New Artist Alert: Southside American, "Angel of the Night"
Tue, 01 Oct 2013 15:51:43
ARTISTdirect discovered this rad new act Southside American, which is the brainchild of Benjamin Sweet, and we wanted to share the song "Angel of the Night." It's got a lived-in vibe, with the harmonicas, and it reminds us of rootsy American music. Think Bruce Springsteen or Lucero...sort of!
The song is from the new EP In Our Keystone State, out now. [iTunes link]
"The idea for 'Angel' came to me one night when I was walking through the second floor of my house around dusk. I looked up to see a bunch of black and white photographs of various family members, going back four generations. I suppose the song is a mediation on the fact that each one of us writing just one chapter of a much larger story, and that our time is finite and precious," said Sweet.
New music first...always at ARTISTdirect.
