‘When The Subway Comes Above The Ground’- Leif Vollebekk

As the winter has begun to relent I’ve taken to putting on Leif Vollebekk’s magnificent new album, North Americana, each day and letting it play through a few times as I go about my business. It’s a wordy, literate record through and through, Vollebekk waxing warming, poetically and evocatively about subways, love, countrysides and changing seasons over dusty, shuffling melodies. ‘When The Subway Comes Above The Ground,’ an extended ode to travel, friendship, love and good times that may never be repeated but are forever longed for (oh, and a bit about Jeff Buckley, too), has been my favorite song on this lovely album since my first listen, and so that’s what you’ll find below. It’s a good one, kids.

North Americana will hopefully see release here in America shortly. It will be worth the wait, don’t you worry. Head on over to Soundcloud and listen to a few tracks from the album while you wait. Enjoy.

(Thanks, Megan!)

    Really good.
    I can hear the screeching as the subway turns the corners, too…
