Song Title: Little Dipper
Artist: Good Weak
Good Weak is a post-punk band from Monroe, NY. It is a band that has essentially formed out of the ashes of a once great indie-punk group known as No Dice, Chicago.
This track starts off with such a fucking nice groove that is gradually assembled. It comes in with just bass and drums to start. The bassline to this track has this nice funky riff that grabs your attention, all with the drums bouncing around the track with a nice ghost note beat. Then, as the guitar kicks in it casually glides across the now more complete instrumental. The feeling of the track is also just so smooth. When I listen to this song I feel like I’m walking down the street and I’m the coolest guy on the block (Of course, I never am).
When this track ultimately picks up, the result is really unexpected. It breaks into this loud and bombastic blast of energy. At first it kind of turned me off from the song because I felt the track was almost schizophrenic in its nature. Initially, it seemed to me that the two sections of the song did not mesh well. The essence of the beginning was so casual it just didn’t seem to fit the Chalk Talk-like intensity of the latter half of the song. However, after a couple more listens it REALLY started to grow on me. I began to fully appreciate the song, and even found it stuck in my head multiple times. The lyrics to this song honestly embed themselves into your brain.
I friekin’ love this song, and I hope they play a show soon. Take a few listens and see if you’re into it. And if you are, you really should check out their demo//ep//thing because there are other great tracks on there (SPOILER ALERT: if you download it, there’s an awesome hidden track). To make one final comment: TJ is better than you at drums.
