Choice Cuts: The Best of Nick Drake
40 years after his death, Nick Drake's music shines. Here are some favorites that you owe it to yourself to check out!
6. “From the Morning”
“Now we rise/ And we are everywhere” is the epitaph inscribed into Drake’s gravestone. That lyric comes from this song, Pink Moon’s closer, “From the Morning.” It’s a song of truly stunning beauty. The riff he plays bounces easily along, seemingly without any sort of inhibition. It’s a ray of hope coming from a mind clouded with all sorts of trouble. Closing an album filled with melancholy, isolation, and anxiety; it is a moment of clarity and cleansing. Even after many listens, its great power never subsides.
