Sight, smell, touch. These are all senses that can help remind us of fond memories, bringing us right back to the places and people we remember. But every now and then, you encounter music that evokes nostalgia in a way that no other vehicle can. There’s that magical moment when voices and instruments combine seamlessly in a way that isn’t just something you hear, it’s something you feel. It’s rare enough to encounter a song that gives you that feeling. But last night, I found an entire album! Shallow Bed is the latest album from Dry the River, an English folk-rock band who, in my mind, are absolute geniuses.
As if I wasn’t already head over heels for this band, they did a live concert. On a riverboat. In Amsterdam. Need I say more?
To top it off, I just found out that they’re coming to a cafe in Arlington, VA on May 19th. The bad news is that you can’t buy tickets in advance, so you better believe I will fight for a spot in that concert if I have to. What can I say, their music just gives me a lot of feelings!
