Song of the Day 5/5/09: Blue Roses - I Am Leaving

 

Ahh, do you feel a certain sort of serenity in the air this week (and by air, I mean internet tubes)? Nicole set a relaxed tone plucking that new John Vanderslice track for the song of the day yesterday, and given my current mood I don't mind continuing the trend with "I am Leaving" by Blue Roses. Part sweet, part melancholic and colored by an overarching calm, this track takes fingerpicking folk and uses an appropriately subdued synthesizer backing - and, well, meltingly exquisite harmonies - to elevate it to a divine place. Click play and close your eyes - though the lyrics aren't completely carefree, I swear you'll feel your body get lighter.

- Phillip Taylor-Parker
