// sunday music update: long distance lullaby

I just realised what today’s sunday music was missing, and it’s this – Oxford’s Stornoway, and their stunning album closer “Long Distance Lullaby”. Best enjoyed through headphones and accessible here, it tells the story of a man who finds himself drunkenly wandering home one night in a tone that both simultaneously resigned and hopeful, like the ramblings of a close friend. For all the melancholy, it’s also kind of life-affirming.

Eccentric, ambitious and building to a stunning climax, it is the perfect love song to be listening to as you step into Valentine’s Day, whether or not you are attached. It’s on YouTube here, but the grooveshark link above is higher quality so I’d advise using that instead. Enjoy:
