Artist: Guardylou Track: "You Who Never Arrived" Album: Wide-Eyed Collective Sampler No. 1 Listen

About the music Columbus musicians put out a decent share of memorable folk, and this song adds to that rich heritage. It's dark, catchy and sad - something I imagine hearing from a pair of gypsies as I walk out of a bar in Amsterdam late at night. Yeah.

Why to know it Those who like the spacey rhythms and crescendos of Brainbow, who played the Alive Bands to Watch show last weekend, will enjoy this twist from the band's guitarist Dave Barnes, joined here by Kristin Sell and Mr. Biscuits (apparently a talented housecat).
