Strategies For the Stranded

Pattern 25

Almost cocktail-touched grooves smooth out in waves, moving like an ocean, but thicker. Barbara Trentalange’s vocals float over the chords effortlessly and gracefully, soft as silk, deep as snow. The bass pushes out an almost dub rhythm, underneath and growling catlike against the shimmer of guitars. A slow waltz flashback, a shadowed dream of perfect days. Spyglass moves like a sad dance, but so beautiful in the turns that you have to smile, sigh, and keep dancing.
