Song Of The Day: Richard Dawson & Circle – Methuselah

Richard Dawson has always followed his artistic whims down whichever path it takes him and on his latest album Henki, a collaboration with Finnish rock band Circle, it takes him down some fascinating paths indeed, with the band adding a lot of prog and at times almost metal-ish sounds to the mix. It’s a heady musical journey.

Though each of the songs on Henki are named after plants, the tales Dawson spins are decidely human ones. “Methuselah” is one such track, with Dawson telling the story of Donald Rusk Curry, the man who discovered the oldest living tree, a fact which could only be confirmed once said tree was cut down. Oh the irony.
