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.
