captaindown:

Attempting to decipher the apparent latin in the track featured in the teaser for “Soused”. All I was able to find (thanks to google) was that Scott appears to be saying “custodiant migramus” in the first bit, which would make sense following the english part that says “keep moving on”.

Lifting from the wiktionary, “custodiant” is the “third-person plural present active subjunctive of custōdiō”. Custodio roughly meaning “guard”, “guardian” or “keeper”. “Migramus” is the “first-person plural present active indicative of migrō”, which is related to migration or departing. (Forgive me if I’m screwing the languages up, but you get the rough idea)

I however have no idea where to start with the rest of it. Hopefully some latin expert (if that’s what it is) will step up and decipher the rest.

Calling all Latin experts!

Here is a cool picture of Scott and Sunn O))). I am way late to the game with this one but consider it another opportunity to reflect on how cool it would be if these guys toured…

SOUSED

I am VERY excited about this trailer for Scott Walker and Sunn O)))’s new project.

I have been distracted/in transit the last couple months and have irresponsibly let this tumblr fall by the wayside during this rare period of actual Scott news. Sorry about that, but nonetheless I am VERY excited about this record and I hope you are too.

I mean, maybe it’s not the dance record we’ve all been waiting for but… well, maybe it is. Soused!

Climate of Hunter by Scott Walker

The song was Blanket Roll Blues

He was a light golden colour and he had all the equipment, the tragic mouth and misted eyes and fluttery lashes, the thin hands and soft hair, and he never managed more than a small sad smile. When he sang, his hands went up in front of his grieving face and, delicately, his body curled up like a lettuce leaf.
