Hem – The part where you let go

“The part where you let go”

Like the indigo girls, the harmonies in this song are actually lower than the melody. I absolutely love the result. If I were to classify this group, I’d say it’s nickel creek meets Indigo girls. It’s a bit more complex than just that though. You’ll find many more instruments in HEM’s arsenal. If you listen to “Half acre” you’ll hear a bassoon, an oboe, piano, xylophone, clarinets, and strings.

If a sense of musical folk is your thing, you’ll really dig this music.

From the Album: Home Again, Home Again

    Great choice. Hem are far too unknown. Love the blog — the music is almost unerringly up my alley. Great work.

    You didn’t mention that this song is used in a Liberty Mutual Insurance ad:

    You could potentially be responsible for my being broke! :) I love them too!
