Balmorhea - Settler

Somedays you don't want any words, just music. Somedays you just want a soundtrack for your everyday life. This is it. I spent yesterday walking around snowy, slushy, Boston with this on repeat. It is amazing how the snow flakes fall in time to this song and when you are people watching from the coffee shop window the people move to the beat of the music. Basically I was distracted from real work by this song all day long.

This Austin, TX band pronounced Bal-moor-ay is made up of five people playing guitar, piano, melodica, banjo, violin, cello, and the double bass. They have toured the US 3 times and will be playing at this year's SXSW. You can listen to their stuff from their new album on their myspace page. I urge you to listen to the whole song, when it sounds over, it's not, thats part of the beauty. You will know you are near the end when you hear the...well I will let the ending be a surprise for you (around the 5:10 min mark). Enjoy!
