Song of the Day, February 8: Think Small by Tall Dwarfs
February 8, 2016 Leave a comment
Today’s song is the closer to Tall Dwarfs stunning album Fork Songs. The Kiwi duo are known for their found instruments, stark observations, and proto-lo-fi sound. While many of their tracks buzz with varying kinds of energy, some of their finest moments are almost folky. Think Small is such a track, a cautiously hopeful song about making the most of what we have. Edging into “that’s all we’ll get”, it sets up a nice tension, allowing the quiet sonic palette to draw it toward optimism.
Enjoy this lovely song today.
