Wise Blood – Alarm

Pittsburgh’s Christopher Laufman’s Wise Blood moniker appeared in 2010 with the release of an experimental sample-based bedroom EP that eventually led to the much more polished release of These Wings . The EP was an excellent, highly addictive journey, where Laufman’s voice sounded like everything from MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden to Youth Lagoon and Jack White placed on top of equally multifaceted musical excursion ranging from freaky R&B, psychedelic pop, jazzy hip hop beats to abstract synth experiments. In retrospect, it’s one the most fascinating EP’s of 2011, one I revisit with increased frequency. The band’s debut full-length, Id, is out now on Dovecote.

Wise Blood – Alarm Lyrics:
I can’t think
Someone’s sitting right in front of me
I need some personal space
Alright, alright, alright, alright.

Souls, keeping my fingers crossed
They’ll get me out of this place
Alright, alright, alright, alright.

Licking gasoline off the walls and the floor
Only two lit sirens, but I’m looking for more
I’ve got a stack I’m placing, dried hands are made
For someone ready to hold my hand.

All the love in the miserable songs, turning things
I remember a story about a family tree
But I can’t recall just how that story ends
But I can pretend, pretend, pretend .

I can’t think
Someone’s sitting right in front of me
I need my personal space
Alright, alright, alright, alright.

Souls, keeping my fingers crossed
They’ll get me out of this place
Alright, alright, alright, alright.

I can’t think
Someone’s sitting right in front of me
I need my personal space
Alright, alright, alright, alright.

Souls, keeping my fingers crossed
They’ll get me out of this place
Alright, alright, alright, alright.
