Track of the Day: Twain "Solar Pilgrim"


First brought to us by Big Thief, meet Twain, a music-maker that's been making his way across the internet the past month. His release Rare Feeling is out October 20 via our friends at Keeled Scales. "Solar Pilgrim" begins with melodic, meandering guitar riff before Mt. Davidson's quavering voice kicks in narrating a daydream. The build of the song follows a somnambulist's route--before you know it, percussion has kicked in, castanets, the gentle undertone of keys--as an entire dreamscape builds its way from the ground around us.
