“Weightless” by Tica Douglas | Directed by Gracie Pizzo
from Our Lady Star of the Sea, Help + Protect Us (TL-100)
Watch the video at Dimestore Saints, where Sam writes:
…toggling between the phrase “weight lift” and the song’s title…
hesitant arpeggios further compound its melancholic buoyancy
“The Singer-Songwriter on God, Humanity,
and their beautiful new album
. . . explores that dance between belief and nonbelief (and non-nonbelief)
with the earnest curiosity of someone fascinated by the myths
that people tell each other over generations in order to stay alive.
The songs throughout are almost heartbreaking in their tenderness and beauty:
most of them consist of little beyond Douglas’s bone-brittle guitars and voice,
fragile as porcelain, and the melodies bob slowly, like paper sailboats on a lake.
