Few things beat the weeks that follow a big festival, since that is when all the great live footage filters through the wonderful series of tubes that is the internet, and onto this here blog. We've already posted a few live videos from the Siren Nation festival, and now we bring you a track from the recently-released compilation, Voices from the Siren Nation, Vol. II, Live at the Wonder Ballroom.
Mirah's stark live version of "Apples in the Trees," from 2001's flawless Advisory Committee album, is as gorgeous as the original, with its final refrain of "You don't have to wait until you die" being repeated over-and-over as the song slowly fades away.
