Listen to the song here.
I really love writing this column because I am an expert offender at playing a song over and over again to a point most people would call “insane” but I call “love.” One time, when I used to sit in the editorial offices, I was listening to Leonard Cohen’s “So Long, Marianne,” for about an hour and Charles Mudede yelled at me from his next-door cubicle, “ARI SPOOL! I LOVE LEONARD COHEN, BUT THIS IS REALLY TOO MUCH!” I was listening on my headphones, but I guess Charles has really good hearing.

I keep a mental list in my head of the songs that I have been listening to on repeat, and then write them down next to the weeks that are my turn to do the column. I have like three lined up. They are all amazing songs. Trust me, I know. I get excited.

“Seems Like Home to Me” is the opening track off of Two Gallant’s new EP, The Scenery of Farewell, and I think it’s the strongest track on the record. It starts in this really anthemic way,
“Baby, let your light shine on me/ When I’m lost on the road/ You know you could set me free/You could ease my load/Days get so dark/I can’t hardly see/I’ve been gone so long/Seems like home to me.” After that part, some guitar starts in, and then another verse, and then the drums come in, “thump thump thump.” And then, at the end, a bunch of other people start singing along in the studio, and at the end the other people clap and a piano rings out one chord. Just listen to it. And then listen to it again, and again, and again.

Ari, I fucking HEAR you man. Kinda blocked the Two Gallants vibe out for awhile, but this EP kicked my ass into next month. I'm stuck in smoggy LA, but heeding the siren call of TG's on Market St, hopefully they will ease my load. Such amazing tunes. Good lookin' out.
