Rolling into track four of Torchsongs, the whole sound world takes a huge shift with the addition of a couple of moody electric guitar lines. In that moment, you might find yourself suddenly transported downtown, maybe in some dive, dancing with your high school girlfriend ten years after the fact. It’s new and old and mostly cool but the nostalgia weighs a little. So pull her in tight and lament what you will. But this is life, this is just how things have played out. So far.
