"This Too Shall Pass," by Danny Schmidt from Austin, Texas.

I was unable to catch his show during SXSW and I am regretting the missed opportunity. This song is stuck in my head. It requires three listens-- the first to be mesmerized, the second to hear all the layers, and the third to realize that the lyrics are an extended metaphor of cancer.

i worked with danny at a record store about ten years ago - he was always great to chat with about his folk icons and life on a commune... i see he's coming to charlottesville later this month; i'll have to check his show out. and you might not know this but danny actually did have cancer a while back, but it looks like he licked it.
