Muse of the Day

It is growing cold. Winter is putting footsteps in the meadow. What whiteness boasts that sun that comes into this wood! One would say milk-colored maidens are dancing on the petals of orchids. How coldly burns our sun! One would say its rays of light are shards of snow, one imagines the sun lives upon a snow crested peak on this day. One would say she is a woman who wears a gown of winter frost that blinds the eyes. Helplessness has weakened me. Wandering has wearied my legs. Roman Payne

Muse of the Day

The widower reviewed his past in a sunless light which was intensified by the greyness of the November twilight, whilst the bells subtly impregnated the surrounding atmosphere with the melody of sounds that faded like the ashes of dead years. Georges Rodenbach, Bruges-La-Morte

The Folk Anti-Hero

If you haven’t heard Taylor Swift’s latest radio hit Anti-Hero, you probably living successfully of the grid. If you have found yourself inundated with all things Taylor, album reviews, fat shaming criticism, and subsequent ticket sales snafus, you might have missed this country cover of Swift’s latest single. Recorded by Josiah and the Bonnevilles, it’s the rare song cover that elevates the original material. A mournful, stripped down acoustic version, it’s definitely going on my winter playlist.
