Song of the Day, September 8: Palace of Memory by Oysterband

OysterPalaceToday’s song is another fine track from Oysterband’s stellar 2014 album Diamonds On the Water. With a refreshed energy, the band presented a dozen wonderful songs filled with natural images and human heart. Palace of Memory is a standout, a bracing song of determination and independence in the face of time’s travails.

Beneath the green grass the stone
Beneath the pretty flesh the bone
In the palace of memory
You lie, you lie alone

Enjoy this wonderful song today.
