Every once in a great while I listen to the radio while driving. (It’s been more recently for some reason, as observed by my hearing that Damien Jurado song sometime last month.) This song came on the other day just as I was getting home, and I raced inside to finish listening, and then – in a move reminiscent of my 13 year old self – I called the radio station to find out what it was.
Clem Snide now registers just two songs in my extensive iTunes library. (The other being “Moment In the Sun,” which was used as the intro to the TV show Ed for exactly one season. I liked that show a lot.) This one is a fuzzy, easygoing stunner. It meanders, wandering in and out of a lovesick daze – and subsequently in and out of my brain for the past few days with its dusty Americana.
