Happy Monday! It’s Adam, and I’m here to share Chris Staples‘ “Dog Blowing A Clarinet” as my DJ pick this week. I fell in love with his single “Golden Age,” so I decided to dig further into the album with the same name.
Staples’ songs are, in the tradition of the best songwriters, fantastically economical. No moment is wasted, no idea indulged beyond necessity. Instrumental breaks occur but don’t linger, serving their purpose and slipping quickly back into verses. Check out “Dog Blowing A Clarinet” at your leisure and let us know what you think! Golden Age is available everywhere now on Barsuk Records.
