Hidden Gem: Juliana’s Daughter “In Which She Melts”

From Someone Not There web series Episode #1 “The Launch” comes this spectacular track by Juliana’s Daughter.

Such a treat to be able to include in the web series soundtrack (thank you Janice!!). Listen to that chorus: “I melt like butter around you / And my heart’s aflutter around you.” Shucks. That’s a mixtape special.

As gentle and as effortless as clouds, In Which She Melts instantly creates a beachhead on the shores of your heart: capturing it not with force but with a distinct and noble peace. Hyperbole? Or earnest joy?

That’s up to you:

Unwritten is the Scotch of comic books…it’ll just improve with age. Crazy how good and smart this series is, panel for panel. I dunno how people read Unwritten monthly. I “need” the trades to absorb all the depth of the story, it’s so dense. (Morning Glories another excellent dense comic book series is the same…way too dense for monthlys!)
