Song of The Day #075

"Untitled (1)" by Pelt

Ever since the thoroughly untimely and thoroughly depressing passing of Jack Rose last December, I've made a point to sift through the majority of his back catalogue because, well, the man was amazing, and I didn't really know that until he died. Pelt, a band he rotated in and out of, is an awesome, drone-tastic experimental Americana band, and this track, the first one from their untitled 2004 album, is just that: Americana-infused drone. Jack Rose was a truly magnificent guitarist and composer, and hearing stuff like this--in addition to his more bluegrass-y solo work--only makes his death sadder.
