Eliza Edens - "Westlawn Cemetery"

Eliza Edens' latest song is quite clearly about mortality, but it's not a total bummer of a song. "Westlawn Cemetery" is definitely melancholy, but in a way that's just accepting. Edens has created the kind of song that may include electric instrumentation while still being purely folk. Sure, it's not a traditional version of the genre, but everything about "Westlawn Cemetery" is pure folk. It's a gorgeous, heartfelt song that will be impossible not to be affected by emotionally.

Eliza Edens says of her new song:

"During the depths of the pandemic, I was hunkering down at my childhood home with my parents in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. I went for walks every day, usually just up the street to a small, bucolic cemetery where I formed many early memories – sledding, walking the dog, learning to drive. During this time while I was home, it started to become clear that my mother needed extra care due to her illness. One afternoon on one of my walks, I started thinking a lot about mortality, the irony of gravestones, and how much time she spent as a professional gardener – tending to the earth and making the world a more beautiful place in the most literal way. Those thoughts swirled together, and this song manifested after fussing around in a tuning I learned from a Nick Drake song. My collaborator Pat had the idea of putting very thick, low-end electronic drums on the song which adds a felt heartbeat and weight to the song. It's all about the difficulty of accepting change and death."

  1. About 2 weeks ago I tried getting a loan but to no avail, I didn’t get an approval due to low credit score of 415. I came across a testimony on a comment session about a credit Expert called KENSTAR, helping people get their credit fixed in a week or more. I decided to give a try, to my greatest surprise he removed all negative items in my profile and increased my score up to 800. I advise you all to email him on KENSTARCYBERSERVICES@GMAIL.COM . He is truly the best in terms of credit repair services.

  3. Hackers broke into my wallet and stole over 70k worth of bitcoins. Everything occurred so quickly. I was at work one morning when I received an email from blockchain asking me to verify my account once more for safety reasons, which I did thinking it was the appropriate blockchain email address sending the mail to me. I then clicked a file that was attached to the email, and that's when everything went wrong. My personal computer collapsed for a brief period, and then I got an alert that my Bitcoin had been submitted into a different wallet. I tried emailing the blockchain support since I was so enraged and perplexed to see if there was any chance I could get my bitcoins back, but they stated there was nothing they could do. I gave up on it for a little period of time. I was informed that I could actually find Bitcoin with the aid of a hacker. I requested assistance from jamesmckaywizard who was introduced to me through a colleague. They only required the information from my own wallet. The money was found in my wallet in less than 4 working days, and it turned out that the intruder had already spent some of it, leaving me with only about 53,820.00 bitcoins. I'm still pleased and happy, jamesmckaywizard@gmail.com deserves every bit of praise for the fantastic job they did. They are influential on WhatsApp and email. jamesmckaywizard@gmail.com or What'sapp +919863293475
