Slam Donahue :: "C'mon C'mon"

Rooted in a shambling acoustic guitar progression that feels lifted from a Spoon cut, Slam Donahue's latest, "C'mon C'mon" is their most urgent and needy track yet. Lyrics wax philosophical about loving the chase, an urgent plea to "talk about this," while the undercurrents still secretly hope for something unrequited. It is a divided if not entirely incoherent meditation. "I want to lose you and then pursue you," confides second verse, as a the break-beat arrangement flexes and breathes underneath. The final plea is to "talk about this," a thoughtful aside for a band who primarily has produced carefree, party-first jams. This, in the final analysis, a love song for the kids who have been out too late and loved too little.
