The Good Listeners - "Can't Be Held"

Portland, OR band the Good Listeners took to making their third record, Don't Quit Your Daydream, on the road: 11 tracks in 12 cities over 24 days. Over the course of recording and playing with a different musician nearly every day, the band filmed a documentary about trying to make a living while pursuing their musical aspirations (watch the trailer here). One of the best songs off the album is the ethereal "Can't Be Held"—a slowly forming haze of quiet electronic rumbling and acoustic guitars centering around a clean-toned guitar riff.
