The Witches Ep is the long awaited second record from female fronted London four-piece, DEAF YETi.

Three tracks reference everything from the dark gospel of Sister Rosetta Tharpe and delta blues of Howlin' Wolf; through Patti Smith's spiritual hard edge and The Stooges raw power; to the noise-art of Sonic Youth and heavy bass riffs of more contemporary bands, including The Black Keys, Cat Power, Deap Vally, Savages and The Kills.

Strap on your .44 and meet us in the garage.

Track Name: Witches
there’s a beat in the sky
and the beat goes bang bang boom
over tower and cactus
and the cool, green ground beneath us

topping tree and ant
far fell the witching hour
above the beast and people
and the cool, green ground we kneel to

there’s a beat in my head
and the beat goes thump thump thump
‘mid my dream of madness
and the cool green ground beneath us

running through our blood
dance for the witching hour
dance for the beast and people
on the cool, green ground we kneel to

oh no call me
don't commit
your name to any
other lips
you're guilty out
you're cool hand true
of falling me
in love with you
he’ll be baby of the world
healing ice age heat wave
teaching the heathen to behave
drowning laughing birds
in autumn’s foil leaves
flying over forest
through thunder golden breeze
bandaging the alley
murder, dust and storm
empty stage and cannon
window on a form
hands in saxon gravestones
skin-tight net for wasting
crescent open well
Track Name: Albino
in the summer
in the shade
watching shadows
of the day
I lIke your lemur
I like your polecat
tougher leaner
gin and advocat


in the summer
in the dusk
beating bodies
hot for love
I like your vulture
I like your mean dog
black sand butcher
vodka squashed frog


in the summer
in the night
battered bladders
car headlights
I like your voodoo
I like your eye eye
secrets held hard
ouzo tie-die
