We're giving away tickets to see Gomez at the 9:30 Club next Monday, so it only seemed appropriate that we take some time to showcase how this band got to be the Gomez that everyone knows and loves today.
This opening track to Gomez's sophomore effort, Liquid Skin was my entry point into the band (after the mad ravings of some good friends), and it remains one favorite Gomez tracks to this day.
Look under the hood of this song and you'll find every single disaparate element of a Gomez song represented, and in doing so you'll see why their songs, especially on their first three albums work so well as slightly off pop that you can't stop listening to.
Funky? Folky? Rocky? Who knows, but it pleases the ears greatly, so why complain! Be warned though. This one's gonna suck you in.
Gomez - Hangover
Like it? Great! Now go win yourself some tickets!
