Tyler Butler – Sparrow

Watching Tyler Butler play Sparrow last night at the Rutherford House was a spiritual experience. Sparrow is the last song from Waxwing, an EP he released earlier this year in anticipation of his forthcoming full length follow up to his beautiful Feral Horse album. As an aside, his performance of the title track from Feral Horse yesterday evening was another highlight of the evening for me. Dig into this fellow. For the faithful listener, his songs will increase in strength and candor with repetition. He’s an artist with a depth of treasure buried in his minimal elemental music.



I know someday we’ll have to kiss for the last time
and I hope that it feels like this.
And someday I’ll have to think about that
but I can’t think about anything
when you’re in my kitchen making coffee,
my shirt draped over your body
like a bird that came in my open window,
flew in circles around my living-room.
No.

Know someday we’ll have to kiss for the last time
and I hope that it feels like this.
