about

Kotorino Brooklyn, New York

WNYC says:
…Kotorino has one of the most unique and unusual sounds of any band, ever. Even in a music scene saturated with “chamber-pop” bands and odd instrumentation, Kotorino stands out with its use of all variety of winds, strings, and other musical gadgetry. The music itself is omnivorous in its source material, quite pretty, and downright haunting ... more

Track Name: Tin Horn
There's a little tin horn, oh oh oh oh oh
and it plays just for me,
there's a little tin horn, oh oh oh oh oh
and it plays constantly
I hear it, so softly, it makes me crazy but I know it's alright
I feel it, sharp silver, it fill the silence but I know I'm alive

Birds singing, can't hear the bells ringing
Angels dance, on a pin stuck right in to my ear

Didn't think it before, but I think it today
it's easy to fall, when you're getting carried away

There's a little angel, oh oh oh oh oh
and it sings just for me
There's a little angel, oh oh oh oh oh
and it sings constantly
I hear it, so closely, I can't see you 'cause the sky is too bright
there's singing and dancing, I can't see you 'cause the sky is too bright

Birds singing, can't hear the bells ringing
Angels dance, on a pin stuck right in to my ear

Didn't think it before, but I think it today
it's easy to fall, when you're getting carried away
Didn't think it before, but I think it today
it's easy to fall, when you're getting carried away
Track Name: Little Boat
I'd like to crawl inside a little boat
paddle till I cannot see the shore

the sun beats down, but I'll have my parasol
the rain beats down, but I'll have my parasol

standing there with your mysterious frown
Mona Lisa turned upside down
all our yesterdays
were once tomorrows
with you and me standing
in the middle oh

it's never like you think its gonna be
(4x)

things have kinda gotten away from me
I quit my job and moved back to the sea
I aint no clown
but I loves the circus
so settle down
and eat your peanuts son

we'll dance and sing
about those abstract things
where spoken words always fail
we'll come together again

when I finally have to leave this world
chop me up and feed me to the birds
a cloud of starlings
haunt the sky
outside your window
a blue crow cries

it's never like you think its gonna be
Track Name: Hawaii
I used to have plans
and places to be
I used to pick fights
with whoever I'd meet

lived my life
like a men's magazine
made people run
and dance how I pleased

all I was
got washed out to sea
when your eye
washed over me

now I don't make plans
or have places to be
don't pick no fights
just stare at the beach

on dry land
I crawl to my feet
take my hand
Hawaii

I write on my hand
the things I'm to do
get coffee and milk
and flowers for you

the seabirds they cry
and I'll feel the same way
you shade your eye
and look and look at the waves

pull the blanket of your flowers over
pull the blanket of your flowers over
pull the blanket of your flowers over
pull the blanket of your ocean over my shoulder

on dry land
I crawl to my feet
take my hand
Hawaii
Track Name: Sky's On Fire
Twinkle twinkle little star
you can't play poker in a house of cards
there's a sky in my eye and its on fire

I wish I may I wish I might
wish I had the mind to do what's right
there's a sky in my eye and its on fire

take a match to a paper doll
never come back, home no more
a fiddle bow on a rusty saw
tells the sad sad story of it all

If less is more, then I have it all
I'll fold it up and give it to you
when angels ring you have to take the call
if only they'd tell me where you are

draw a line in my brain
from a butterfly to a hurricane
there's a sky in my eye and its on fire
ash to dust and hell to pay
let the wind carry me away
there's a sky in my eye and its on fire
Track Name: Dangle Tango
I'm standing on a block of ice
waiting for it to slowly melt
I thought I'd take my own advice
but here I'm talking to myself

I never ever learned to dance
the cha cha or a slow tango
but I bet she's learn in France
with a man she does not know

la la la la ....

angels are circling my head
flying sweetly round and round
and I feel like ol' King Kong
as I try to swat them down

the only thing she left behind
was loneliness a dispair
wrapped up in a tiny note
with a lock of curly hair

if this is the way it's going to be
then I don't wanna be me anymore
if this is the way it has to be
then I don't have to be....

sometimes I really really want to
sometimes I really really don't
sometimes I forget what I could do
sometimes my feet are really cold

sometimes I really really want to
sometimes I really really don't
sometimes I forget what I should do
this time my feet are really cold

if this is the way it's going to be
then I don't wanna be me anymore
if this is the way it has to be
then I don't have to be....
Track Name: Oh My God
It doesn't matter
what you've done before
climb upon the ladder
this ballon is about to take off

when your world is upside down
and your love has gone
enjoy the silent silver sound
of the moon's most intimate song

one more step before I blow away
one more step before I blow away

Oh my God its beautiful
up and away we go
Oh my God its beautiful
but you are far below

one more step before I blow away
one more step before I blow away

Oh my God its beautiful
up and away we go
Oh my God its beautiful
but you are far below
Track Name: Broken Land
swallows fly, still have to land
they touch the ground on broken land
moved west Canarsie Indian
never to come back again
I wonder will I be like them
or bide my time and wait till when

you and me will take our time
so drink up the holiday wine
I'll take yours, and you can take mine
don't care what the're saying

step over the river and reach out your hand
pull me across to broken land
step over the river and reach out your hand
pull me across to broken land
are dreams are like diamonds buried in the sand
spread on the shores of broken land
are dreams are like the diamonds buried in the sand
spread on the shores of Coney Island
