Haley Heynderickx - "Worth It"

We were forced to wait four long months between the release of Haley Heynderickx's amazing "Oom Sha La La" and "Untitled God Song." Luckily for us all, it's a mere two weeks later and we already have a new song of hers to check out. "Worth It" is simply stunning. It starts out as this mesmerizing quiet, slightly off kilter folk-ish song, truly driven by Heynderickx's exceptional voice. Out of nowhere, it starts going off into some noisy indie rock until it's pulled back down into its folk beginnings. I could gush and gush about the various twists the song takes, but I don't want to spoil this one for you. I don't think I've been this mesmerized by a new song since I first heard Lady Lamb's Ripely Pine back when she was the Beekeeper. This is the unicorn level rare folk-ish song that's nearly eight minutes long, and you're going to be desperate for more when it's over.

You can (and should) listen to "Worth It" below. Haley Heynderickx's debut album, I Need to Start a Garden, will be out March 2 on Mama Bird Recording Co. You can pre-order your copy here. For more on Haley Heynderickx, check her out on Facebook and Twitter.
