Song of the Day 20: The Early November - The Truth Is

Ace Enders has never been too shy with how personal his music is. During his days with The Early November he crafted his music with a hyper-intimacy that would make Justin Vernon feel threatened. Perhaps my favorite track off of the 46 song LP, The Mother, The Mechanic, And The Path, "The Truth Is" is a fine example of both Ender's ability to pull the audience in, and his band's ability to craft music tender enough to accompany him. The clever way he incorporates each instrument with his writing is brilliant and is one of the best moments of the whole record. If ever they decide to reunite, I hope they live up to what they left behind.
