Now Only

Phil Elverum´s second lp released after the tragic death of his wife Geneviéve Castrée is called “now only”, released already a few weeks ago. After listening to it over and over again, I have to say, it´s again a collection of remarkable heartbreaking breathtaking songs as a follow – up of last years “a crow looked at me”, sometimes even with biographical storytelling like Mark Kozelek does like in the overwhelming centerpiece Tintin in Tibet or in the outbreak in the ironic chorus “now only”

“people get cancer and die / people get hit by trucks and die / people just living their lives … some people have to survive and find a way to feel lucky to still be alive / to sleep through the night”

I say now only

I sing to you
I sing to you
