Jam of the Day | Sonny and the Sunsets – Lovin’ On An Older Gal

Back in July, Sonny and the Sunsets magically appeared on my radar, courtesy of fellow SIC blogger, Matt. He wrote about “Too Young to Burn” and its ability to transport him to the west coast, the land of mild summers and easy livin’.

Well, now it’s October, and I am welcoming the season of fall with open arms (and maybe a little ass grab), but today’s JOTD, “Lovin’ On An Older Gal” still sounds right. With a boy-girl spoken intro that reminds me of the opening verse of The New Pornographers’ “Myriad Harbour,” this track isn’t as sparse or melancholy as “Too Young to Burn.” Its loosey-goosey guitars, staccato handclaps, and filling percussion make it perfect for that final barbeque of the year.
