Your Friday Jam: Losing Side of Twenty-Five

In a matter of a few hours I will be heading out for some live music – a band introduced to me by my brother just this year.  American Aquarium out of North Carolina possesses a gritty, roots rock sound that meshes perfectly with tobacco and alcohol – specifically cigarettes and brown liquor.

Apparently they considered calling it quits just a few short years ago.  The band was unable to gain much traction outside of a small group of loyal followers, and with hardly enough cash to support themselves the members went into the studio for what they thought was going to be their last album.  Turns out Burn.Flicker.Die. actually sold, and American Aquarium came back with another album earlier this year.

I have never seen them live, but have heard that it is quite the experience and am very much looking forward to rocking out with them this evening.  Before I do, please enjoy “Losing Side of Twenty-Five”, from their latest album Wolves.
