Full of reflections on a tough year and hope for what’s to come in the new one, the cold, beautiful waltz of ‘Brightly Above’ by Prairie Empire pretty well captures what this time of the year is all about. I haven’t been able to stop listening to it the last few days, and I don’t imagine that’s going to change anytime soon. This, kids, is a lovely little tune.
Prairie Empire just released a holiday EP, Auld Lang Syne, which you can grab for free over on Bandcamp. Enjoy.
Bonus: In the spirit of winter, and because it’s a wonderful little song from their absolutely terrific self-titled debut album, here’s ‘Snow.’
