Edison Woods

A beautiful new song by NY band Edison Woods has hit my inbox: well, sort of dropped into it with a teeny splash, but the ripples keep getting bigger and bigger. This is the Edison Woods of “Last Night I Dreamt I Would Last Forever,” a song so weirdly and slowly sublime that one forgets that it spans over seven minutes.

This new song, entitled “Wind Song,” reminds me of nothing so much as the Cinematic Orchestra — both bands employ that muted atmospheric piano and the sped-down pace. There’s just a bit of that European, San-Ilya-esque sensuality thrown in as well. The songs end up sounding almost otherworldly, but not in an alien way. More like they are the soundtrack following someone with a perfect life, someone who throws open French doors into a sunshiney morning.

I don’t have a song for you to sample, but you can listen to the Wind Song in its entirety at Edison Woods’s site.

    Good song, it kind of reminds me of My Brightest Diamond a little bit too. Problem with a group like this is it’s nice to listen to when you’re going to sleep or doing homework, but it’s hard for me to listen to really actively.
