Megan’s Top 70 of 2010: #56 - Jonathan Vassar & The Speckled Bird
Why I Decree it to Be So:
My second Richmond apartment was in what's known as The Museum District. Block after block of beautifully stately, gracefully grand homes and apartment buildings line Boulevard and Monument Avenue, and there were times, some golden late afternoon days, when I felt transported out of the modern frenzy and swept back decades and decades. In short, those days felt timeless. And so too does Signs & Wonders, the sublime effort from Richmonders Jonathan Vassar & The Speckled Bird. It's a lovely record, touched by shades of the countryside and days gone by. Do your record collection a favor and get your mitts on this one.
