Watch The Light Fade
Painterly washes of darkling country torch, phials of pale blue sound. Pedal steel and ringing piano echo through the empty rooms of this deserted house. A battered guitar lies on the cold bed. A familiar, lonely street during an autumn night, your words trapped and suspended in the clear, chilled air of winter. A voice that can trill like Stevie Nicks or Tim Buckley but is weighed down by sorrows and wisdom, heavy like Townes Van Zandt or Mike Johnson. Watch The Light Fade is reminiscent of the epic, biblical sweep and tear-stained sheets of Nocturama-era Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and is, thusly, indispensable.
