Prepare yourselves for the Sun Airway rug to be yanked out from under you and to land face first in greatness! Yours Truly and Sun Airway teamed up to make a country-tinged live version of their Pitchfork-playlisted song “Oh, Naoko” from their Dead Oceans debut, Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier, that is going to make music fans lose control of their tear ducts.
“They came prepared to re-construct “Oh, Naoko” from an electro-pop wanderer to a folk-pop rambler, transforming every hopeful plea to Naoko into a valiant proclamation of love. And, all the while, redefining the idea of what makes a song great.”
You can read Jon Barthmus’s letter to the song’s inspiration, Yoko Ono, at Yours Truly.
Sun Airway has two tour dates this week that are of supreme importance:
12/14/10 New York, NY – Mercury Lounge w/ Lia Ices, Mike Wexler, Sebastian Blanck
12/17/10 Philadelpia, PA – Making Time: Voyeur w/ Light Asylum
