I do love me some acoustic country/folk and today’s song is a particularly fine example of the genre.
This is Portland-based musician and songwriter Philippe Bronchtein – AKA Hip Hatchet – with the title track from his recently released new album Hold You Like a Harness. And it’s absolutely lovely; all full of soulful guitar, lots of strings and melancholia-tinged heartfulness in its lyrics.
Big fan of this – and the rest of the album is equally good. You should definitely check it out.
(I’ve only got a live version of the song for the video, but it’s still great. Spotify link should give you the proper album version though)
