Daily Discovery: Stacey Randol, “Fragile Forest”
Stacey Randol is a pop artist that sprinkles in some folk for good measure. Her influences span the past and present, a list including Paul Simon, Fleetwood Mac, Harry Nilsson, Vampire Weekend, Angus & Julia Stone, Beach House, and Brandi Carlile. All great American songwriters, we see “Fragile Forest” channeling Carlile in the best of ways, both lyrically and musically.
Oh, fragile forest shine fast your light
And break me down when there’s no one else in sight
I find him here in the quietest hour, only here in this hour
