Hippo Campus – Monsoon

Hippo Campus was a new discovery for me when they released Landmark this past February, their first full length album.

The entire album is a good listen, but this track in particular has stuck with me all year. Unlike last week’s track, this is a quiet one. It’s a “stare blankly out the window” song. I am rarely able to quiet my mind; this record does that for me. The tone is hushed and the melody is both beautiful and haunting.

For those of you in Portland, they play Port City next February. Join me?
