Song of Summer #4: Sweet Harmony
The Del Marquis-helmed "supergroup" Slow Knights put out a truly flawless album in the spring. If you didn't get it, rush. Cosmos is an amazing collection of songs and singers, including Bright Light Bright Light (aka Rod Thomas), among others. For the Sweet Harmony single, which features lead vocals by Bridget Barkan and Mykal Kilgore*, Rod did a tremendous remix that's by turns cascading (2:11) and - literally - stomping (4:24). It just blows me away every time.
This is how it feels it when I do you right.
*Last year Mykal did the amazing vocal on Feel It by Bright Light Bright Light.
