Once again it was the name that forced me to hit play. Nothing more. And what came out was this lo-fi meandering, murmuring melancholy track that’s not nearly as depressing as the Asheville, North Carolina-based band’s name would suggest. It’s not necessarily uplifting, either. Kinda murky. Or, as I try to recall what life was like a quarter of a century ago when I worked 9-5ish Monday through Friday, kinda like a Thursday.
The song only has eight lines of which my two favorite are:
jesus died on the cross so i could quit my job
I like the sound. That said, I don’t think I want to explore what it took for Mat Cothran, Delaney Mills and Michael Roberts to get where they are. Some things are better left in the past. But I do like where they’re headed.
