Whether it's playing for two people, or for two hundred people, Atlas and the Astronaut leaves everything on stage with each
performance. Emerging as one of the must-see bands in the Portland area, Atlas and the Astronaut composes unabashedly selfish post-rock songs with a tinge of punk rock attitude....more
It was born into a child like vibrancy. Impregnated with the ocean shimmering. A mother to a babe of blues and greens, smitten in the eyes of a teen.
A mother not ready to carry the Beast, but that's what the traveling Man gave her between the sheets.
A haunting growth from nine months between a scheduled trip to a new form of celibacy. And the fire in her chest suffocating the life she deserves cut short from the pretense.
A mother ready and willing to carry the Beast, yet the Man threatens to end her life with ease.
A trip to safety coming sooner than expected, to the corner of the flight she retreated. Ismaros - a father - fearing for his wife, accused the wrong demon on board and took its life.
Tension and water breaking - hyperventilating.
As the sweat runs down her brow, she's gotta push from the hips. Push, push from the hips. Biting down on her lip. With a subtle drip of blood running down her chin. She's letting the love of the Beast in.
Erupting from the mother's hips, enter the Sun Beast, preaching stories didactic.
Flies move at six frames per second. Stop-motion fragmentation.
With the knees giving out to the flow of failing anti-bodies.
