“I knew I could love or die”

Song: I Let It Go
Artist: The Thermals
Album: Now We Can See

Simple, sage advice. Not exactly new, yet so hard to follow. The “I thought it must be keeping me afloat” and “I thought it must be guiding me home” lines seem especially pertinent here. It’s not overtly catchy, but it’s got a positive, driving energy (assisted by the lyrics/message) that I quite like, capped by the final twenty- second rush. For some reason, the spontaneous yeah’s and woo’s somehow sound better slightly muffled, like at 0:16 and 2:59. What can I say, they amuse me.

I prefer the power of the plugged-in version, but his voice is still comparably strong, considering the sonic differences.
