Some Weekend Tunes

Just in time for the weekend, I wanted to share some music with you that I had the incredible fortune of hearing live on Tuesday evening. Everything about Jus Post Bellum gives me chills in the best way imaginable: their sound, their lyrics, their aesthetic...all simply gorgeous. I plan to take some long drives through the Virginia/Maryland countryside listening to them this weekend, which would be fitting, as their lyrics are inspired by the American Civil War (really, it's so much more than that, but I won't go on because I want you to get to their music as quickly as possible and hear for yourself.) I'm so awestruck and inspired by what they've created... I have a feeling a whole lot of people will soon feel the same. Three quarters of the band are friends/classmates of ours from Bard College, and it is a true privilege to know them. They've given us all quite a gift with this music.

Give them a listen and be on the lookout for their new album, Oh July on Tuesday.

Have a great weekend!
