Prepare to have your mind blown, your heart sweetly broken and your ears blessed. Okay, it's possible that I'm a hugely hyperbolic version of myself this morning, but just humor me. My friend Meg and I sat side-by-side first thing this morning, in the tiny womb of an office she has down in the second grade hallway, and watched this. It was my first time to see it, her gajillionth. But there we sat, goosebump-y and teary-eyed on both ends of the spectrum. It's so beautiful. The familial quality of the sound, the broader concept behind just the five-minute song, the way it builds and soars, the pure artisanship. It's glorious.
