DOWNLOAD: Title Tracks - Every Little Bit Hurts
Drummers often have what I like to call "the frontman complex." I know this because I am one and used to suffer from it. It can lead to ill-advised dalliances with things like songwriting and singing and playing guitar, which can lead to awful things like this. Sometimes it works, though, like when Q And Not U (sadly) disbanded and drummer John Smith started writing songs in a band called Georgie James. He's since moved on to a solo project called Title Tracks, which will release an album, It Was Easy, on February 23 through Ernest Jenning. "Every Little Bit Hurts" is its sharp, verbose, insanely catchy opener, fitted with accelerating tambourine runs and manimal drum fills.
We're calling it a week right...now.
