[mp3] Belong – “Never Came Close”

Belong’s stunning new Common Era drops this week, and to celebrate the release Kranky has made “Never Came Close”, my personal favorite song from the record, available as a free download.  The distant drums and heavily textured chords are downright ominous, but the whole song elevates into dream-pop bliss when the hushed vocals kick in and soar towards that devastatingly beautiful chorus.  Kranky just seems to be off to such a great start to 2011 – they’re responsible for 3 of my top 5 or 6 favorite albums of this young year: Tim Hecker’s Ravedeath, 1972; Disappears’ Guider, and now Common Era.
