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: Lost on the Bryan Ferry
Shipwrecked, all alone
No one to teach me
On my own

On another island
far away
miles away
Speak to me Sarah
Tell me what's
in a name
Tell me how to lose
all the pain
all the shame
On another island
far away
miles away

I've got nothing left to lose
Track Name: Sun (From Underneath the Lake)
Oh, in case you didn't know
You will take the train and I will take the road
Oh, in case you didn't know, you will take the ice
and I will take the snow
Sun from underneath the lake
Cuts your girl in half, you'll love her more next week
You'll love her more next week

Oh, in case you didn't know, you will take the plane and I will take the road
Oh, in case you didn't know, you will take the ice
and I will take the snow
Sun from underneath the lake
Cuts your girl in half, you'll love her more next week
You'll love her more next week

Yeah you take the road
Oh, in case you didn't know
You will take the train and I will take the road
Oh, in case you didn't know, you will take the ice
and I will take the snow
Track Name: Barbershop
Movin' on up
I'm movin' on up
I'm moving back down

When I was young my mom loved David Bowie
So my first haircut looked like David Bowie's
All the girls just loved me, I was only three
Come inside the barber shop
Come along with me

Going to the barber shop with you, oh baby, you oh baby

We can do your hair up like miss Norma Jean's
Come inside the barbershop come along with me

You look so good
Track Name: Thumbelina
You're always walking
You're always walking the other way
I climb up the tall hills to see you get by
to wave you goodbye, oh my love goodbye.

You're always talking
You only talk to the rain and the clouds
They never talk to you, I'll see you go down
See you go down, not so loud or proud.

Now you're living with the moles.
After swimming with the toads.
'Cuz your lilly pad wasn't strong enough
to hold you up
What bad luck, what bad luck.

Thumbelina, where are you hiding
in the grass so long?
Been trying to find you, before the sun sets
before I have to go home.
Go home.

So
close
to catching you
Track Name: Emit
All the pieces of the sky
they're all puzzled as to why
they keep you locked so air tight
when you show no sign of life

Painting grass on all the walls
walking up to catch your call
as the bar drops I just fall
heading straight towards damnation

Call me from the moon
and tell me you'll come down soon
I've been trying to get loose
I've been trying just to do this for you

Clock Ticks
Eventually
It's going fast
time is of the essence you gotta make it last
Track Name: Fireflies
Walking through the frosted fields with my tripping friend
He runs until he loses all his oxygen,
and dropping all my contraband
as he turns into a policeman

I see the bright lights up ahead
That's just my friend, heading in
to where the park begins,
and those lights are only fireflies surrounding me.

Fireflies!
Woah.

Fireflies, woah.
Fireflies, watch out.
In the winter.
