Song of the Day: 'Crosshairs' by Cassandra Jenkins

Found myself enchanted over the weekend by the new album by Cassandra Jenkins, a woman I had never so much as heard of before my friend Jesse shared this song on Facebook:
Song for Saturday: Well this is quietly gorgeous (nice drone video too). Cassandra Jenkins’ album is quite short -- 7 songs, 30 minutes -- and kind of mysterious. Lush indie folk with a lot of layers.
Followed up with:
I posted a track from this album yesterday, but I've been listening to it pretty much nonstop all weekend. Highly recommend the whole album experience, if you can give yourself 30 minutes to let it wash over you. It's hard to describe, and hearing tracks in isolation doesn't really do justice to it. It's an immersive flow of melody, contemplation, shimmering saxophones and flutes, guitar reverb and a closing instrumental decorated with bird calls. An exceptional release. I can't really compare to anything directly, but vibe-wise in places it reminds me of both Astral Weeks and Kate Bush's "Aerial."
Indeed. It's subtle but definitely leaves a mark.
