Record Store Day is upon us, and if you're like me, then you're pretty excited about it. For those of you unfamiliar with this special day, it's dedicated to local record stores, and musicians release special limited edition content. Twin Peaks is getting in on the action with a 7" single, with "In The Morning (In The Evening)" on side A, and this track, "Got Your Money," on side B.

"Got Your Money" is some vintage Twin Peaks. Well, about as vintage as a young band can be. Essentially this track is a toss out from their debut album but has been tweaked since, and I think it's a great track. It actually does sound like a vintage track from the sixties or seventies, a sound that Twin Peaks has been perfecting, as demonstrated on their great album, Wild Onion, released last year.
According to their SoundCloud, this track is inspired by True Romance and current events in our country, though those events are unspecified. There's plenty of smooth guitar hooks, clean drums, and bobbing bass lines. The vocals have a cool delay that sounds not unlike Smith Westerns, and the track builds to some wonderful "oooh ahhhhs," which help the track grow from a sleepy number to one that could get a crowd grooving and dancing.
