With the recent loss of two more musical icons over the weekend, a highly charged political environment at hand, uncontrolled wildfires all around the southeastern US and close friends facing internal turmoil as the seasons submit to the oncoming cold, it seems as though the colorful aspects of our world are slowly turning to grey. Although there is a certain element of sadness to it all, in the darkest of times hope, strength and love consistently bring us back together with sharper focus. A world without Leonard Cohen certainly feels like a world without color. In tribute, this week’s episode of Monuments in Ruin honors one of the great storytellers of our time by featuring all black and white album covers and doubles up with a few musical themes to match the current climates. Heaviness is an emotion and we will carry it together.
