I remember listening to my parents' vinyl copy of this album when I was a kid--and this was easily my favorite song of the bunch. The way I can tell if I love a piece is if I memorize it accidentally, and this is an early example of that happening.
Down Like Silver:
Found this pair because the male half used to be part of EastMountainSouth. This is an album I can listen to on repeat for an entire afternoon--I really hope they release some more songs (or even another album!), because I love the way they blend, and their music is just so gentle to listen to. A warm sound, even when it's melancholy.
Over the Rhine:
Someone gave me a ripped copy of this album when I was in college, and I fell in love by the end of the second song--and have now bought quite a few of their other albums (and a legit copy of this one), so this was a case where piracy actually benefited the artists in question. ;)
The Unseen Guest:
I have no idea how I came across this duo, but I remember making my mom listen to this song in particular because I liked it so much. It's too bad it looks like we're stuck with only two albums from them--their songs are clever, both musically and lyrically.
Iron & Wine:
Iron & Wine's lyrics, on the other hand, tend to be pretty much word hash, but they're intriguing word hash, and I really like the instrumentation. This may have come to me courtesy of Pandora, back when that was keeping me sane at work.
Okay, so technically this doesn't fit, since "La Follia" is actually just one of the names for a theme that everyone wrote variations on, back in the day. But the thing is, I am a major junkie for a good set of variations. I have two albums that are nothing but variations on this theme (~2 hours total), and if the guy who headlined the first two albums makes a third I will buy it. (Seriously, Jordi Savall, call me if you want Kickstarter funds or something--I'll help you make it happen.)
