Michael McArthur's Intimate 'Lightning Nights'

I'm always jealous of vocalists with impressive falsettos. As someone whose vocal range runs halfway between a baritone and a bass, people that can hit those high notes get my serious respect. Minus Justin Vernon, soaring falsettos aren't something we hear too often in folk. Passenger sings in an upper register, but he's just a counter-tenor. Florida folkster Michael McArthur is one of folk's new great falsettos.

We're premiering a live take of McArthur's "Lightning Nights," a gorgeous bit of alternative country-folk. Playing in an intimate outdoor setting -- that may seem like an oxymoron, but when you hear the performance and see the set-up, you'll know why it isn't -- Michael McArthur's gorgeous voice and elegant folk guitar melodies wash you until they begin to envelop the listener. This is the perfect track for lying on the grass during the summer and looking up into the sky at those "Lightning Nights."
