If you have caught any of this band’s music prior to the release of the current EP there will be a nice, familiar feel to this song. There is a great groove to this track that carries you along from a slightly muted lead-in to some nice drums and guitars. The supplemental vocals tracks here also add some good layers of atmosphere – there is some real depth there especially if you slap on some cans and really drop into the sounds for a bit.
For some extended listening pleasure (aside from the rest of this EP) check out their Shades of Faces album – you will not be disappointed.
Hmmm…that is what I thought as I listened through this song for the first time. Having been a fan of Buffalo Killers and also Andrew Gabbard’s solo endeavors (recently reviewed here) I was waiting for this collaboration to come out. This track, an early release from the upcoming album set to drop in July, had me intrigued for sure but uncertain on exactly how I felt about it.
Ten repeats later, I can say that I like it more every time I hear it. The mix on this is interesting with the instruments just a little but forward of the vocals and the atmosphere of the music has a bit of the Beach Boys to it. There is a very cool guitar part around the 1:30 mark and the pacing changes at several places throughout provide nice space. And that lead out on piano at the end…very nice 🙂
