(disclaimer: in no way do I condone pill popping) This song is a lot more soulful than other ones I’ve posted. As you can tell, the cadence is just a little bit slower but it really works here. I actually just went to a blues show tonight on a whim. It was at this little hole-in-the-wall bar and the band was older. This type of show really makes me remember why I love music. Having now worked in radio, music promotion, and just generally interested in the music industry for some time, I often get stuck in the idea that musicians must always be working to advance — I guess the best measurement of progress being popularity. I have it so ingrained that music is mostly a business when that isn’t true. I really end up forgetting that music for a lot of people is just a hobby and its sole purpose is to make the musician happy and listener feel good. That is a very shallow discussion of my feelings but I’ll spare you all from further tangent.
Alright, sorry about that little rant. That adjective “soulful” makes me think I guess. Enjoy this track — very soulful.
