10 to Spin | The Lighthouse and the Whaler

Just last February, we featured a three-for-one Jam of the Day special with our favorite Ohio indie-folksters, The Lighthouse and the Whaler.

Riding high on our unadulterated adrenaline rush from TLATW's pristine take on whimsical pop 'n' folk, rife with head-in-the-clouds harmonies and dreamy percussion, we asked the Cleveland boys to put together a 10 to Spin. They got all Roberto Benigni on us, and the result is ten songs that remind us all that Life. Is. Beautiful.

Here's what The Lighthouse and the Whaler have to say about their theme of choice: "We've all had those crushing moments when our plans fall through and our dreams disappoint, leaving us wondering why we bothered. These songs remind us of a world we saw through younger eyes, like a fresh breeze in the winter brings the memory of spring."
