Song of the Week 6/3/11

Dawes - "So Well"

I've grown to like this L.A. quartet after seeing them last year at ACL and playing as part of the amazing Middle Brother show a few months ago. They've played "So Well" at both shows I've seen so far and it's a track where the comparisons to The Band seem spot on. (And I don't even mind that the opening guitar line sounds lifted from "Wish You Were Here.") The entire new album Nothing Is Wrong is definitely on the short list for this year's RT20.

(In doing some YouTube digging, I discovered that they were playing this song 18 months before this album was released. Wow.)
