Shoebox Money's "Westport" Might Melt Your Heart
Lazy-day melody and meandering, lounge-about guitar licks lace up a load of emotions in Shoebox Money's "Westport".
There's prog feel in frenzied rhythms and poetic depth in lyrics, dynamically intoned.
Words you can't quite fish out...
The hook is stuck. The lure is lost.
Drown what can't be talked about.
"How'd you get so scared to die?"
Walking bass lines evoke Bowie's "The Man Who Sold the World" in the nooks and crannies of "Westport," welding disparate joints of the song's skeleton together to riveting effect.
Bubbly arpeggios arc and curve with ambling grace as drums plot a course for the unknown in cobblestone-skewed steps. "Westport" invites, enchants and enraptures with moments as diverse and unique as a novel's chapters.
There's an air of halting trepidation to the emotions expressed throughout this tune. It's an intimate experience, relayed without haste, but with reason for each rhyme.
There's no point in placing yourself outside of the loop with this one. Shoebox Money have made a truly fascinating track worth exploring here. Click that play button and kick off your shoes.
