I was supposed to get ahead yesterday, but I didn't. Monday night, I made a list of tracks I needed to listen to and sort, and the idea was to get 4-5 days ahead so I could have a day off from music. But it all went to shit when I started listening to Jake Rollins sneaky excellent new LP, Spend A Few, Make A Few. Honestly, that list can wait another day because I have to share with you my favorite song on the album because you might miss it.
Last tracks are sometimes overlooked, but, dammit, with a killer string-bending riff and a catch phrase like "When you fool around, you'll always get found", it won't be forgotten. When an artist works out their problems with a pen, paper and a guitar pick, we're all in for a fun familiar ride, the more head bobbing and foot stomping the better. 'Fool Around' is one of the strongest final tracks I've heard in a while, and is a hit regardless of its order on the LP.
The album is being offered up by Aimless Skylarking favorites 80N7 Records for free on Bandcamp, but don't be a cheapskate, do as Jake says, "Spend a Few". Join me in streaming 'Fool Around', it's my Song of the Day!
