My brother recently told me about this guy named “Listener,” but apparently he’s been around for years and years.
I think this song, lyrics and video are hauntingly beautiful. Capturing grace in any medium is an impossible act, but Listener takes the medium of music as close to grace as I’ve seen anyone take it. His line, “We’re all made out of shipwrecks” is some kind of crazy beautiful. (In my wildest dreams, this is the kind of thing I’d like to do with some of my ideas.)
Watch “Wooden Heart” after the jump and let me know what you think in the comments!
