Song of the Week: Whetherman

Open the windows up wide, breathe in deeply the smell of the freshly cut grass, grab your Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker,  and put this song on LOUD. It's going to be a good day.

Speaking of this song, Nicholas Williams (aka Whetherman) writes:
'Birch Tree' is about accepting your own karma for good and for bad, and finding solace in certain places that remind you of what has real substantial value to you in order to gain insight from balance. It's about not being shallow with people who are close to you, and allowing yourself to understand that what goes around will come around, including love, heartache, and happiness. In this case, there is a metaphor with the track title. A birch tree is known as a symbol of renewal and growth, its easy and eager ability to repopulate areas damaged by forest fires or clearings show it's ability to adapt. "The birch tree asks us to take root in new soils and light our lives with the majesty of our very presence." (via bandcamp)

Whetherman's newest album, Streams & Pastures was released in March of this year and is delicately, calmly and perfectly soundtracking these ever increasing light filled days.
