about

AKUDAMA Brooklyn, New York

One day, a guava made love to a banana, and an avocado was born. Upon the avocado's first attempt at rolling, it was squashed. With the cracking of its pit came the most magnificent sound, so fiercely exasperating that it caused the banana to kill the guava, make a boat out of it, and sail to America to start a rock band called Acucumba... which sounds strikingly similar to "AKUDAMA". ... more

Track Name: Marzipan Man
I'm a vacuous man, I'm made of marzipan
I don't know how I stand
I don't know how I stand

Done

I'll steal this plane and crash it down
Cuz it's the fastest thing around
Well I was on my way down
And with a mind of broken glass
I know it's never meant to last
Oh marzipan,
How do you stand?

Such a weird feeling
When you know that you're make believe
You've got no culture
When you know that nothing suits ya

And with a tiny heart of gold
You lead me up and drink my soul
Oh marzipan,
How do I stand?

Such a weird feeling
When you know that you're make believe
You've got no culture
When you know that nothing suits ya
When you know you've got no future

Let's take a vacation from love
Let's take a vacation
Track Name: Rose Colored Glasses
I'm on top of the world again
In a Mercedes-Benz
Left my rose-colored glasses
on the white picket fence

So what time should I pick you up?
And where would you like to go?
I'ma feelin' so wonderful
Wanna go where the wind blows

I must confess that I'd be the best lover you've ever known
La la la la la la la la
Di di do do do do
Fa fa fa fa fa la la la
Di di ba ba ba boh wowoah

I must confess that I'd be the best lover you've ever know
And of this, yes I'm sure

You'll dream about me at night
And baby that's alright
You'll dream about me at night
And you know that that's alright
Yes I feel the same way too
Yes I feel the same way too
Ooooo, yes I do.
Track Name: Turtle Tan
I'm right behind the wall
Climb up, climb up, climb up
I'm right behind the wall
Climb
You can be anywhere you want to

Smell the air
Walk the rope, I'm gonna turn the light on
Feel the air
Scale the wall, I'm gonna turn the light on
I'm gonna turn your light on

Almost to the top
Further from the water

Turtle is tanning alone
Track Name: Everywhere At Once
Hatching out of a witch's egg
Growing up could never come too soon
Hatching out of a witch's egg
Stare into my father's eyes
What's the world and why am I white?
Why does the sky turn black at night?
Hatching out of a witch's egg

How can I be everywhere at one time?
Tell me how can I be everywhere,
everywhere at once

Pulling off the Sphinx's nose
Bleeding in my guava boat

Take me to the shore on time
Take me to the shore on time
Make it to the shore on time
Make it to the shore on time
