There are songs that just… transcend. Joshua Hyslop’s “The Veil” plays like a hymn, with a hushed vocal performance that seems to slip from his very soul. “In that evening light by the riverside, as the water rises up its song,” he sings, barely a quiver. “Well, no sparrows fly when the lilies cry, soon the stones shall join along.” As delicate as it is, there’s something alarmingly pounding about the thematic material, turning his gaze to the afterlife to deliver a knockout punch.
