6am Repeat is a recurring feature here at Folk Hive in which we stream the latest track that plays incessantly in the earbuds when we awake at that hour and imbibe massive amounts of coffee and cigarettes in preparation for the advancing day. Consider it your jam of the day — a sweet, sweet gift from me to you. I love you, dude.
The Lonely Wild is so great that this is the second time they’ve been on repeat up in this space but as my vacation ends, it feels right to bookend this week of awesomeness and stress, with the calming sounds of a band who is at once part Civil Wars, part Vandaveer, and part something I’ve not heard. Also of note: This jam features the most soothing use of electric guitar I’ve ever heard.
