For the past few days I have been up at Spencer Lake with a great deal of my family relaxing alongside the still ripples of the lake, under the majestic heights of the the towering Olympic mountains to the west.
In between laughing fits over Apples to Apples and my slow but sure chipping away at Eclipse I have found myself immersed in the Kings of Convenience's latest endeavor - Declaration of Dependence.
Kings of Convenience are like a great pairs of shoes...
the ones that aren't necessarily your favorite but that often are your saviors in a fashion crisis....
....one of those pairs you've had forever that are always comfortable and never seem to go out of style.
KoC are Steady. Reliable. Dependable.
Now I know, this makes them sound a little boring, predictable at the very least. But I've gotta say, I continue to love the stuff they turn out. Their harmonies are always gentle and smooth, their guitars perfectly complementing each other.
And they always seem to tuck a little groove under it all.
