Songs We Love is a series and a podcast that looks at the stories behind some of the songs we're playing on our new music discovery stream, WUNC Music.

Over the next few weeks, we'll feature artists from Yep Roc Records. The label, headquartered in Hillsborough, NC, continues to celebrate its 20th anniversary. We're commemorating by highlighting some of their artists.

This time, Eric Hodge chats with Josh Rouse about his song 'Pheasant Feather' from the album The Embers of Time.

The song is a collaboration with fellow songwriter Jessie Baylin, who Rouse interestingly has never met. He says the song is about that universal feeling of wanting to have someone tell you what to do at times.

"Everybody wants that guru a bit."
