The Icelandic composer is joined by two “ghost” pianists, making mysterious and memorable music at the Tiny Desk.
Nathaniel Rateliff sings with so much soul. You can just feel his music and the passion that he puts into it. It’s this passion and heart behind his performances that remind me so much of Glen Hansard.
Glen Hansard, you all, Glen Hansard. Such a powerful and emotional singer-songwriter.
A tale of Beginnings, and of New Beginnings. Letters – Correspondence – between young lovers, separated by the sea. The Girl, a whaler’s daughter, drifting at the whims of her ship’s captain. The Boy, and orphan, hand to the plow and building a tree house for her return. For their home. It is their history. It is their future. Who knows… maybe you’ll find your own [non]fiction in theirs.

I’m kind of embarrassed by how many times I’ve listened to this track (and the entire EP). Give it a spin.
Here’s a link to the original that just might be better than the track that landed on the album.
Coheed and Cambria are back! I’m pretty excited for their new album and concept. And if the album is anything like this track, we’re all going to be blown away.
