MP3: Ben Sollee & Daniel Martin Moore – “Something, Somewhere, Sometime” from Dear Companion, due February 16 on Sub Pop.
By the time you realize how good this song is, it’s over. So you have to play it again. And maybe even one more time. It starts out simple with an acoustic guitar and Appalachian harmonies, but it keeps building and driving and getting better. And then it stops. Two and a half minutes. Leaves you wanting to hear more.
Produced by My Morning Jacket‘s Jim James (a/k/a “Yim Yames” if you’re feeling ridiculous). And a portion of the proceeds from the album will benefit Appalachian Voices, an organization devoted to ending mountaintop removal. How about that!
