Song of the Day (11/30/09) November 30, 2009

With December only hours away, it seems like a good night for something mellow.  Tom McRae hit it big with his first two albums (his self-titled debut garnered him a Mercury Music Prize nomination in the U.K. in 2001), but he’s recently settled into semi-respected singer/songwriter territory, releasing an album of delicate pop songs every couple years to moderate acclaim and sales.  McRae has a soothing tenor, and it’s usually supported by piano, acoustic guitar, and understated strings.  Just the right thing for a chilly autumn night.  McRae’s second album, 2003’s Just Like Blood, is my favorite.  This song comes from that album, and it’s called “You Only Disappear.”
