"What's That Racket" is the second of two songs from our upcoming EP "Live at Farmtone" that are paired with a music video. The video was shot in a century old barn along with a few other undisclosed locations in rural Connecticut. Special thanks to Ty Morin of 179 Pictures (Collinsville, CT) for directing and filming, and to Floyd Kellogg of Casa de Warrenton (Hartford, CT) for mixing the song.



We spent the whole day
Stacking up our pillars
At last, at last
An intermission
A place to rest our heads

You just take for granted
All those mores that you rife
and I said
What's that racket
Shut the fuck up, just quit what yer askin'

I stoppped asking questions
Everytime I tried you always played forgetful
You might be kiddin' the rest of them
But you keep on failin' my test

I know I never say enough
But let's be fair
I took a hand in your predicaments
That you always made so clear
Just to get closer to you
Such a cold attitude

While you took for granted
All those mores that you rife
and I said
What's that racket
With yer tiskets and yer taskets it's enough to weave a basket with
Lets get closer now
Just a bit slower now

We spent the whole day
Stacking up
Our pillars
If you trade traditions
With your ambitions
Such a fallacy you'll live

You just take for granted
All those mores that you rife
and I said
What's that racket
