Music: Take Us Back

Oof - that was a long, holiday and work-induced delay. Back to regular posting...

Alela Diane's sophomore album, "To Be Still," unloads a barrage of indie folk imagery on the listener (running streams, blowing wind, swaying trees, etc.). For me, though, a song from the album called "Take Us Back" will always bring up impressions of a post-apocalyptic, zombie-infested Savannah, Georgia.

That's because "Take Us Back" was used as the ending credits theme for episode 5 of "The Walking Dead." The spare, haunting instrumentation and vocals were a pretty good complement to one of the most emotionally affecting game endings I've ever played. I recommend both the song and the game.
