MP3: Smother by Daughter
“Aching” is a descriptor that has become an unfortunate crutch for me when I’m talking about music. It’s not that I overuse it, or misuse it. I believe I use it pretty appropriately. But I use it lazily. I use it when a song makes me weak and sad, makes my bones hurt and I can’t be bothered to think about it critically, can only feel it tear at my gut.
Daughter’s “Smother” is achingly beautiful. Soft and fragile, just guitar and piano, but powerful as hell. Download it below.
