The newest release on earnest Ontario label Other Songs is a fitting welcome for winter. I felt lucky to finally experience it myself when I left the desert to visit the midwest this past weekend. Snow fell for an hour in Minneapolis on my final day in the city; the neighborhood where I was staying was quiet save for the sighing trees shedding leaves as wind passed through. Scott Orr whispered through my headphones his fragile musings on relationships all the while; his new record, Worried Mind, pushes through seasonal affective disorder to find peace.
