Jam of the Day | Lowland Hum - War Is Over

Greensboro's music scene doesn't get as much attention as my own Triangle scene, but Lowland Hum -- the name under which husband and wife Daniel Levi and Lauren Plank Goans perform -- should change that, and rightfully so. 'War Is Over' is a lush ode to simplicity and peace, hinged on Daniel and Lauren's perfect harmonies and a building orchestration that goes from guitar and tambourine to a symphony of strings and keys, and a simple and simply devastating conclusion.

Lowland Hum's debut record, Native Air, came out this week, on August 6. It's a doozy, and you can pick it up at their Bandcamp.

Stream 'War Is Over' below, and catch them on tour in the Southeast starting in Carrboro at the ArtsCenter on 8/10.
