Wednesday's song - Seagull

A month or more late, but I'm not waiting 'til next year... anyway, it's not a cover of the Elvis Perkins song, but one by Seagull, the band project of Australian Chris Bolton, who shows his classical guitar training rather obviously on this particular track from Goodbye Weather.
It has a perfect, suitably humble, repentant feel, at least one (near) quote from the Bible, and is really quietly arresting; I properly feel I've heard it afterwards - there's a strength of emotion that suggests something much more powerful in terms of sound; an impression of a loud & moving crescendo part way through, which isn't physically there.... curious.
