The comforting slice of slow-churning introspection below comes straight off the ninth (!) album from Pennsylvanian singer-songwriter Denison Witmer. The Ones Who Wait is Witmer’s first record for Sufjan Stevens' label’s base, Asthamtic Kitty. "Life Before Aesthetics" follows in the same steady, supremely solid acoustic-based jams Witmer has always offered up, but the man tosses in some sad sack organ and gloomy horns to ratchet the track’s melancholy tone up to near tear-shedding levels.
