Leaves on the Wind Vol 2: No Power In The 'Verse Can Stop Me
Five original songs inspired by the second five episodes of Firefly: 1. Goodnight Kiss (Ep. 6: Our Mrs. Reynolds) 2. The True Story of the Hero of Canton (Ep. 7: Jaynestown) 3. Miracle (Ep. 8: Out of Gas) 4. Open the Door (Ep. 9: Ariel) 5. Apples and Knives (Ep. 10: War Stories)
Here's Joss Whedon to tell you a little bit more about why the work that Equality Now does is so important.
The Fallen Stars, a Huntington Beach-based Americana band featuring husband-and-wife Bobbo Byrnes (vocals, guitar, mandolin) and Tracy Byrnes (vocals, bass) have been busy setting the series’ Old West-meets-cosmos mythology to music. The band has followed up 2013’s “Leaves On the Wind, Vol. 1: Still Flying” with the newly-released “Vol. 2: No Power in the ‘Verse Can Stop Me.”
Each song is based on an episode of “Firefly,” with episodes 6-10 celebrated on the new EP. It’s not surprising that every track is a gemstone, with the tender mandolin-anchored “Goodnight Kiss,” rollicking “Miracle” and wistful “Open the Door” among the tracks blending top-tier musical song craft and lyrical ties to Joss Whedon’s enduring tour de force.
