today i have another song for you from swedish alt-country songwriter jonas carping's new album 'cocktails & gasoline', due out on october 7th. i dig this song quite a bit.
it combines musical restraint with swelling dynamics in a way that reminds me of the best aspects of U2 filtered through an americana lens. listen for the drop-out verse with the phil spector/'be my baby' drum beat.
pre-order 'cocktails & gasoline' here. (that'll get you a free download of 'damn old world')
