Insomniac Radio: I’m Just A Shadow
I’m an insomniac.
Been one for years. There are periods of time where I want to sleep but some level of executive dysfunction keeps my body from shutting down. I become too tired to write, read, or even think clearly. I usually go on image searches in a half-cognizant stupor, and sometimes I find stuff on the interwebs that is a little more video and a lot more audio.
Some of that stuff ends up being, well, good. Some of it is even great. I’ll stick something on repeat for hours or days while working on whatever I have to work on, using the familiarity of someone else’s created excellence to push my own forward.
And now I’ve decided to share some of what I’ve found. When something crops up and my waking mind thinks it’s cool, I’ll share it here. Spread the word.
I’m a sucker for haunting, haunted lyrics and tones. This song satisfies my need for such things, a gentle threat, the cool whisper of autumn seeping slow across your neck. This is beautiful and full of a strange hope, and it’s a song I find myself returning to when I need something to pick me up.
SHEL is an acronym for the four sister involved in the band – Sarah (vocals, bass, and fiddle), Hannah (vocals, accordion, and keys), Eva (lead vocals, guitar, banjo, cello, and mandolin), and Liza (percussion, djembe, and beatbox). You can find their website by clicking here, or seek them out on the Facebooks by clicking here, twitter over here, and Instagram by clicking here. If you’re like me and need more of their music, they also have an iTunes store that you can go to by clicking here. You can expect to see them pop up here again; I love their music.
