This Ann Arborâ€“based quartet blends a wide variety of Americana styles. The title track is inspired by a friend who contemplated jumping from a high bridgeâ€”but turned back. The minor-key dirge haunts to the core: â€śDonâ€™t believe everything that you hear about angels drawing near / But I hold on to a ghost who knows my name.â€ť The songâ€™s jaunty mirror image, â€śEndure,â€ť ambles on a happy southern gospel rhythm, complete with rich bass backup vocals. Highly recommended.
