Lilacs blossom just as sweet
Now my heart is shattered.
If I bowled it down the street,
Who's to say it mattered?
If there's one that rode away
What would I be missing?
Lips that taste of tears, they say,
Are the best for kissing.
Eyes that watch the morning star
Seem a little brighter;
Arms held out to darkness are
Shall I bar the strolling guest,
Bind my brow with willow,
When, they say, the empty breast
Is the softer pillow?
That a heart falls tinkling down,
Never think it ceases.
Every likely lad in town
Gathers up the pieces.
If there's one gone whistling by
Would I let it grieve me?
Let him wonder if I lie;
Let him half believe me.

I'm always checking out the new folk music appearing on Bandcamp, but I must admit, I don't buy that much of it. For better or for worse, the new stuff always bumps up against the Pink Moon test. That is, I could spend the next 30 minutes of my time just listening to Nick Drake again instead. I always find myself wondering: Will this new album reach me with the same depth of emotion? Will it gradually reveal more and more, and bring me back to listen to it dozens, hundreds of times? Will it create a sonic identity that is entirely its own, a place to be?
In the case of The Weather Station, the answer is yes, yes, yes! This music manages that illusion of complicity, that it's just you and them sharing this moment, and the rest of the world be damned. 20 listens in, and I'm still discovering its secrets. This one's a keeper. Gio Makyo
