Unsung Song Heroes
"And I have always taken much more than I have given back/ and as a matter of fact I've given nothing up..."
David Lowery's masterpiece. Sparse and contemplative. The tortoise conquering the hare. Proof positive that playing slowly is at least as much of a talent as playing fast. From the first exchange of brushes on skins with languid string-bent guitar, to the closing rapid-fire, strum 'n strings crescendo, every detail of this song is perfect. Enjoy.
