Finally Giving In to Elvis Perkins

After receiving multiple recommendations of Elvis Perkins “Ash Wednesday” and somehow never being convinced by the 35 second previews on iTunes, I was finally in just the right mood for it and now I just can’t stop listening. It may be elegiac in some of its lyrics and imagery, but it’s not a downer: the overall feeling is one of hope. It’s got a real twangy folky feel to it, lots of acoustic guitar strumming with crooning vocals on top.

Next to the new Travis, which I canNOT stop listening to over and over and over again, it’s probably my most played music in May.
