Track of the Week at Redline Roots

(via www.redlineroots.com)

You can head over to Duncan Arsenault’s musical bloggings page to read up on the whole story behind this song, but fair warning, I broke down into tears and sobbed like a baby when I did. Hint: its about his dead dog. Dude, you just ripped my heart out.

Featuring a slew of his super talented pals (including Jeremy and Brooks from the super groovy The Curtis Mayflower), this is a great tune with a lot of heart and that Springsteen-esque hollow harmonica thing going on. It adds to the sense of yearning and longing for something lost.

Textures and building is all I can say. Picking of the dobro, the keys, the vocals and harmonies. Its just a giant, wonderful, pile of excellently recorded and played parts.

Very cool stuff here. The song very successfully represents this space inbetween emotions. Bittersweet. You can’t really call it a sad song or a happy song, it just kind of is there for the consumption. And consume I shall.

Cheers to Duncan Arsenault for pulling this tune together. Great stuff as always.

Thank you Redline Roots! – Duncan and Craig
