I think I’m going to try to post a music video here every Monday. Something I’m listening to as I write, or just something that catches my attention, but hopefully nothing you’ve heard before. Jason Webley is a bit like a young Tom Waits with an accordion (in this song at least). He’s got range, he’s always willing to try new things with different artists. He’s even one half of a Siamese twin sister act, Evelyn Evelyn.
This song has two of my favorite ingredients: heavy melancholy and accordion. The lyrics are quite moving, and the fact that he’s up there, alone and raw, makes this performance all the better. Enjoy!
