Maybe You Can Win?!?!
Band: The Runnies Free mp3: “You Can’t Win” (’til Feb. 26) A song review like this one happens so infrequently on Chicago Tunes that I needed to backtrack some to research how I went about writing and formatting it the one and only other time. That post, uploaded over a year ago, was a celebration of U.S. Royalty’s “Equestrian,” a tune that hit and profoundly affected me at a time that I apparently wanted to hear it. What’s funny about singly digesting “Equestrian” then and “You Can’t Win” now isn’t that I’m doing so by picking through separate pieces of their respective assemblies. (This is, however, true. Whereas the “Equestrian” piece was an exploration of possible messages in the lyrics of U.S. Royalty, “You Can’t Win” gets its own posting today because it’s groovy as hell). The funny, then, is how stylistically different “Equestrian” is from “You Can’t Win.” Any lingering suspicions I may have had about the level of satisfaction I’ve lately received from garage/psych/punk or any loose combination of the three is surely gone now. I might be hooked or be there very soon. continue reading . . . (source: http://chicagotunes.net/)
