In the meantime, the group has also unleashed a new single. It's an old song, actually. And even though "Michael J. Foxworthy," which dates all the way back to 2010, won't appear on the new record, the song holds some special significance for Small Reactions, as it was born of a time when the group's members found themselves recovering from an ill-conceived and short-lived breakup.
As drummer Sean Zearfoss explains in the single's liner notes:
"More than anything, this song is the sound of release. Being in a band is quite possibly the hardest yet most rewarding relationship I've ever been a part of. This song is like a love note to that experience. I mean, it's not even my favorite one of our tunes, but that's also totally irrelevant, I think."
As with pretty much everything else Small Reactions has done, "Michael J. Foxworthy," which is an outtake from the "Nerve Pop" b/w "Teaser Trailer" and "Sudden Walks" 7-inch, was recorded at the Cottage by Luciano Giarrano, and mixed and mastered by John Rosser.
Small Reactions, Iron Jayne, and On Holiday (ft. former members of This Piano Plays Itself) play the Cottage on Fri., March 8. Free (donations accepted). 9 p.m. 1300 Skyhaven Road. 770-815-2084.
Their show with Chris, Lord about 3 years at the Unicorn was the best.
I am a connoisseur of this real soul music like the comment above I'm glad…
You've got a few of my faves listed here, plus a bunch I've never heard…
This is such a cool idea and the performance is great (I've been twice) but…
Ugliest bunch of girls I've ever seen.
