Music to listen to in autumn

Autumn Playlist

Laika by Wil Wagner (2013)
  • Laika by Wil Wagner

Wil Wagner, from the Australian music group The Smith Street Band, beautifully narrates the heartwrenching tale of Laika, the first dog to ever travel into outer space. Laika, previously known as Little Curly, was a stray taken off of the streets of Moscow and placed in the Soviet space craft Sputnik 2 where she died of overheating. The carefully crafted lyrics of this title track from Wagner’s 2013 indie alt album are sure to bring tears to your eyes.
