Spinning Wheel

from by Madame Česki

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    An alluring 12 page colour booklet and gatefold case.
    Artwork exclusively crafted by Scottish embroiderer Scott Ramsay Kyle.
    Includes lyrics for each track (in English).

    Performed on instruments such as strings, dulcitone, harpsichord and saw, Madame Česki creates a tapestry of songs in a folk tradition. Her topics include birds, spinning wheels and spoons made out of bone.

    Madame Česki's biography includes performing with Gruff Rhys, Collectress, 10 Mewn Bws, Marques Toliver, Fiona Bevan and Orphans&Vandals, yet this is her first step in front of the mirror.

    The songs are rough hewn from the mountains, with eerie remembrances and obsessive patterns, recorded naively, with devilish vocals and strings.

    Includes unlimited streaming of PALIMPSEST via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

Dreams are dancing everywhere
Boat is gently rocking
Swim right over, won't you catch me when I'm drowning?
Still and sleeping
You are silent in your reverie
Can you hear me calling?

Spinning Wheel!
You turn a thousand times
My hand at the cradle
Golden thread of mind

Warp and weft of day and night
All around me, brilliant light
Stars of blue, stars of gold
Safe in your arms
Wear the cloak of wanting
You and I are walking,
Talking without words
We thread the final stitch

Spinning Wheel!
You burn a thousand nights
My hands turning faster
Looms of words and lights
Spinning Wheel!
You turn a thousand times
My hand at the cradle
Golden thread of mine

So my brain and heart
They stop to turn like clockwork
Deathly sleep encase me - will I ever wake?
Dreams are filled with visions
Apparitions, missions
Voices sweet and devilish
Day and night are one

Spinning Wheel!
You burn a thousand nights
My hands turning faster
Looms of words and lights
Spinning Wheel!
You turn a thousand times
My hand at the cradle
Golden thread of mind
