Joe Pug, “Hymn #76”

A companion piece to “Hymn #101” and “Hymn #35,” the first single from The Great Despiser finds Joe Pug singing about love like a coffeehouse poet. “To meet me is to dare into the darkness,” he begins, his voice floating above fingerplucked guitar arpeggios. “If you are devoted to a dream, go and light the lantern, leave your family abandoned, meet me by the shallow of the stream.”
