It never rains, but it pours, eh? The last few months I’ve struggled to think of what song to pick for this segment. Now we’ve got new songs from Chvrches and Meg Myers I could feature… but lately I’ve been listening to the Balconies a whole lot, so I decided to go with them instead.
Nothing brought this on. I’ve been listening to this band for years. In the fact they’ve been defunct as a band for quite some time now, sadly. Just been in the mood for them, I suppose.
A few weeks back I finally got all the way caught up on the horror podcast Old Gods of Appalachia. While the show can be a little hit and miss at times, I found the recently concluded third season to be by far the best to date.
The last few episodes also had the virtue of featuring a lovely little tune by Jon Charles Dwyer, Panthers on the Mountainside. Apparently written specifically for the show, it appears to only be available on Old Gods’ Bandcamp page, so forgive me if I don’t have the neat little YouTube embed this time, but just follow the link on over and enjoy some nice folk music.
