Porchsleeper

 

continued

These guys are either recovering assholes or great liars. In the ballad "If I Told You," they sing about basically stalking an ex-lover and lament, "Now I know I let you down every time I slept around." But I hung out with these guys after the show, and they're polite as choirboys and obviously devoted to their wives. Either way, their songwriting brings back delightfully painful memories of what it was like before the kids and mortgage — drinking and crying and fighting and drinking and making up — all set to catchy, driving, unpretentious, and unapologetic rock.

I can honestly say there wasn't a song in that set that I didn't like. Better yet, Porchsleeper's back-to-basics drinkin' and cheatin' heartbreak college rock put me in the mood

for some trouble. I don't know about you, but in my midlife, diaper-changing, stable life, there is some room for drinking and cheating and crying and drinking and making up. So serve it up, turn it up, and don't blame me in the morning.
