Shakey Graves - Dearly Departed feat. Esmé Patterson
When I first heard this song, it felt like I was listening to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes for the first time again. The chemistry between Alejandro Rose-Garcia and Esmé Patterson is almost tangible. I like to think the couple from “Home” have fallen on hard times and tried to move on but couldn’t without putting it into one last song together. Their music is just as sweet but the words have taken a different form.
Shakey Graves hails from Austin, Texas and can be best described as a one-man alt blues pop singer/songwriter. Since that’s a mouthful just call him a genius and listen to his wonderful music.
