WATCH: M Iafrate & the Priesthood - Song of Songs live in Morgantown, 2010

"Song of Songs" by M Iafrate is one of my top five favorite songs by a West Virginia artist. In fact, of the tens of thousands of songs I have in my iTunes, it is a top play. The track was first an acoustic number part of M Iafrate's impressive 2003 split with Sean Decker. A flawless full-band electronic version was later recorded for M Iafrate & the Priesthood's 2005 album O Happy Marriage. Here is the band performing the excellent song last year at 123 Pleasant Street in Morgantown where they opened for Bonnie 'Prince' Billy. The performance also features Iafrate's brother Andrew Iafrate on acoustic guitar. A former member of The Minus Tide, Killed at Camp and others, M Iafrate is still making great music, which you can hear on his bandcamp page. And much thanks to Iafrate for sporting the Viva La Revolución de Appalachia t-shirt on stage.
