And still my shadow is waiting for you
like it always used to
Hanging around and looking behind me
so that you can find me
In the eastern light
On this week’s Top Tune, Tift Merritt accompanied by Sam Beam of Iron & Wine, delivers a gorgeous and haunting elegy to a failed relationship. It’s one of our faves on Merritt’s most recent album Stitch of the World which features the best of the best; Jay Bellerose on drums, Jennifer Condos on bass, Eric Heywood on pedal steel, and Marc Ribot on guitar.
“This album will be on many year-end lists come December” – Exclaim.
