Track of the Night: Quicksand, by Natalie Walker – Thievery Corporation remix

Sometimes, Pandora serves up a song at work that really seems to click with me, and I give it a deeper listen later that night. I admit to knowing nothing about Natalie Walker before today, nor the extent of Thievery Corporation’s influence on this remix, except that the chill groove on this track is captivating. Cathedral-like organ plus a plodding bass line, and the singer’s melancholic voice.  The song is contemplative to start, seeming unsure in the middle, but finishes strong and confident.

Some evenings, you just want to sit still and let the noise and chaos of the day sort itself through, like a mental sort-through and cleanup. This song helps do just that.
