This is a song about Old Man Willow from Lord of the Rings, perhaps the most frightening part of Fellowship of the Ring. Enjoy the song, and thank you for listening!
The Repressions are so very honored to have won Best Original Song in the February Vegan Music Makers celebration, for their song “We Are the Strange Ones!”
Vegan Music Makers is a wonderful uplifting community founded in California by Geno Maurillo and Michael Blow. Find and follow the group on Facebook, and add these other artists to your playlist!
This means a lot, voted from a group of musical artists from all genres and walks of life, with the one common thread being a respect for animals and their freedom. Good company and very good music!
The Repressions had the loveliest of times singing their original song Followcat, and from the Tiny Desk followed the Tiny Repressions… See their debut in this video. This song is dedicated to Luna!
Fresh from the oven… follow The Repressions on Instagram, Facebook and Youtube for your daily fix of weird humor, music and artwork!
What can you do with the feeling when you know there is something you wanted but can never have? The deep, hard things, that seem unjust… a sense of loss for what cannot be… Can you bury or set free desire?
Allow- live acoustic performance at The Dolphin in Port Washington NY 1/31/20
This Friday is going to be very special… The Dolphin Bookshop has a magic that surrounds you before you realize it. The Repressions will play in the stage/ seating/cafe area, with a beautiful bookshop to the right, more books and toys to the left, original art and color all around… It is not just “one” kind of place, and therefore inspiring and imperceptibly comfortable. No cover charge and all ages are welcome… The music begins at 7pm!
Folk-punk is a term that we hear often to describe the band, and we say that makes as much sense as all of the the genres we jump to. We’ll be playing with cool cats Sam Rasiotis and JW Farrell next week, who both bring the noise and passion, and so The Repressions will be dedicating this set to the faster, rambunctious songs. Jump with us!
Do our instincts work against our growth? Why do we act out in wildness while we further ourselves from the natural world?
Tonight on Youtube we have a lyric video for the song “What’s To Be Expected of the Wild,” performed unplugged at Repressions’ Castle.
