about

Reboot of a previous track, Mordechai Deadfellow: bit.ly/2e7mvOU

This is a conceptual piece about the Yom Kippur temple ritual and the banishing of the Azazel goat. The sins of the nation were laid on the head of Azazel, who was then led out into the wilderness and thrown off a cliff.

And what happens when the goat-herder gets lost and ends up eating Azazel? He's turned into a grotesque, 20-story goat monster named Mordechai Deadfellow, that's what. All true, 100%.

lyrics

Grasping the horn
A swell of emotion
Sacred fire
Blood on the altar

Storm's on the way
War and inflation
Try to atone for the sins of the nation
Into the sands and the desert sun
Leading Azazel until the hunger takes me away

about

Jim Frankenstein Minneapolis, Minnesota

"Irreverent yet poignant, the experimental indie Ghostbustery of Jim Frankenstein evokes a malty, existential angst with the bourbon oak undertones of a bassy pasquinade. Jim is truly the soul of an old man who died asking 'why?'" -Stone McSullen
