abe po' ugly - trail of tears

here is a song, made in the late night basement, by my brother aaron, with some guitar provided by his yelwar bandmate eric. we have shared a townhouse on and off for years with a basement we have slowly turned into a sometime recording studio, where we each spent many hours, and it has been the soil from which many of our recordings have grown, and the site of many band practices. in this song, abe po ugly re-writes folk legends, robin hood and geronimo. the guitars have a jagged swing, the vocals are gruff and dark. the song ends with mutterings, a home recording made with garageband and inspiration, desire, and probably boredom. the modern folk music of america. check out YELWAR on facebook.
