about

Lobo Marino Richmond, Virginia

Lobo Marino, a Richmond-based duo whose elegantly eerie chant-like intones soar over drone-vibing world-fused folk music built primarily on harmonium, bass drum and other various instruments.

Named after the enormous Pacific Sea Lion, they draw from a rich palette of international influences. Their infectious hooks and intoxicating vocals are both hypnotically spiritual and deeply soulful.

Track Name: Celebrate (mountain version)
The time has come for us to celebrate
With all we are we can not hesitate
to raise the ruined earth through the air up to the sky
lay down your swords and wait for rain

The time has come for us to celebrate
With all we are we can not hesitate
to love always and to appreciate
the light, the darkness and the sun

The time has come for us to celebrate
With all we are we can not hesitate
Track Name: Awake
Awake, awake

The empty climbed upon the hillside and filled their mouths with water, from the creeks of others, until it dried away.

The empire stacked their stones and iron upon the grass the trees bent, broke from the pressure, then couldn't grow at all.

And we said,
"Hey, we're all standing in the same sunlight"

Will we draw our lines upon the earth, and trace the shadows of our shade
seeking power and Dominion, if turned around then we would see

That we're all standing in the same sunlight
where we cannot see each other as divided
we're all standing in the same sunlight

and we'll Listen, Listen, Listen
Listen the grass it moves, up through the cracks it grows
Listen the rain will fall
Listen the creeks will swell

and we'll Listen, Listen, Listen
Track Name: When the Waters Rise
How's it gonna be when the waters rise?
Driftwood ocean that never dries.
How's it gonna be when they rise?

The waves keep crashing and you take your time.
How's it gonna be when they rise?
Are you gonna stand out in the tide and watch it wash over your life?

How's it gonna be when the waters rise?

wade on home.
wade on home.
Track Name: Forest in the Kiln
Don't say sorry, don't say sorry for your loss
Don't say sorry, for what have I really lost?

Are we strangers in this land?
Passing like the setting sun, and when the dark sets in
our fire will rise again

So don't say sorry, don't say sorry for your loss

It's like waking up to fond you're not alone
As the people reconcile their buried wrongs
Its alarming how the mirror clears as visions clash
and reflects back what I knew, that really I am you

You say om nama shivia, like you were in transition
So when your crying for that change
Recognize that we are forest in the kiln
and the water can be lost
how the poison often spills, when the mountains turn to dust.
Track Name: The Loon
The Loon, sits lightly on a still lake
The sky, reflects constellations on the loon's back
and the cedar stretches to the light
Wind on the tips of the branches tremble in the night

The most common life is full of beautiful things
Just open your eyes and you will see it
Peace is within you, it never leaves.
Just open your mind and you will find it.
Track Name: Fear Not Creation
Fear not creation

Breath into action, cast a reflection, not just direction

Are you hiding your tunnels like a head in the sand.
Echoing through cambers of constant sound
still the reverberation has space between
until you become the silence itself, your own true self.
Track Name: Honeysuckle, Bittersweet
Your heart is overgrown
bound to the greed
its braided up the spine
honeysuckle, bittersweet

Climbing up, pulling down

Remediate your mind
It's dark beneath
turn up the soil now
let it breath

Tunnel down, pull it up
Climbing up, pulling down

Pressed down the crop splits from the ground with wind now echoing
The trampled and the weary ones shall then be released
To think that they had buried us forgetting we are seeds
cracked through the light has taken root, rising to find relief
Track Name: The Loon (reprise)
The most common life is full of beautiful things
Just open your eyes and you will see it
Peace is within you, it never leaves.
Just open your mind and you will find it.
Track Name: Ballad of the Coydogs
Coydog den
coydog den

How do you stay warm?

Followed hallow paw prints through the snow and through the mud
Took me to your shelter of metal to rust
You've been hiding in the shadows, stomping ivy into trails of string

When you howl, do you howl to stay calm?

How do you stay warm?
Track Name: Those Who Persecute
Pray for those who persecute

Show me how to use my voice
Show me how to use my power
