Thick walls of sound are all the rage right now. Even when a band like Real Estate is coined as breezy, their music features layers and layers of texture. Slickpop and the surprise return of an uptempo shoegaze hybrid are ruling the scene-- so when a no-frills, low key folk song cuts through the musical masses like Moses parting the Red Sea, you may be in for something special. Folk rocker Sun Kil Moon
has accomplished that with his mournful and nostalgic track, "Sunshine in Chicago." Looking back on happier days performing over a decade ago and the realities of being older and a changing audience shouldn't make for such emotionally powerful music, but it does. We've got a free MP3 of the single for you below.
