Almost three years ago to the day, my very first post on this here blog was a Jam of the Day featuring “Despicable Dogs” by Small Black. That song, and the band, still hold a bit of magic for me. It was the first time I’d communicated with a band to procure an MP3 for posting, since there was little to no Soundclouding and Bandcamping done in those days. I felt like a big shot. Hell, I am a big shot, right? Look at me now!
So it’s very fitting to post “Free at Dawn” as our Jam of the Day today. It’s definitely JOTD-worthy material – chill and and seemingly poised for a beat-breakout that never quite happens. You can totally imagine this being the soundtrack for the title sequence of Drive 2…if they were to make a sequel that is.
Check it out below and pre-order their new LP, Limits of Desire, here.
