This band is seriously fucking me up, I'm having dreams about this music. I've sat here for the better part of an hour and a half now listening to this same song over and over, and I keep hearing new things on each successive listen. I have not been this completely taken and consumed by music since I discovered Jeff Buckley. You have to download this song and listen to it in its entirety. It's got this amazing and haunting beauty, it makes you calm and takes you flying over someplace magical, then builds into this insane dirge halfway through that careens into this equally beautiful and yearning wail.

So many people on my friends list will hear this song and practically shit themselves it's so good. I am absolutely fucking amazed, I cannot get enough of it. This song is the soundtrack for shedding your skin, letting go of your fear, jumping fearlessly into a frightening unknown. Download and listen to it right now, and if you get what I'm saying please post a reply. If you don't get it, then don't break my heart right now with your cold indifference. I'm in an almost perfect place with something very precious to me, I hope others can follow. michaelnolan once described Jennifer Nettles' song "Story Of Your Bones" as a window to himself after I had him listen to it for the first time, this song is mine.
