Soft Reeds :: "This Affair"

Soft Reeds released their debut record, Soft Reeds Are Bastards this morning and offer the expansive, "This Affair" for your preview pleasure. In one of the most candid and devastating lyrics of the year, singer, Ben Grimes notes, "I'm getting tired of this affair/and now you've gone and done that to your hair." Like the roots of most failed relationships, it is simple, crushing and detail heavy. The arrangement is a stomping bit of 4/4 rock, replete with buzzing keys and enough guttural, "heys" to ball your fists and squint your eyes. Put another way, this might be the most frustrated thing to come out of Kansas City since George Brett was told about the pine tar on his bat.
