Song of the Day: Joe Henry, “Heaven’s Escape (Henry Ford on the Bank of America)”

Oh my goodness, I think this album has reduced me to teen girl speak with how good it is. I adore the opening track, “Heaven’s Escape (Henry Ford on the Bank of America)”. It does what all good songs should do–evoke a sense of time and space that is both specific and really anywhere at all. It’s Bill Evans-esque without being really like Bill Evans at all. And that line, “Farewell to this endless, confused reverie”…it’s the sonic equivalent of an old movie.
