We've teamed up with Come Hear NC on a podcast series that explores North Carolina music one song at a time. On this episode, Jacob Sharp of Mipso talks about 'Black Flower Blooming' by The Dead Tongues. He says it's a song that both speaks to living in North Carolina, and also needing to spead your wings and fly from home.
