about

Erik Blood Seattle, Washington

Erik Blood creates music that lives in the magic hour. His production is a nuanced secret told only to his co-conspirators (Shabazz Palaces, Moondoggies, THEESatisfaction most notably). After two albums and a film score, Blood is delving further inward, into the dream, and returning with tales and melodies that evoke the warmth between two bodies and the dizziness of love, sex, or other substances ... more

Track Name: No Idols, Only Gods
It calls us in a wordless language
We answer in subconscious sways
Possessed we speak in song like phrases
Before wailing altars we prey

Who will take us to the other side?
Only gods

There is no holy land to walk on
No diamond could obscure these rites
The ritual performed around us
Imbues you with the gift of sight

Our deities will walk among you
The false will steal from high above you

No idols
Only gods
Track Name: "Rachel"
Keep still
You’re shaking like an animal
Who’s trapped inside a cage
Be Still
You’re moving like a warrior
Who’s stepped out of her cave

And never seen the sun
You’ve never seen the sun
So Far So Far

Rachel, Rachel,
I am coming back for you someday
Track Name: Queen of the Parade
I don’t want to bring you down
You’re better in the stars
I like to watch you fly there
But I can’t go that far

I try to be your shine
I’ve never hit that chord
But I’ve touched your fire
And I watched it roar

I am not of the things which you are made
I’ll never be the queen of your parade
But in the stars is where my head is laid

I am not of the things which you are made
I’ll never be the queen of your parade
But I will step in time with you honey

Don’t want to burn you down
Just want to watch you rise
Engulfing in your heat
Everything in your sight

I am one of you now
I am part of your light
A series of small fires
To burn in endless night
