The older I get, the more picky I find myself getting with music.
I’m not sure if the overall quality of music has dropped over the years, or my tastes have become more discriminating, but instead of reaching out for what’s new and different, I tend to find myself coming back to some old favorites, and following their every move.
One of those artists is Ted Leo. Whether solo or with his backing band the Pharmacists, Ted mixes just enough punk bravado with the ability to write one heck of a catchy hook. And honestly, I don’t think there’s a single album of his that I don’t love.
So, of course, with his new album coming next year, I’m quite excited to see what he’s got cooking. Which brings us to the above video!
This past week during the CMJ Music Festival in NYC, Ted did a solo acoustic set, where he played some classics, along with new songs. One such new song is “One Polaroid A Day”, and I think it’s the perfect way for you to start your Thursday morning.
Click play, and enjoy. I know I did.
