Songs of The Day

Flu The Coop:  Oh yay, the extra funkiness has returned!  This is a really good tune, really nice groove to it.  This was the "in-your-face" feel I was looking for with yesterday's tracks.  It's also got a darker feel than the rest of the tracks, which gives it a unique sound to the album.  The build-up in the beginning is pretty dope, they bring it up nicely.  These guys are just so tight, which is an ability that seems to be lacking in the majority of today's popular bands - glad to see it's still around.  Horns sound awesome, but there's no surprise there.  I really dig the hits on this one, the way they're placed throughout the band give the meter a really cool feel.  Both the sax and keys solos were on point - really, really good.  I do with the track was shorter though, but that's all.  So solid.

4 On 6:  For those of you who don't know, "4 On 6" is a Wes Montgomery tune, but you wouldn't really be able to tell by Lettuce's arrangement.  They keep the melody, but the majority the hits and chord changes are different.  But I guess that's part of the beauty in covering tracks - you get to make them your own.  Lettuce gave this track a brighter sound than the original, which I like.  I really like the soft feel of the keys on this one, they sound very sweet.  This isn't a stand out track, but it's still really good.
