♫♪  Sat. Nite Duets - Smoke Local Twine

The first taste of Sat. Nite Duets in over two years, Smoke Local Twine is a welcome return for the Midwest rockers. Their last release, Air Guitar, was as close to a “perfect” record as you can get, and this three track EP picks up where they left off, and expands on and builds their power-pop sound for those discerning 2018 ears. Where their earlier material played on slacker alt rock tropes, with lyrics that explored the dynamic between becoming an adult while still drinking beers and going to weeknight shows, Smoke Local Twine is a little darker and, dare I say, rawer?

Gone are the endless summer days, working part time and drinking brews on the porch with your dawgs, not worried about being hungover; in its place is the need to get a good night’s sleep before tomorrow’s staff meeting, unironically listening to soft rock, and getting your credit score up to lease the new Ford Taurus. Dig deep into the stream below, as you ponder the spreadsheet of monthly figures staring back from your screen, since you’ve got to have them figured out before the end of business.
