From The Recordings Html

Opens with a haunting atmosphere of ethereal vocal over resonator guitar and signature bass hook and hand percussion, similar to T Bone Burnett. Strings then enter accompanied by deep vocal drone, almost Tibetan or Indian in nature. Themes are repeated and developed before moving into an uptempo conclusion notable for rich hand percussion and a haunting gypsy violin lead. Exquisite vocals with a signature hook “yodel” on “Aloha” that is captivating.

Lyrics

Aloha - (Nashville Sessions)
Words and Music by Laurie Raveis

Green charred carpet room 23
Search of existence, my homily
Hot copper wire sustains
Devil’s triangle is a losing game

Aloha, black light
Aloha, souls rise tonight
Aloha, black light
Aloha, souls rise tonight

Belly swollen, baby large
Tired of Father strike so hard
Mamma left running years ago
Pipes and foil heat aglow
Soothes me

Locked in room 23
Ditched my baby, my family
Orange sign posts condemned
Truth, I’m holding my only friend
Rock me
Rock me

Aloha, black light
Aloha, souls rise tonight
Aloha, black light
Aloha, souls rise tonight

Junkies messing up the stratosphere
Refrigerant released in the atmosphere
Rusty taproot penetrates
Snake eats its tail and waits
New Psyche
Or same cycle

Aloha, black light
Aloha, souls rise tonight
Aloha, black light
Aloha, souls rise tonight
