The Neo Psychedelic Folk Swagger Of Workman Song

Many moons ago (read: last July), I had the pleasure of heading out to the Brooklyn Bowl to see Ghost of a Sabertooth Tiger whose concert we were shooting in a cross-promotional tie-in with Cutty Sark whiskey. And I had a blast with GOASTT, but the real surprise of the evening was the opener, Workman Song. A local Brooklyn act, Workman Song had a vibe that was equal parts Rodriguez (Searching For Sugarman), Bruce, and the Dead. Workman Song and Slothrust were the most fun I had last year at shows for openers I'd never heard of before the evening began.

Well, Workman Song has a new single that we couldn't be happier to be premiering today (and they'll be playing a single release show at Mercury Lounge this Wednesday, February 3rd). The new track, "O, To Be In Love Again," confirms my suspicions that Workman Song frontman Sean McMahon might be the biggest Rodriguez fan in America. The mix of folk, psychedelia, and intimate storytelling is a warm invitation for anybody that loved Dylan but wonders what Dylan would have sounded like on about six tabs of acid. Check out the track on Soundcloud above and Bandcamp below, and be sure to head out to Mercury Lounge on Wednesday if you want to have Workman Song's live show blow your mind. I can personally guarantee they'll get the job done.




And also snag our gorgeous concert from Brooklyn Bowl with Workman Song presented by Cutty Sark.
