Perfect music for a night like this: "Lure and Cast", from Rebecca Gates' Ruby Series EP. John McEntire puts down a deceptively simple rhythm track, a vaguely haunting synth gives way to a positively inspiring vibraphone figure, and Rebecca's hushed vocals trace the outlines of a story whose chronology and details will be in dispute, even years from now. Sometimes it takes music this powerful to remind you that your solitude is part of something larger.
