Fittingly named, “Cali in a Cup” is one of those songs that manifests the unique little feelings of summer—that happy-go-lucky attitude which only comes about with relentless sunshine and warmth. This Brooklyn jam band quartet does well to synthesize what you look forward to with every cold winter. The song bounces back and forth urging you to tap your foot and sway your shoulders and a distorted harmonica’s melody refreshingly reminds one of the possibilities of a fresh start. My advice: crank the anthem loud with the windows open for all to hear and a bite-sized morsel of peace will be enough for many, if only for three minutes and twenty-two seconds.
Pick this track up (along with its companions!) on September 18th when Woods drops their seventh LP, Bend Beyond.
