My friends in Town Hall have released the first single from their forthcoming LP they’re calling Roots & Bells. Roughly based on Miranda July‘s story “The Swim Team”, the track describes one man’s desire to learn to swim even though he lives in a desert town- and plays out almost like a movie. The vivid descriptions, the catchy melody, and the awesome ending all work together to make the track memorable on its own. However, the fact that the story is about the boy and is told from the point of view of the townsfolk really proves Town Hall’s ability as song writers and keep me on the edge of my seat waiting for the new CD to drop.
