Back in February, I posted a video of the live performance of JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound performing “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart” live in the local St. Louis KDHX studios. More specifically, I wrote about my absolute glee perpetuated by the band’s release of this superb, soul-infused Wilco cover. Two months later, I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough.
Well, today the band announced the premiere of the official video for the song, and let me just say, it oozes cool. Please do me a solid and play this at your next party. Pretty please?
Further good news for St. Louisians: the band will take part in this year’s Twangfest presented by KDHX for a “garage soul showcase” on June 11th with Those Darlins and Detroit Cobras. Advance tickets are available now through Ticketmaster.
The 7″ single is available on Rabbit Factory and iTunes. Get it while the gettin’s good.
