For me, music is more than just art. Music is more of a force, able to stir one's emotions, awaken one's senses, and unite people under a common denominator. It is an essential part to my life.

Not long ago on July 10th, the folk collective Jeannot released a 3-song EP Turner Street, which is a "sampling of songs written over the past year" by band member John Glouchevitch. The EP carries an extremely mellow tone, utilizing hushed vocals and quiet guitar strums to accomplish a very intimate collection. Intimacy isn't carried only through the atmosphere of Turner Street, but also slams home that idea lyrically. Perhaps my favorite, "Anyone You Want", exhibits a desperate display of romanticism, telling the story of someone who is so badly heartbroken that he's willing to be, well...anyone you want. It's this kind of concept that ties Turner Street together, and I'm not talking about sadness or melancholy, but instead an unquenchable need to love the things around us. At least that's what I got out of it. Anyway, the whole thing is available on Bandcamp, so if you're looking for something to calm you down at night, I'm sure this will strike some chords.
