This is just beautiful. I know Day & Night Digital had this a few weeks back, but I got the CD last week and just get lost in the brooding spendidness of this. Somehow, M. Ward always manages to have about two totally stunning tracks per album. I’m so distracted with this one that I haven’t properly taken in the rest, but it sounds really good.
Segue this into Everglade, the closing track on Antony And the Johnsons‘ newie and you’ll bliss out. Just listen to that orchestra soar! I have a playlist with just these two tracks. 2009 is shaping up very well indeed.
