The Trial - Pink Floyd / Heraclitus - Johannes Moreelse
(this was requested by a fabulous anon, hopefully you like it! Heraclitus was known as “the weeping philosopher” and I thought that crying over the globe was a fitting match for the world-weary nature of the persona of the song).
Brooklyn band She Keeps Bees does bewitching, gloomy, blues tinged and baroque imbued rock music so well. Their latest single Owl, off excellent current album Eight Houses, is a delightful, dusky treat with backing vocals by the amazing Sharon Van Etten. It’s as if Lana Del Rey, Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond, and Anna Calvi met in a crossroad and jammed together. She Keeps Bees is currently touring in Europe, and they’ve released an odd but captivating video for the song.
