Among sparsely arranged, deeply personal albums that revolve around the death of a loved one, Mount Eerie’s A Crow Looked at Me got a lot of attention this year, and deservedly so. But do not miss out on If Blue Could Be Happiness, the 2017 LP by Florist, a New York-based “friendship project” (not band) fronted by Emily Sprague, who lost her mother recently and suddenly. It’s not just a mournful collection of gentle indie-pop songs, it is a tiny, welcoming sound world where anyone can enter and feel loved and supported and understood.

It is sonic salve for a heart roughened up by life’s challenges. It is beautiful and calming and necessary. Thank you, Emily Sprague. Thank you, Florist.

“If Blue Could Be Happiness” by Florist off the LP/CD/Cassette/Digital album ‘If Blue Could be Happiness’ out on Double Double Whammy September 29th, 2017.
