More from More Than Shapes: Valentine's Day edition

We're so happy to share another {new release} Tuesday with you, and this week it just so happens to line up with the day of Saint Valentine -- what better way to celebrate the day of love, longing, and mended / broken hearts than with a new favorite? Whether you're picking up a long-awaited album to give as a gift, to take home and digest, or to use to make a mix for (or in spite of) that special someone, here's something we can all agree on: another new video from the More Than Shapes collection will undoubtedly make your day. This time it's one of our personal favorites from The Worst You Can Do Is Harm, "Scent of Lime" -- a track equally appealing to the happy and the forlorn in all of us.

It's a bit fitting that Valentine's day naysayers "...argue[s] that the speculative explanation of sentimental customs [are] posing as historical fact" when it comes to the love-tinged commercial traditions of February 14th every year. The music of The Long Winters tends to serve as that same formula for many, where one is easily able to insert one's self into the story line to make it their own, regardless of the histories held or factual accounts of the past. Thus, the language of John Roderick is a language that speaks to all of us, much like love itself. Because the plainest words really are the finest. And we're oh-so-happy to be able to share his words with you.

{Be sure to take a peek at last week's introduction to the series, and stay tuned for a new video next Tuesday, February 21st.}

I still can't believe this actch happened, ps.
