Mostly Autumn – “Distant Train”

I’m not a big rock/alt rock/prog rock fan, but Mostly Autumn isn’t a typical band. They’ve often been called Pink Floyd’s successors, and I won’t argue that – but they’re also many other things (come on, how many rock bands have a flutist?!). Quite a few of their songs have folk or Celtic influences, and their lyrics are typically epic and slow-burning. Occasionally, they generate an instrumental piece, and these are always worth taking notice of. The wistful rocker strains in this one ought to be self-evident.
