Why do we like this?

I feel that before you listen to this, you should know how this song with the funky title came to be:

“Victor Bockris is a writer who was part of the 70's downtown art/punk scene in New York. He and Warhol superstar Gerald Malanga wrote a book called ‘Uptight: the Velvet Underground Story’ that I came across at some point growing up in suburban Philadelphia, and read to death. ‘Uptight’ led me to ‘Transformer’, a Lou Reed biography that Bockris wrote, and ‘What's Welsh for Zen’, John Cale's autobiography co-written with Bockris. In the days before widespread internet, information, stories and photographs of this stuff was tough to come by, so Victor Bockris was a lifeline for me. The song includes all sorts of romanticism of the past, celebration of obscurity and poetic oblivion.”

 

After that, there's not much more to say other than the song is good. 

Vocals are clear and sit in the perfect space in front on the mix. The drums are gritty and feel super retro along with the entire vibe of the song. It feels like something heard back in the 1950's doo-wop era 

It's mellow, it's a pleasant listen with a pleasant vocal, and it will easily carry you into having a very calm day.
