It’s been one of those days where no matter what music I’ve put on, it’s just rubbed me the wrong way. Even, Johnny Cash for fucks sake, even Johnny Cash. I mean, what the actual fuck? When you can’t listen to Cash, then you know shits bad.
I was almost ready to give up and not share anything with you today. But then I stumbled upon Jirka Hájek’s exquisite tagelharpa (a four-stringed bowed lyre from Estonia) cover of Myrkur’s Leaves of Yggdrasil, and I was like ‘ahh, this is what I needed.’ It’s so soothing I feel as though I’m floating for its four minutes running time. Hájek is a multi-instrumentalist from Czechia who creates music in a variety of genres. I strongly recommend you make your way to his Bandcamp page once you’re done listening to Leaves of Yggdrasil.
