Calexico and Iron & Wine, “Father Mountain) from Years to Burn (2019):
I picked this song because: I don’t know why “read the writing on the wall / braced each other for the fall / there’s only one way off the mountain after all” smacked me right in the heart, but it did.
Calexico and Iron & Wine have that effect, though, separately and together. I still have several love stories I want to write based on/inspired by their last record together (In the Reins, 2005), so I have high hopes for this one as well
(Are we back? Am I? Maybe. We’ll see.)
