about

hoots & hellmouth Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

With music and lyrics that are both transportive, yet achingly familiar, Hoots and Hellmouth debut their third full-length album, Salt.

A full exploration of the band’s distinctive spectrum of soulful roots-rock, Salt brings the listener through a stream of songs that are earthy and ethereal, buoyant and tranquil, fluid and precise.

Track Name: Why Would You Not Want To Go There?
I’ve built such a fanciful kingdom in my head
Say don’t you want to go there?
Why would you not want to go there?

I’ve got greens in the garden and a freezer full of meat
A one trick pony with four left feet
A chapel in the apple orchard keeping at bay
Whatever’s hollering in the holler just a stone’s throw away from where…

I’ve built such a fanciful kingdom in my head
Say don’t you want to go there?
Why would you not want to go there?

With skins in the rafters of a patched up roof
A still in a clearing for the discerning of truth
Nine miles from nowhere, somewhere is home
Firmament, foundation and a place to rot my bones
When I’ve grown
Too old to live in my skin
Too big to keep it all in
Too holy for this world of sin
That I’ve been building

The dog’s in the parlor putting on a show
For the five little children sitting in a row
They talk a lot about things they should not yet know
It’s a slow, slow going…

I’ve built such a fanciful kingdom in my head
Say don’t you want to go there?
Why would you not want to go there?
