Listen: Rob Mazurek and Emmett Kelly – Back to the Ocean, Back to the Sea

“Back to the Ocean, Back to the Sea” is one of the best opening tracks on any album we’ve heard this decade—a surreal wonder that lingers in the ecotone between singer/songwriter confessionals and noisy abstraction, suggesting movement in either direction. Rob Mazurek and Emmett Kelly’s Alien Flower Sutra remains as gripping as the day it was released in 2016. Look for this pairing at Big Ears 2019, and get a glimpse with this beautiful animated video.
