Remember when Animal Collective were writing incredible pop songs that had everyone salivating? Well, I think you’ll find something similar in the music of John Dragonetti aka Jack Drag. The very first vocal entrance creates this soaring melody that immediately had me fawning for sunshine; it’s strange how a simple melody can transport you, but such is the power of this song. It also probably doesn’t hurt that Aimee Mann, a friend of John’s, had a hand in this tune, as did Dylan Gardner. Really, none of that even matters as the hook of this track supersedes everything else before you today. Look for the new LP, 2018, in September via Burger Records.
Everybody’s doing it! I’m a follower! Mostly I just wanted something to do while food prep is going on about the house. So, I’ve looked through this year’s LPs, determined which ones I played the most. These lists are arbitrary, so there’s no sequencing as of now…just my favorites, thus far in 2018. I’ve even included a playlist too!
