The Book of David

from by Madame Česki

supported by
/
  • 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

You said I'd be free to come to you
You said you'd be waiting out for me
This communion - I am waiting

Book of David written in my time
It is written in your hand and mine
Signifying - Listen to me

Book of David
Are you listening?
Book of David
