Ryan Auffenberg


Atmosphere can be defined as:
A dominant intellectual or emotional environment or attitude.
There are certain albums that when you listen to them they create a certain atmosphere. Sometimes an album is perfect for a certain atmosphere. The other night I was looking for the perfect album to listen to late at night. I did not want something that would put me to sleep but something that would just feel perfect late at night. I came across the album, Marigolds by Ryan Auffenberg. It is a folk/rock album that is perfect for those times when you want to relax and listen to some really good music. The lyrical content helps create the atmosphere. Late at night listening to the track, Dizzy Spells is an amazing experience. The piano with the violin creates a haunting sound.
The lyrics are beautiful:
"Dizzy Spells"
Hold your breath
The water's cold at first
Most don't swim
Just drink to quench their thirst
Life and love and choosing what they're worth
Streams narrow and rip tides toss and turn
Treading out to brave the swells
If you live your life for dizzy spells
Then I can't be the first to tell you
You might drown
When no one knows you
It can feel like you're cursed
By saying so
That spell you might reverse
But when they all love you
And nothing ever hurts
You'll never be
The one that they loved first
Treading out to brave the swells
If you live your life for dizzy spells
Then I can't be the first to tell you
You might drown
Though they're just passers by
Their daggers hurt
But until they've jumped in too
What are they worth
Treading out to brave the swells
If you live your life for dizzy spells
Then I can't be the first to tell you
You might drown
But don't break down
This is a great album and I highly recommend it.
