At last! The hotly anticipated solo album from Meg Baird (her third offering) finally arrives tomorrow! Don’t Weigh Down the Light slowly seeps into your spirit and sends your senses into passionate overdrive. Like a fine wine, the meticulous care and effort that went into the making of Don't Weigh Down the Light is evident from first listen and its bouquet expands as it breathes in the open air; fittingly, Meg Baird recently performed at Gundlach Bundschu, a winery nestled in the mountains of Northern California. Accompanied by Charlie Saufley, Meg sat down for an impromptu session of rhythm, strum, and melody within the winery's deep barreled cave, and lucky us ('n' you) - the gig was filmed! Spellbinding guitar coupled with poignant lyrics sung into the naturally reverberant room, the video of their performance of "Back To You," a Don't Weigh Down The Light highlight, will send you into a luminous daze!
Maybe it's the wine speaking, but you're a dolt if this video doesn't make you grab a copy of Don't Weigh Down The Light today!
