Sleeper Track: Emil Amos and Holy Sons - Getting Old

I've been poking around the biography of drummer Emil Amos lately, trying to get a handle on his different projects, most recently joining OM (and releasing a 7" inch single on Sub Pop), and before that, working with Grails and Holy Sons. The 2003 Holy Sons album, I Want to Live a Peaceful Life is an interesting atmospheric texture folk rock album, in the vein of Calexico's southwestern tinged alt-country folk album Carried to Dust, released in September on Quarterstick records.

To my mind, the standout track from that album is Getting Old.
