This Is The Best Song. Ever.

Maybe this has happened to you before: Someone asks, "What is your favorite song right now?". I usually stand there and think for a minute before answering something along the lines of, "Uhm... I don't really have a favorite song at the moment. THERE ARE SO MANY GOOD ONES!" 

Well, for the past couple months this has not been the case.  

After the release of "22, A Million" by Bon Iver (which I have come to love), I once again became very entranced by the works of lead man Justin Vernon and performed my usual ritual of researching the artist more than the normal human could ever possibly think of doing.  

Upon doing so, I ran into one of Vernon's "side" projects. (He doesn't like calling them "side" projects - I know this because I'm weird, like I said). Aaaaaaanyways, I re-discovered Volcano Choir - a band that I had only briefly checked out a few years ago and which felt like a distant memory in the form of a few faint melodies. Specifically, I ran into the song for which this post is written on one of the hit-or-miss Apple Music weekly curated playlists and promptly became obsessed.

I have listened to this track countless times over the past couple months and it has inspired many new songwriting sessions and new melodies bouncing around my head.

I love it. I could sit here and talk all day about it but I'd rather you just have a listen for yourself. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
