So this band. Man. If I could point to a particular musical act that I latched onto during the cataclysm that was last year, it was Land of Talk. Their album Cloak and Dagger is exquisite, and there’s a ton of songs I could point to and go “that helped me through a rough period.” I even borrowed a lyric for an essay about my life at the time. In short, beyond Jimmy Eat World’s Integrity Blues I can easily say this band helped me heal more than anything else.
After a few years off, they’ve come back with a new CD, Life After Youth, and this is the second single off of it. I like it! It too seems to be a perfect song for this point in my life.
