PAPA :: "Put Me To Work"

Organ and piano conspire in the direction of something dangerous on PAPA's best single yet, "Put Me To Work". Barely longer than 2:30, the arrangement finds its legs in a final movement, including an episodic moment of brief withholding, a breath in the pounding piano and drums before a resumption of the assault. It is a perfect mirror for a lyric about being a "shadow boxing champ" dropped earlier in "Put Me To Work", a late arrangement bob-and-weave, all contained in an outright storm of keys, guitars and percussion.
