Eyes Like The Sky" (narrated by Broderick Smith). The bad white men call him the devil. The Yavapai call him "Eyes Like the Sky". This story takes place in the hinterlands of the newly formed United States and territories in the years before and after the great conflagration called the Civil War. Men roam and fight each other to simply stay breathing. Muskets give way to repeating rifles, cannons give way to gattling guns. War nurtures weapons, but weapons clear the land. In the deserts of the southwest, old hatreds grow into new ones. Old beliefs are shattered by gunfire.
Eyes Like the Sky is the second studio album by Australian psychedelic rock band King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard. It was released on 22 February 2013 on Flightless. Described as a "cult western audio book", the album is narrated and written by Broderick Smith, the frontman for the 1970s Australian rock group The Dingoes and the father of King Gizzard keyboardist Ambrose Kenny Smith. The story revolves around child soldiers, native Americans and gun fights, all set in the American frontier.
As if you where in a Western yourself. Chad Blackwell Killer spoken word and absolutely rocking backing music.
The album was intended to be heard in its entirety, as it’s produced in chapters that span over multiple tracks. Both King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard and Broderick Smith recorded the piece from home. It should also be noted that Eyes Like The Sky was narrated on a Macbook microphone. This raw, lo-fi attempt truly works with the dirty nature that the story is telling. If it were to be recorded in a cleaner manner, the entire mood that has been encapsulated just wouldn’t be the same. This is strongly proven in ‘Fort Whipple’. LP+ - Halloween Orange Colored LP.
Featuring Broderick Smith. Album Eyes Like The Sky. Year Of Our Lord Lyrics The smoke from the mud-house curled up into the sky like an albino snake The two young men watched and counted the white men down in the farmyard A tall man and two shorter ones, maybe his sons A woman would occasionally come out from the shack Get water from the well in the front yard and carry it back inside A. small child would be with her The men watching on the rim had no calendars so they didn't know the date 12th of June, year of our Lord, 1854
Eyes Like the Sky is the second studio album by Australian psychedelic rock band King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard. Described as a "cult western audio book", the album is narrated and written by Broderick Smith - who tells a story of outlaws, child soldiers, native Americans and gun fights, all set in the American frontier. When asked about the album's influences, Stu Mackenzie alluded to the spaghetti western influence throughout the album, stating "I love Western films. I love bad guys and I love Red Dead Redemption
It's a good pairing - Smith's vocal carries real gravitas and the band convincingly whip up clouds of dust and sweat behind him. Guitarists Stu Mackenzie, Cook Craig, and Joey Walker do an especially fine job of creating atmosphere. Morricone would have been proud of their efforts. The story itself is harsh and powerful, telling a tale that's been heard before, but the music makes it sound fresh. It's perhaps not a vital piece in the kaleidoscopic puzzle that is the King Gizzard catalog, but it's good for a listen or two. Track Listing. Broderick Smith, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard.
