The deep blue and vast "Common Dark" from Jess Robbins' "Lightfield" album

The cover of Jess Robbins' "Lightfield" album shows a vast ocean that seems to go on forever. Being adrift in some ethereal place resonates in the alt folk track Common Dark floating on pedal steel guitar, picking acoustic and an open drum kit that feels like it is from some distant place, in the corner of an old church or maybe deep in a cavern. The sounds builds and become so vast just like that ocean and just as blue in contemplation of the end of something and maybe the beginning of something else.
