At long last, we have a couple of new songs available for purchase, for you, very patient MJ & the GUs fans. Our new digital single features a pair of new songs of mine that stretch us into some new turf.
How so? The "A side" of "She Puts the Bourbon in Suburban" is our first song about not beer, but whiskey. Yep, a very bold artistic move on our part. A rocking ode to the perils of excessive spirits out in the 'burbs, it's a number we've playing for some time and had been itching to record. So here you go. Maybe there's a Woodford Reserve or Evan Williams Single Barrel whiskey sponsorship in our future?
"Kiss Me" is a throwback mood number that centers around endless aching for the one you need but can't have. Dig the tasteful playing by the GUs and the super tasty solo by our man Zach. Plus it checks off a box on my musical bucket list: "Write and record a Roy Orbison-style drama number."
I hope you dig the songs, thanks for buying them. We recorded these at NFA in Denver — they were recorded and mixed by our man Mario Casilio there.
