Monday can be a bit of a drag, but lucky for us New Noise Magazine is premiering a brand new Darius Koski song, Fond of, Lost to. Culled from his new album Sisu, out April 7th, the track is the perfect introduction to an album replete with dynamic songwriting, catchy melodies, and a bevy of instrumentation that weaves it’s way through country, blues, acoustic, bluegrass and both American and Irish folk.
