There’s the sort of music where the instrumentation alone makes the track. You’re playing air drums while driving in your car; the people next to you are pointing and laughing. Then there’s the type where you’re sucked in with the emotional draw of the vocals; this is where you find artist Lily Taylor. Her new song has barely any instrumentation aside from very light touches that allow space for her vocals to draw you in. Those pipes are seductive, sucking you in second by second. Her new record, The Ride, will be released by Pour Le Corps on September 2nd.

Okay, so the name Eyes, Wings and Many Other Things might be a little much to handle, but man, this song’s pretty right on. If you press play on your stereo, and you expect it to pick up pace, I’ve got news for you, it’s not going to happen. This song mellowly creeps along for the entirety of its 4.5 minutes, but it’s a pretty remarkable listen. The pacing allows for the entrance of various sounds to be dressed atop the entire song, while lyrical pieces are thrown in from time to time. For me, it was hard not to be moved by the track. You should pick up their new Rural Pain LP from Pour Le Corps now, before everyone else catches on to these guys.
