All The Dead Sailors Slowly Slipping To Sleep

Longing for summer, living through winter. This song suits both feelings.

I’m perpetually amazed by songs. Just when you think you’ve heard all the melodies, meters, and metaphors, a song like this pops out of a guy sounding both brand-new and like its existed all along.

This is theĀ  effortless sound of the careful application of craft.

Hi, Kevin. We in the East Bay love you. Still.

This reminds me of Al Stewart. [I know you're in there, you're just out of sight . . . Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight.] Al Stewart, one of the tiny multicolored happy streams running through my otherwise polluted blood.

Keep it up.
