Brother's smile
Taking on its own
Identity
Only to then leave it behind

Foreign light in the afternoon

Held by what-be-nots
Stay until remembered
Here I'm standing
Ripped apart by albatross
Hanging by a thread

What's in a name?
What's in a name?

Down on the other side
I'm almost out of sight
Looking up to let go
Now I'm letting go
Now I'm letting go
Now I'm letting go

Let it go (Let him go)
Let it go (Let him go)
Let it go (Let him go)
Let it go (Let him go)

Sharon van Etten is a gem. I got introduced to her on 2010, and it's been a wonderful, if not always comfortable journey.

That's not an album cover; this song was released as a "single".  It was originally recorded for a documentary about Matt Furie - the creator of the Pepe The Frog meme.

What a great song from Maid. Loved the series and love SVE even more. Lovely song.
Particularly fond of the intro/beginning where the instrumentation does a fantastic job of establishing the great atmosphere of the song.   A solid song overall imo. 
Sometimes I wish I could give the transition a rating as well as the songs!  The move from Svefn g-englar into this was a perfect 10

What are you hearing that I'm not??
This could get me in the mood...
hmmm, I thought this was BRMC
Could have sworn this was BMClub…

She has to be one of the coolest people going right now.
Her wiki-bio made me appreciate the song more.

Now I want an emoji of that purple lipped, wild-eyed face on the cover.
post Covid 19 music. Like her !
Heard this a couple times now, my rating keeps climbing.  7 -> 8
Thanks for the new music.  A fine addition.
I think this is the first time I've ever heard SvE on here - she has some real gems in her catalogue - the more from her the merrier! 🙂
