These are from the new Southerly album, Storyteller and the Gossip Columnist. Taking Stock begins as a nervous echo of Elliott Smith's Needle In The Hay, until the tension, heightened with the repeated verse breathe, because is just might be your last breaks under its own momentum, and the song is allowed that one last breath before ending. If We All Forget brings all the paranoia of Radiohead's songs of displacement. Both have a beautiful gravity that lingers.
