Like a lover that you thought you’d left behind you
I’m not trying
To be worse
Than I am //
Y’all ready to cry? I’ll wait while you go get a bottle of red wine (please don’t tell me you actually enjoy vino blanc).
This track “Ruse” by Feiler is a seemingly innocuous indie folk tune that ebbs and flows instrumentally, loaded with subtle acoustic guitars and synths, and lyrics that tug at my heartstrings. Yes, I too am surprised my black heart can feel something.
Feiler (who has been featured on the Left Bank before) is the solo project of LA-based singer/songwriter/producer Austin Smith. If you recall, he left his college house in Los Angeles and took to the rural woods of northern Georgia in a Thoreau-esque manner, to create some music.
