about

"Maki's delicate, fading voice joins instrumentation that is lazy and grand, like people in a slow dance on a very hot day. She sounds confident and in control, lost voice be damned, and makes what may be her best album to date." - OTTAWA CITIZEN

"There's more to Maki's country-folk than meets the ear. Her voice carries hidden hurt and menace; an old-soul wise beyond her years even if she were decades older." - MONTREAL GAZETTE

Recorded and mixed in Tucson, Arizona on April 14 and 15, 2008 at the influential WaveLab Studio with members of Giant Sand, Jonathan
Richman, Arcade Fire, and Calexico, TWO SONG WEDDING is Kate Maki's fourth solo record. It is an introverted assortment of songs with an overall spaciousness and sincerity that progresses like the soundtrack to a short film or theatrical performance. Unforeseen circumstances (Kate's voice gradually disappeared), unfamiliar elements (95 degree desert heat), unusual surroundings, and unconventional musicians all played a part in the creation of this striking, captivating, unclassifiable record.

Track Name: Bloodshot & Blistered
Bloodshot & Blistered

Look out the window
It’s snowing again
Look out the window
It’s snowing again
Bloodshot and blistered
The work is never done
Bloodshot and blistered
The work is never done
oohoohoohooh
Tired of tired
Tired of you
Tired of tired
Tired of you
Pick up the pieces
You’re dragging again
Pick up the pieces
You’re dragging
oohoohoohooh
Look out the window
It’s snowing again
Look out the window
It’s snowing
Track Name: In Comes The Light
In Comes The Light

I want to feel like your love is enough
I want to feel like your love is enough
I want to feel
Someone once said that love’s all you need
Someone once said that love’s all you need
I don’t believe
I want to fall like the leaves from the trees
I want to fall like the leaves from the trees
I want to fall
Someone once said you can’t have it all
Someone once said you can’t have it all
I don’t believe
In comes the light of the day to my eye
In comes the light of the day to my eye
I want the night
Track Name: From Below
From Below

I remember what I heard
All the dirty looks
All the dirty words
Down from below
I crawled inside my head
Shut out all the lights
Now I don’t see
But I remember what I heard
The shots rang out
Something from below
Came ragging in
Oohoohooh
I crawled inside the can
It drank me down again
Now I don’t see
Blind
Must be blind
If I don’t see
Blind
Must be blind
If I don’t see
In front of me
Blind
Must be blind
If I don’t see
Track Name: Message Delivered
Message Delivered

We won’t do it
We won’t undo it
We’ll hold on to it
Send the army
Load the cannon
Fire the guns
You and I
Won’t go kneeling
In the fire
We’re still breathing
Bombs exploding
Walls crumbling
Hold on
Someone whispered
Message delivered
Get out
You and I
Won’t go kneeling
In the fire
We’re still breathing
We will fight
With cold from the ice
Rain from our eyes
Luck from the dice
Roll on
A marching band we don’t need
It’s our land we can seed
Hold on
Track Name: Rage In A Cage
Rage In A Cage

I have given I am gone
I’m in prison I was wrong
I have given I am gone
I am gone but not forgotten
I am old but I’m not rotten to the core
Through the window I was watching
Through the wind I heard them talking in their rhyme
Through the backyard I was running
Through the back I felt them gunning down my spine
Some will tell you I had reason
Broke the silence now the season has turned cold
In my rage I did riot
In this cage I sit quiet getting old
I have given I am gone
I’m in prison I was wrong
I have given I am gone
I am gone but not forgotten
I am old but I’m not rotten to the core
Track Name: Carved In Sand
Carved In Sand

Here I stand
A sinner and a saint
Carved in sand
A lover filled with hate
Watch the fire rise in the rain
Lost in space
Running on the ground
Miscalculate
Bury what is found
Watch tomorrow fall today
The flowers bloom
When the air is frozen
By the light of the moon
Track Name: Rip Out The Moon
Rip Out The Moon

Cut off my tongue
Burn out my eyes
Steal my breath
Drink my blood
Rip out my heart
Home sweet home
Cut down the trees
Burn out the sun
Steal the wind
Drink the rain
Rip out the moon
Home sweet home
Home sweet home
Home sweet home
Home sweet home
Track Name: Upon A Time
Upon A Time

Once I was in love
With someone from above
Above the clouds
Beneath the stars
Beyond the sun
Once I walked the line
One step behind
Behind the eyes
Beneath the skin
Upon the tongue
Once I heard a ghost
Speak words that matter most
Most of us ignore
What we all assume
Once I wanted more
From someone I adore
A door pushed open
Into an empty room
Once I had a gun
Pointed at the one
The one, the only
Me, myself and I
Once I had a heart
Broken apart
A part taken
And lost to the sky
Track Name: Dig You A Grave
Dig You A Grave

When the hours give away to the day
You belong to the night
When your eyes give away what your face
Is trying to hide
They’ll know
They’ll take you away
Dig you a grave
And they’ll put you back into the ground
They’ll put you back into the ground
When the stars disappear into dust
You belong to the sky
When the words disappear from the truth
You are trying to find
They’ll know
They’ll take you away
Dig you a grave
And they’ll put you back into the ground
They’ll put you back into the ground
They’ll put you back into the ground
You’ll run, you’ll escape
They’ll chase and they’ll find you in time
There’s a place you’ll be safe
In the back, way back in your mind
Track Name: Crossfire
Crossfire

Caught in the crossfire
Held on to barbed wire
Then I cut myself and had to let it go
Out on the highway
Should I go should I stay
Frozen in the hour of our time
If you had been grateful
If I had been faithful
If we had been awake
In some ways I’m over
In some ways I’m under
But always up above you hang around
