The Lickets: Song of The Clouds
In Spring, an expansive, crystalline and kaleidoscopic live composition slowly and organically emerged, transformed like a strange labyrinthine magic crystal garden, while The Lickets traveled across the continent, playing in small underground spaces.
The Lickets: Eidolons
There’s a beautiful old word in one of Walt Whitman’s poems that we chose as the title for this collection of songs, which were made in reaction to watching a short, silent series of everyday images. While viewing the images, we rapidly made sound sketches for each of the scenes, and then built them into songs. Here is some music that sounds like water in a pan, some buildings, a woman smoking, traffic, a doctor’s office, rocks, standing on a roof, rolling dough, a napkin, a lake, and someone whisking flour in a pan.
