We are truly honored that our new songs are getting some airplay from these two awesome power pop shows! We hope that you’ll be able to tune in!
This single was pretty special for a few reasons… It was a brief reunion with our original drummer, Chris Tarka, who was already out of the band for a couple of years by that point. Our good friend, Ben Gilbert, played saxophone and contributed some backing vocals on “Enjoy Life.” These recordings were produced by Clint Covey (who also produced our self-titled debut album a few years before that). Lesley Katzenmeyer designed the artwork.
Cleveland Scene correctly pointed out that “Enjoy Life” seems to be “Elvis Costello-inspired,” but a touch of vintage rhythm & blues sweetness also shines through thanks in part to Ben’s saxophone playing. “Half a Thought” has a Small Faces soul-pop groove and an outro jam that sounds like early Steely Dan.
We hope you’ll take a few minutes to enjoy this little blast from the past!
