Anthony Friedlander “Sacrifice”

Don’t know if I’ve heard many things that have been as lush and heartrending as “Sacrifice” this year. From the cascading piano chords, to the plaintive Brian Wilson looking at a rainy beach vocal ( swear that’s what it sounds like), both the mood and construction of this song are something else: no hyperbole, it really is transcendent. It brought to mind one of the absolute diamonds of the 21st century, the Ed Harcourt song “From Every Sphere”, itself a blueprint for grand, evocative, melodic epics to ponder the universe to, and is equally as beautiful.
