Receding Choir

by Brian Kelly

The songs are about loss but a colored-in loss: after it’s become memory, and pain turns gold. The sound of the music is resonant of distance, the sound of bells dying off at sea.

Bury me Michael please
with garlands, trophies
Paris in trees
Lay me among the weeds
pour dust on the water
somewhere at sea

On the day you were born
sky opened wide
Out of the storm
where will you hide?

Michael, take me out of the water
give me something I can breathe
let the night calm come over me
let the moon lie on the sea
let my heart start to heave over the parts
to heal Nancy, Philip, Sara, Bianca, Louise
Edward, Vicky, Charles, William & Mary
Ben, Cindy, Chad, Alex & Brad
Steven, Pat, Keith

On the day you were born
sky opened wide
Out of the storm
where will you hide?

Hurry Michael please
pick up the phone, I’m ready to leave
indeed it’s amazing
the seas are flaming
the sun is flaying
we’re free to choose what we’ve never seen

On the day you were born
sky opened wide
Out of the storm
where will you hide?

Kevin Teare – 12/31/05

On the way up we got to listen to Receding Choir all the way
through and later, between errands I listened some more. There's a bunch of interesting texture all over the place, sonically speaking. We really enjoyed it. Tell me there's a video of "Flag". This should be on heavy rotation on Fuse or something. I’m the human barometer of rock and I tell you emphatically that this is what is current. I know it’s easy for me to say but it really deserves to be heard. The two others that really stick out for me are the title track and 3 Day Blood Dried Violet.
All three of these have sublime melodies.

Jennifer Willis - 11/14/05

I received Brian Kelly’s new CD in the mail today.
It's beautiful. The songwriting is profound. I had it in my CD player when I picked my 16 year old son up from school today and he wanted to know what it was. He totally digs it. What I have always loved about Brian Kelly’s work is the electrifying combination of fragility and power. His desire to confront the truth is obvious. His wisdom is hard-earned.


Wonderfully disrupts and makes you listen
No other band or singer matches this unique sound in its vulnerability, honesty, and creative intelligence. To me, it sounds like the songs are from an era that has never been there, but that is always present. Timeless - One of the best albums I ever listened to. "What's Sammy mean to me" and "Stand in the light" are songs that can change your life. No matter where you are and how fast and insignificant things around you seem to be - this voice and those lyrics make you feel.
