Reminds us to keep watch for the little moments that make up a life well-lived.

These 4 singer-songwriters from Santa Cruz are extending the legacy of the Grateful Dead, with quirky lyrics plucked from the absurdity of daily life served over a double-lead guitar with mid-tempo groove that would make Bob and Jerry proud. The roots flavor is all there: the Wurlitzer, the B3, and the band synergy from the call-and-response guitar figures.

With a powerful four-part harmony, Burning Pictures gives us a groovy minute to look back at life, and appreciate the moments spent with the people we care about. Seaglass, the latest from Burning Pictures, is a mellow song that reminisces on memories with a lost love, and finds a purity of expression that is hidden in the unearthed details of a romantic past. This nostalgic bit of hindsight feels genuine, and reminds us to keep watch for the little moments that make up a life well-lived.
