"love is a dying," the latest single from Cincinnati's Bailey Miller, is a quiet and intimate folk song. It's as painfully bare and stripped down as it is beautiful. That is, until around the two minute mark when the guitar shifts to electric and has a chugging menace to its sound. The song just builds and builds from there into a wailing wall of sound that just plows you over. It's almost like seeing J Mascis shift from acoustic to electric at a live show, except slowly and over a period of a few minutes. What starts off as a really good song ends up being a revelation towards the end.
