Two Blue Lights
Didn't It Rain is a benchmark record for me. I loved it upon first listen for how alive it felt and when I learned later on that it was actually recorded live, I was both inspired and incredibly relieved. The record I had always wanted to make had already been made. I could just enjoy it rather than worry about making it myself.
"Two Blue Lights" clocks in at just over two minutes in length, which is notable if only because the second shortest song on Didn't It Rain is just nine seconds shy of six minutes. However, its presence, harrowing, cold and almost violent in its sparseness, is felt long after the final notes ring out. I've yet to grow tired of the confused emotional state I'm left in after listening to it on repeat -- six or seven times while writing this small handful of sentences -- and I don't imagine that I ever will.
