Produced by Richard Reed Parry of Arcade Fire and featuring Aaron Dessner of The National, Little Scream‘s “The Heron & The Fox” already has an edge over other whatever other tracks may be coming your way this week, but even without the famous collaborators, this song is brilliant enough to stand on it’s own. It’s a delightfully simple song, not much more then picked guitar and whispered vocals, but the results are breathtaking. Laurel Sprengelmeyer gives an achingly pretty vocal performance and the multi-tracked acoustic guitar is lush and exquisite. You won’t be able to take this off repeat.
