Meg Baird “Ashes, Ashes” – wordless glory

Ashes, Ashes‘ is the new single from Mag Baird’s upcoming album ‘Furling‘, which will be released on January 27th on Drag City.  It’s as dreamy and otherworldly as you might expect from the frontwoman of Espers, and there are more than a few hints of that band in this “song without words, tree without leaves”.  It is built more around pianos and subtle percussion, with Meg Baird’s ethereal vocals contributing a somewhat discordant mood to the piece.  It’s strange and lovely.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
