Been a while since I posted any individual tracks – sorry about that! Coming back at ya with a good one though – the new song & video from Michael Cormier called “Last Hurrah”, coming from his upcoming album More Light!! out June 25 via Oof Records + Dear Life Records.
You know I’m a big fan of an animated video and “Last Hurrah” has logged a notable entry in that canon. The main premise is a bar full of zombies having a raucous karaoke party, but there are two big twists, or reveals, that you need to stay buckled in for. Haven’t seen a video this creative in a long time. Music-wise, it’s some nice Americana-touched folk rock with gently soaring slide guitar in the background and minimal acoustic instrumentation in the foreground. I hate comparisons of course, but Andy Shauf’s The Party comes to mind first, which you know I love. Lyrically, we also know that the ennui of weak friendship and fleeting memories is a big plus for me, so this track nails it. Check out this dang song!
More Light!! is out June 25 via Oof Records / Dear Life Records – pre-order HERE.
