in the machine Until now my soul is love Heresy and lust are on my tongue The world that I once loved Fear will be the father of us all Oh my God, Oh my God is gone. We will be born again In the star light…
Mirrors 03:49
Gave my glistening wounds away The mind makes mirrors when there’s room to play So hang your efforts and raise your chin… But I took what I wanted Turned my face from the sun and Swore to moon I could follow (But she is not a fool There is nothing to follow… Brother you learn to choose) So I took toward the sun Gave up everything I could become Saw the ghost of my false sympathies Forging iron to bear down on me Where he sang: Don’t you know that a drought is increasing Where the road severs lines in the evening? Drink all the wine, spare the reason This is only a dream I left my blistering womb today A mindmade weapon and some hell to pay But if I caged my efforts and wore your skin… Would I take what I wanted? Turn my face from the sun and Dare the moon not to follow? (But I am not a fool Dig a hole where you’ll wallow Til there’s nothing to lose)
Collapse 01:55
To lie in fire To hide in fire To fight in fire To ride in fire To light a fire To hide a fire
Before Us 02:52
Creatures from the dawn slain inside your arms you never asked for it The rolling eyes of glass Red-yellow and black... Complications, Complications are out of your mind Just your hands And a hole in the ground In the eyes of your God Do you still see yourself? In the eyes of the law Is it heaven or hell? They were here before us They were here before us...
Red Moon 03:25
Spiderwebs of smoke crawlin’ down, drifting down Fireflies leavin’ trails of light Buzzin’ ‘round in a dark sky Traces... Fireworks boom as we watch fire die, Fireworks boomed as we watched our fire die It’s time to let go, my cover is blown Oh how I’ve grown Emerge the greater me Fly on through fire Changing my tune Changing my colors Red moon rises...
Lifted 04:33
We walked alone, in front of us: Soft setting leaves and a precipice Then suddenly Your face gives off And I’m lifted And I’m lifted Awaken, you’ve waited long enough Roll down the hill again and fall Into Your eyes were born in front of me, In front of me You said it would fall apart You said To doubt, to fold to breaking To break, to dance in painted awe If I’m listening If I told you to wade in the fire would you burn slow And rise as a brighter man? If I told you to wade in the fire would you burn slow And rise as a brighter man? I am, I am

Sedgewick Chicago, Illinois

Sedgewick is a Chicago dream-folk trio formed in 2014 by three multi-instrumentalists. Their unique live set up of guitar pedals, synths, upright bass, and vocal harmonies combines alt rock, electronica and their roots in folk music. In their first year, they earned the title of “Best New Folk Music Act” from Newcity, and Obscure Sound called them “masters of emotionally stirring songwriting”. ... more
