So long Pete,
You loved everyone-A true man of the people-you lived long enough that we kind of forgot about you-that is our fault.
I never was a fan of your music but I am a big fan of a life filled with conviction.
And you lived on my river.
In fact, you really loved the Hudson River and fought to get it clean.
We have lost a consistent voice for freedom and the river has lost a friend.
The world is not better without you.
I was looking through all the countries that have visited the cave on my WordPress stat thingy and noticed this big area of Greenland with no hits at all…. So I figured I would take a visit myself and found these guys
This sound is both enchanting and comforting. It is like The Lumineers with some special ethereal Artic-ness added in. But I don’t want to call this band a knock-off of anything else because they are unique. They just seem to fit into this Nuevo folk music revival going on all over the world. I have no idea what they are saying but I know they sing truth because I can feel it. This dude takes regular notes and gently lifts his voice to a higher range flying to the heavens to produce a delightful resolution. This is pure magic. Maybe part of it is the language? I know French and Italian are called romantic but this language of Greenland is made for acoustic guitars and a gentle folk beat.
For more info on this band go to their website http://www.nanook.gl/bio.html
And give this a listen!
