Emily Yacina’s excellent new album, Remember The Silver, is out tomorrow, but it’s streaming in full a little early. We’ve shared a handful tracks from it already — “Gleaming,” Bleachers,” and “Arcades & Highways” — and we even talked to Yacina about it a couple months ago. The whole thing is great, stretching Yacina’s sound in dreamy new directions, like the horn-punctuated “Siren Song” and the dancey jingle “Talk Talk Talk.”
But I want to highlight “96th Street” from it, an absolutely gutting song that destroys me every time I listen to it. It goes along with the album’s theme of looking for beings that might not really be there, and it freeze-frames an encounter with a lost loved one’s relative: “I see your brother all time/ His voice is like a sad spell/ That brings you back to life,” she sings over sharp acoustic guitar. “A trick played by the angels/ Now look at all this time/ Between us like a cold hell/ A void I get to know.”
