Buffalo Tom has always been one of my favourite bands. Even though they’re still gigging (mostly in the Boston area) their last release was the excellent Skins in 2011.
This song (from 1995’s Sleepy Eyed) popped into my head this morning as I left the house to some very chilly fall-like weather. It’s called Summer, but there’s something melancholic and bittersweet about it, two things that Bill Janovitz knows well.
It’s definitely a fall song for me.
“Summer’s gone a summer song
You’ve wasted every day, every day
Summer’s gone, wipe it off my hands
Write it in the sand, in the sand”
