Poison and Wine

Do you ever come across a song that just speaks to you in some way or another? A song that you can listen to over and over again - where the 100th time is just as amazing as the first time you heard it? I am currently in love with this song. There's so much emotion within the lyrics and their performance; their voices are amazingly haunting and they tell the story so well - it's like watching a movie. I read an interview with Joy and she described the song as "a gut-level-honest tug and pull of affection and affliction." And that's exactly what it is. Enjoy.

The Civil Wars are one of my favorite bands too. I adore this song, though I've never seen the video. Thanks for posting it!

Great song. I also like their song Barton Hollow. They have such a unique sound and the guy looks a lot like Johnny Depp

I regularly have this feeling, and have started to wonder if it's going to go away at some point. It's kind of like love- there has to be a limited amount of love you can feel for a limited number of people, right? But I keep getting gut-wrenchingly attached to song after song. And this is one of them, actually. Their voices are amazing and the soulful, aching quality of the music is perfect. That you chose this song MAY make me heart you. :)

My wonderful husband E is on a mission trip with our church in Africa, and I'm here at home (ugh, gotta work) missing him. I am lying in bed right now with my ipod and my headphones in my ears listening to this song (which I discovered TODAY because of your blog, and promptly BOUGHT on iTunes because it's so great) singing at the top of my lungs (good thing E's gone, haha) and loving it, because it's just so hauntingly beautiful. Weird description, but it's true. It's hauntingly beautiful.
Please don't make fun of me for that description, haha. :)

The Civil Wars are currently on tour with Adele! I saw them in Boston and I think you'd love them even more in person. They've got great chemistry and Joy Williams has such a playful spirit on stage :)

Brooke said...

I can't stop listening to the entire album!
