The Album Leaf: Over The Pond

 
As I listened to The Album Leaf song, "Over The Pond", for the second time, the icy piano notes began to fall into the pond water, the water freezing over... a winter black. As if the piano, perhaps a grand piano, was nestled into a snowdrift, it's ivory words skating over a shining, black Steinway pond. This song somehow recalls a nighttime winterscape, not unlike some songs of the band, The Walkmen. Where Walkmen songs are fit for noisy, streetlamp-lit, January city streets, The Album Leaf skate a more pastoral course, although one seen through the eyes of outsiders, I believe.
