#403 The Staves – Facing West

It’s a while since we’ve picked the Staves as Song of the Day: today we correct that. ‘Facing West’ is perhaps the simplest and most beautiful track from their debut album Dead & Born & Grown. It’s also heartbreakingly sad, and who doesn’t love heartbreakingly sad songs? When last we heard The Staves were working on new material with Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, so there could be a whole lot more sad on album number two.
