Out to Sea 03:36
Where can you go if you wanna find me? Down in the valley where the rabbits run free Where can you go if you wanna find me? Over the stream where the heron walks free Where can you go if you you wanna find me? Up on the hills where the foxes flee I’ll be there if you wanna find me Out in the wild wild land Where can you go if you wanna see me? Down to the river where the fishes swim free Where can you go if you wanna see me? Out in the field where the deer run free Where can you go if you wanna see me? Over the cliffs where the hawk hunts free I’ll be there if you wanna see me Out in the wild wild land Where can you go if you wanna hold me? Deep in the woods by the lightning tree Where can you go if you wanna hold me? In the cold dark cave where nobody goes Where will I go if you don’t want me? Where will I go if you don’t want me? I’ll go down the shore to swim in the sea What will I do if you don’t want me? I’ll keep on swimming right out to sea Yeah I’ll keep on swimming right out to sea Over the waves ‘til the sea takes me….

The morning is clearing And a bright autumn day Awaits us breath baited Longing to say That the winter’s the hunter And summer its’ prey I’m just the messenger Blowing your way… The morning is clearing And a bright winters day Awaits us breath frozen And can’t really say That I’ve got you in my grip And I’ll hold you at bay Yea, until the spring blossom And melts me away… And the winter’s the hunter And summer its’ prey I’m just the messenger Blowing your way… The morning is clearing There’s a bright brand new day Unfolding before us And all we can say is There’s nothing I want more Except you to stay Around me forever Like the weather today… But the winter’s the hunter And summer its’ prey I’m just the messenger Blowing your way

Gypsey Race 04:43
There’s a soldier on the wall before the mid-winter sun Gazing over the heather at the end of the day If there’s fire in the sky he’ll be ready to march He’s sick to death of the wall what does it mean anyway? What does it mean anyway? Where the river turns east there’s a corner to meet When night balances day since the beginning of time There’s shouting and fighting and standing out in the sky He’s had enough of the wall it’s not a reason to die What does it mean anyway? When he gets there he’ll see what the future holds There’s only bad news coming when the waters flow It’s time for a change gotta find a new face Come meet at the bend on the Gypsey Race So let us meet at the bend on the Gypsey Race All roads lead to the stone at the bend on the Gypsey Race I’m the soldier on the wall Looking out at the sky I’ve had enough of it all It’s not a reason to die I’m that soldier on the wall at the end of the day I’m sick to death of it all what does it mean anyway? All roads lead to the stone at the bend on the Gypsey Race

Aftermath 04:46
Our house still stands like a broken tooth In the jaws of the enemy fire The lonesome drummer played his last We stood by and saw him fall There’s no one left to beat the drum Only love can see us through I‘m listening to the sniper’s footsteps As he creeps across the yard Remembering the days of peace You and me babe, we had time to kill Life is much too precious now Only love can see us through To the quiet place where souls are free And the rivers flow so cool and clean Down the mountainside to the seas of green Like a dream so long ago Hear the siren wail as gunfire hails Crackling over the hills If you make it through the barricades I’ll find you in the aftermath Of this war that breaks hearts Tears souls apart Only love can see us through this time Only love can see us through There’s gunfire in the hills tonight Is love enough for you? My fluttering heart is holding on Is love enough for you? I’ve been searching for an age or more But there’s nothing to be seen So I raise a glass to the lives we lost You and me babe, we had time to kill But life is not so precious now It’s the end of the line for sure The end of the line for us this time Ravaged by this war.

On the Run 02:28
On the Run Last night I killed my lover Saw the blood glisten on the knife My lover treat me bad Just like no man should treat his wife Now I wake up in the morning Hold my head up to the sun I raise my hands up to the sky Lord what have I done What have I done Oh Lord what have I done? No more will he beat me No more will I fear No more will I see the blood Go round and round my dear No drugs for day dreaming to save me From My Baby Got a Gun I raise my hands up to the sky Lord what have I done I’m on the run, oh Lord I’m on the run but - the sun shines down I’m on the run but the sun shines down I’m on the run but the sun shines down Coz I’m set free Yeah the sun shines down, down on me Oh the sun shines down coz I’m set free Yeah, the sun shines down, down on me Coz I’m set free Yeah the sun shines down, down on me Oh the sun shines down coz I’m set free The sun shines down, down on me Coz I’m set free

Hawk Moon 03:20
C’mon c’mon we’re goin’, we’re settin’ off soon And we’ll get there by the light of Hawk Moon The shooting stars trailing a blaze in our wake And the sky’s travelling backwards It’ll be east come Daybreak The rain hits the windscreen at ninety at night As our throats hit the whisky We’re travelling light Through the town and the city We’ve never seen When the whisky’s all gone We’ll taste the sea The sea green. And we’ll get there by the light of hawk moon

Stay, stay, stay Stay with me stay until the morning Stay with me stay until it’s dark again Stay with me stay until the morning Stay with me stay until it’s dark again Stay in this house stay until the morning Stay in this house stay until it’s dark again Stay in my room even when I’m gone Stay in my bed I’ll give you movies I’ll give you paperbacks I’ll give you stories I’ll give you everything I’ll give you dreams of your own, just like real life I’ll give you dreams of your own I’ll give you overtures I’ll give you galleries I want your secrets Give me your everything I’ll keep you here in the morning, here when it’s dark again I’ll keep you here in the morning, here when it’s dark again I’ll keep you here in the morning, here when it’s dark again Even when I’m gone You’ll never know when it’s morning, or when it’s dark again I’ll keep you here I’ll keep you here You’ll never know My blinds are down All light’s electric

Night Heron 09:03
“Imagine a lake; very still, no ripples, as clear as glass. And as night falls the full harvest moon rises into the September sky. Little fires burn all around the lake… Wood smoke drifts up between the stars… On the lake, a boat; and on the boat, a huge paper heron all lit up with electric light. And from the boat the sound of the gamelan fades into the distance as the boat rows towards the far shore. We watch this, looking down through the trees… and we see… the Night Heron… You are the night, heron I am… Over the silver moonbeam plated lake our eyes swam southwest to find the full moon and I still believe we can moor our boat to the farthest shore. Listen to our hearts and the gamelan, pure and right inside us… You are the night heron I am… and even if there is a stone’s throw between us south and north still still together alone entwined and like and being, our sweetest dna flowing between us around and through… you’re coming with me I’m coming with you…”

about

Debut studio album by Loudhailer Electric Company - new band with a big history in the post punk psychedelic and original Indie scene, featuring ex members of seminal cult bands Red Guitars, Dead Fingers Talk and The Planet Wilson.

“Cutting edge, psychedelic folk music of the highest quality.” Alan Raw, with Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music.
“It’s a fantastic album!” Pete Maher mastering professional for The Rolling Stones, Jack White, Pixies, The 1975, Lana Del Rey…

“A compendium of psychedelic sounds which tap into the folk and rock genres, driven by hugely talented and passionate musicians – beautifully poetic – I’m hypnotised.” Nix Chidlow – BROWSE – Independent Arts Culture.

“…a magic album. What really draws out the juice is driving through the forest at night with the windows down – wind blowing my hair everywhere – playing it LOUD. I am sure the BIG Lizards and Bandicoots, Snakes and Owls think I’m extra-terrestrial as I whizz by. It is a very very rich experience…” Jungle Jim Ward, Byron Bay, New South Wales.

“C’mon, we’re gonna take you on a trip (the opening line of Night Heron) fits the whole album on two levels. Lyrically, the trip is like an open top bus ride around their locality with tour guide Lou giving you the lowdown. Musically, it’s more of a psychedelic trip with folky influences and some stunning playing.” Davey Hammond, Sounds Magazine

Album of the Year 2016: “Cursus is a wonderful album featuring nine original tracks of psychedelic sounds underpinned with a myriad of references to folk, classic rock and other genres. The music is highly atmospheric, immersive and hypnotic with the ability to transport the listener to another time and place.” Across The Universal Soundscape
