The Civil Wars - "Poison and Wine"

A quick perusal of my posts will show that it's no secret how much I love The Civil Wars. Their devastating vocals, lush harmonies, arresting melodies, sparse instrumentation and the unquantifiable weight of their combined forces create such a moving musical experience for me. "Posion and Wine" was the first song of theirs that started getting some major attention and last Friday they performed it for their second trip to The Tonight Show. I could attempt to describe it with a bunch of pretty words and metaphors...or I could just let you enjoy the unfolding musical magic for yourself. (NBC only has the full episode, so just fast forward to the last section.)
