Olden Yolk’s new tune “Distant Episode” is slow and sluggishly paced and it’s elegaic nature reminds me of early Sigur Ros or Pink Floyd at times (I can’t decide.)   It’s perfect music for a Tuesday evening and it’s certainly reflective enough for an early Wednesday morning too.  It’s brief but what matters most is the feeling that it evokes.  The feeling that is most apparent is of loss.  Perhaps I’m wrong but it might behoove you to expand your horizons and watch the video below.  Olden Yolk, the duo of songwriters Shane Butler and Caity Shaffer, share a new single and video, “Distant Episode,” from their forthcoming album, Living Theatre, out May 17th via Trouble in Mind.
