Florist-Vacation

Here is my select song for you this week.

Sometimes it can be powerful to look back.This song sends me back to a pleasurable, thoughtful moment in time, and I bet it will send you there too.

Florist-Vacation

Emily Sprague of Florist writes poetry and accompanies it with music. She bears her heart in her sing-speak style and as you listen you find it to be ‘deep in her diary’ personal, and yet it also strikes a chord because it seems oddly universal.  Along with her intimate songs, you have to respect her counterparts, Rick Spataro, Jonnie Baker, and Felix Walworth who accompany each song with a substantially important musical addition. “Vacation” is just one sparkly gem in the ‘mine’ of  loveliness found on the EP Holdly, which arrived on October 30 via Double Double Whammy.

“Holdly examines things we hold dear, things that hold us, and things we hold ourselves to,” Sprague told FADER over email. “Holdly remains calm all while realizing, living with, and wholly accepting the sad and beautiful life that every one of us experiences.”
