'When I Was On Horseback' - Arborea Live @ SXSW


just discovered...Arborea performing my arrangement of 'When I Was on Horseback' at SXSW 2014 (from Arborea's last album 'Fortress of the Sun'). I've added new lyrics and changed the historic setting of the song from Ireland to the American Civil War.

Standing Rock Plain (Lyrics):

Travel safe my dear, don't get caught in the rain,
was the last thing you said, before I rode away
(chorus)
I'm Taking my horse to Standing Rock Plain
Where the sisters and brothers all sing in refrain
Let the Waters run clear on our ancestral land
Don't want no black oil, nor the pain that it brings

Hope I see you my dear and our babies again
If the cops, armoured trucks don't haul us away
Please Mr President give us back our green Earth
No more black oil, machines, or red rust

(chorus)
Cuz I'm making my way to Standing Rock Plain 
Where the Great Sioux Nation all sing in Refrain
Don't want the black gold, nor the pain that it brings 
Let the waters run clear on our ancestral land

They'd lay that pipeline a thousand miles long
Cut straight thru the bone of our sacred old home 
and they'd lay that pipeline a thousand years more
pollutin' the waters with a future fargone

(chorus)
I'm Taking my horse to Standing Rock Plain
Where the sisters and brothers all sing in refrain
Let the Waters run clear on our ancestral land
Don't want no black oil, nor the pain that it brings 
Cuz I'm making my way to Standing Rock Plain 
Where the Great Sioux Nation all sing in Refrain
Don't want the black gold, nor the pain that it brings
Let the waters run clear on our ancestral land
...if we don't take a stand for all the babes just born
and we make our stand for all the children unborn

Buck Curran's 'Immortal Light' reviewed at Peghead Nation


Veteran KPFA Berekey DJ and writer Derk Richardson shares his thoughts on the vinyl edition of 'Immortal Light' via Peghead Nation! Out via ESP-Disk' and Obsolete Recordings. Happy New Year!
https://pegheadnation.com/commentary/derks-discoveries/bucks-vinyl-solution/
Review excerpt:
"One of the most sonically enveloping albums of 2016. Curran creates his spacious, slowly transmuting music by himself, multi-tracking acoustic and electric guitars, harmonium, flute, and banjo, singing through the ethereal fog on the songs “New Moontide,” “Seven Gardens to Your Shore,” and a timely cover of John Fogerty’s “Bad Moon Rising.” The CD version of Immortal Light is a beautiful thing—acoustic guitar notes crisp, spaces well defined, overall sonics crystal clear. But the vinyl edition is a revelation—palpably warmer, the edges of digital reproduction rounded off, the overtones fuller and richer, and the soundstage expanding in all directions to create an immersive listening experience in which it is easier to, perhaps impossible not to, become part of the music." - Derk Richardson/Peghead Nation
