something we can hold in our hands
Mark David Ashworth is a songwriter from Austin, and he plays with another amazing musician named Martin Crane in a really great band called Ink. But currently, he's living in a Mexico City hotel room, writing/recording songs and sharing them with us, and he doesn't know if he's coming back. If I were you, I'd go to his "Songs" page and spend some time listening to his stuff. He's a prolific artist, it seems, and his work is consistently enchanting and beautiful. This is my favorite at the moment, and I think you will like this a lot, especially after you've listened to it at least 3 times in a row:

Be sure to check out the rest of his songs here. Particularly, "Something We Can Hold in our Hands," which Mark David wrote while "thinking of the 1517 expedition to the Yucatan led by Franciso Hernandez de Cordoba, which was the first encounter between the Spanish explorers and the Mayas of the mainland."
Reading Marathonpacks' song descriptions is almost more fun than the actual listening part. This time he's convinced me to check out Rubicks' "Actress Model," and he's right, that shit is hectic.
Matt "super totally recommends" this new song by Arrah and the Ferns. Check it out.
