Thankfully no real parades were rained out in today’s mixed weather of intermittent rain and hail.
Beautiful line of “I’ll be the lighter, that sets your heart on fire…” in this track. Love the synth-keys!
Love the new music and cannot wait for the whole album to be released!
The drums and percussion lines are addictive!
Because tonight, Vance Joy played a brief cover of it thanks to a randomly expressed request!
New music from a fantastic musician!
Much as I love the bluesy rock vibes of Wide Mouth Mason, one of my favourites of my favourite band is this slow, emotive, melancholic ballad that makes me want to have a warm drink and a satisfying book to read and relax on rainy days like today. The last few bars of vocals always gets to me.
Because when it’s already May and you still feel like you have a lot of week left, you need an anthemic rock song to power you through.
Sometimes, I wonder if kids today will look back at this era of music decades from now and still enjoy the artists of the day as much as kids in my day look back to the music and artists of the 80’s and 90’s. There are so many songs from that period that I either know the lyrics by heart or, at the very least, sing the chorus convincingly! I miss songs like “All I Want” by Toad the Wet Sprocket. And bands with interesting names!
Weird as it may seem, I’m a fan of music I can not only listen to but also physically own. There are variations to how I choose to own music, with my favourite of favourites often being artists I have music on multiple media. Wide Mouth Mason is one such artist. I love their entire catalogue as a longtime fan of their work, but this song, this song just seems to bring me the sun sonically on a rather dreary cold winter day. The music video’s vibe of laid back grooves match the repeating guitar chords that ties this song to my musical heart.
