Dust to Dust

I am just digging into the Civil Wars newest offering. I sincerely hope that it will not be their last. The drama surrounding the status of their group indicates that at this point it could go either way.

My husband actually highlighted this particular track for me as it is his favorite on the album. It is a beautiful and subtle song. There is a fabulous You Tube video about the making of Dust to Dust in which JP talks about how he had to fight his natural inclination to have a building climax in a song but rather stay on an even keel and keep it level. For this song, it was a good decision. Their voices create all the tension and the beauty that is needed.

Have a wonderful day.
