Words: Devin Kelly
Five songs. Enough time to fry some eggs and brew a pot of coffee on Sunday morning. Enough time to snooze, off and on, before getting up for brunch. Enough time to regret things, or remember them, or merely dwell. Enough time to get ready for something.
- “Silent Signs” – DeYarmond Edison
- “Sonsick” – San Fermin
- “Stay Even” – Port St Willow
- “Lonesome Dreams” – Lord Huron
- “Ramona” – Night Beds
This Sunday’s five songs are growers. They’re relaxed and controlled, and most build into something. DeYarmond Edison’s “Silent Signs” is a closeted classic, an old Justin Vernon sparse folk ballad. San Fermin’s “Sonsick” is one of the most gorgeous, melodic songs of 2013, and a possible choice for song of the year. Port St Willow’s “Stay Even” deserves far more attention than it’s ever received, as does he, with his soulful, yearning voice and washy guitar strumming. Lord Huron’s “Lonesome Dreams” is a classic from their debut album, a driving, upbeat tune. And finally, Night Beds’ “Ramona” is a beautiful Southern alt-country gem from one of the most overlooked bands of the year. Enjoy.
