Yep, another day, another hit for Undertow Records. I don’t know what it is, but they have their finger on my record collection at the moment, offering up a new tune from David Bazan. He’s continuing his output with an electronic backbone, using a simplistic loop to create space for his introspective pondering. I like how the tones of the musical notes seem to match the deeper bits of Bazan’s voice, and of course, it’s always great to hear how David looks at the world…especially his world. Care, the title of the new LP, will be released on March 7th, and you better believe I’ll have it in a matter of hours!

Looks like I’m just going to listen to Undertow Records for the entirety of the year 2017. They’ve got the new David Bazaan, The New Year and this great new LP from Will Johnson. On his latest single, I can’t help but be nostalgic about being a Texan; it’s a pride that runs deep…and whether Will means it or not, he’s captured that. I can hear myself playing with friends in the yard as music plays in the distance, or studying for school while my dad’s record collection plays through the walls in the other room; there’s bending strings, extra orchestration and of course, Johnson’s croon.Something about this song just feels like home. Hatteras Night, a Good Luck Charm comes out via the label on March 24th.
