Traces of Gravity

Josef and Esbjorn of Swedish shoegaze band Oh! Custer pose an intriguing question concerning their music:

"These sounds we make, are they traces of gravity?"

Oh! Custer - Post

Pondering the Earth's pull on our bodies isn't the first thing to come to mind when I listen to this song (or the second...), but it is a splendid reminder of how grand music is, how it's bigger than us all.

Oh! Custer has made an EP called States that can only be purchased through their record label, Series Two, a boutique operation based in Nebraska. So let's see, a Swedish band, releasing an album out of Nebraska, and perhaps so named after the famous 19th Century American general. Just checking to see if I had that right.
