From the indie loathing department comes today’s free mp3, “The Same Tattoos,” by Fences.
It’s got a cool, wintry introspective vibe. With good reason. Consider the opening verse and chorus:
I was born in the same town as you
Hell, I even think we have the same tattoos
My mother hates it when i smile
And she sees you coming through me
Like a sunshine through thin glass
It’s not like you were really gone gone gone gone
But you were
And I never felt love
It’s rather easy to see why this song wasn’t free on, say, Father’s Day.
And yet …
And yet it’s still good. It’s good enough to buy. But now, you don’t have to.
