The Main Drag "A Jagged Gorgeous Winter"

Exactly what makes this song rather brilliant is a bit of mystery, to me at least. The winter steals from you, it’s true – days, and the song’s refrain is, “Nights filled with longer hours.” It begins with a whispered phrase, and the upbeat kids take over from there, shouting “Hey!” while voices sing the aforementioned refrain. There’s a pause, the potential for a bit of a pretentious schizophrenic quiet moment, which is happily circumvented. There’s even a section towards the end with the same potential, which is again avoided. It’s like The Main Drag took a dose of some good advice: taking risks doesn’t mean being stupid. Or, if you’re talking about music, simply awful.

Just the facts: The Main Drag hails from Boston, and makes electro-rock, or something of the sort. Being able to make up words here is a relief, I already have papers to write.
