Stream the Debut LP from Quality Used Cars
When I first heard “To Wendy Love Steve,” I’ll admit, I wasn’t sure what to make of Quality Used Cars; Francis Tait has a rather distinctive voice, and I wasn’t sure whether I was on board for it or not. But, when that chorus dropped in, I was stunned, and couldn’t wait for more. Today, we get more as the Good Days/Bad Days is finally available to stream. These feel like the songs you want to accompany your favorite storyteller; the songs have great narratives, wound about these gentle little Americana elements sliding off into the sunny horizon. I’ll admit, it doesn’t have that immediate reward that makes for the thirsty hits of today, but dammit if its not rewarding if you just bathe in the joy of Tait’s songwriting. Grab the LP from Spoilsport Records.
