Daytrotter a Day #15: St. Paul & the Broken Bones

Sorry, but a job interview, taxes, and busy concert schedule had me in the weeds for a bit.  Watch me churn out three of these now.  If you don't know what Daytrotter is, buy an annual membership and fall in love.

Daytrotter a Day #15: St. Paul & the Broken Bones (Released 04.15.13)

When the electric guitar riff kicked off "Half the City," I thought to myself, "Oh great, another thing that sounds like everything else."  Seconds later came the horns.  Then Paul Janeway's soulful voice.  Each time I heard the guitar lick again, it sounded better and better.  They slow it down a bit for "Broken Bones & Pocket Change," Janeway embellishing his vocals like Aaron Neville, but who honestly hates Aaron Neville?  Towards the song's end, he loses his shit.  I can imagine seeing it live and the crowd cheering.  I have to admit that the initial surprise had worn off by the last two songs, but I'm definitely interested.
