King of Flesh and Bone by saulgoodman

King of Flesh and Bone is an indie rock song with introspective lyrics about the impulse to tear down. It’s from saulgoodman’s band Tangemeenie, who previously appeared here for underwater caves, a mellow atmospheric song. I like their genre-hopping – they’ll be here again.
