Top 10 of 2017: #5 The Wild Reeds - Only Songs 

#5 The Wild Reeds - Only Songs

This is one of those songs that didn’t work for me initially. I liked it, but I didn’t find it to be anything particularly noteworthy. Then I heard a live version (I think from NPR’s coverage of Newport Folk) and I really dug it.

It takes about a minute to kick in, but the harmonies kick in, and they power through the great chorus, and you start singing along.
