Daytrotter a Day #45: Thomas J. Speight (Released 01.30.14)
Dear aspiring singer-songwriters, how many goddamn songs do we need about willow trees? His guitar-playing is fine. His voice is okay. But willow trees? Really? The woman accompanying Speight has a better voice than he does. I'd rather listen to her, expecting that she'd write better lyrics. In "Better Off Without You," Thomas finally realizes he's better off without his ex. I guarantee she's better off without you too, buddy.
