Today’s song is Summer At the Empty Playground II by the Watchman. When Ad van Meurs returned to his folk roots, he created the Watchman persona for his debut recording. With his distinctive vocals and strong acoustic playing, he created an unusual folky gem. One of the standout tracks, Playground is a meditation on nostalgia. Blending adult perception with childhood recollections, he ponders the power — and risks — of memory. Meurs adds some wonderful guitar fills, creating a darkly reflective mood.
Enjoy this compelling song today.
