This Ear Worm Of A Tune Arrives From Maverick, A Lovingly Curated Compilation Album Showcasing Tons Of Up-And-Coming DFW Talent.

Drugstore Cowboy — “Sour Patch Kids”
RIYL: assortment, the spice of existence.
What else you have to have to know: This should really truly be 12 Songs of The Working day, as today’s track comes from a compilation album that consists of an array of guest appearances from the planet of DFW songs. But alas, it has to be a single tune, so here’s the one particular that is all Drugstore Cowboy, the duo that place this album together.

In a Spotify playlist world, it is effortless to forget about the days of compilation albums. The accessibility of streaming platforms implies the capacity to curate of a assortment of songs lighting fast (and maybe give some the bogus strategy that they can DJ), but there is one thing to be mentioned about the treatment and time it takes to supply expertise in order to establish up a compilation album. Drugstore Cowboy, a pop-rock duo we’ve created about a couple several years back, put that good get the job done in to respect and emphasize the expertise that can be uncovered in and all around Dallas. Hey, we know a thing or two about that.

Maverick attributes 12 area up-and-coming artists across varying genres, like The Bogart Brothers, Loren Kole, assistance and TwoTwntyToo, to identify just a several. R&B, rap, choice, pop and place are all represented listed here, earning for an LP that has the electrical power to you should any person.

The duo aimed to make a collaborative project that “shines a compact light-weight on the individuality and the promising foreseeable future of DFW,” and they did just that.

It was a tricky feat to try out to choose one of the highlighted artists to spotlight, so we had to go with the types that created it all happen. “Sour Patch Kids” is the only monitor on the album with no visitor artist, so make positive you give the relaxation of the tracklist a listen to get the total, properly-rounded encounter.

“Sour Patch Kids” is designed to be a radio hit. It’s catchy, mood-boosting and straightforward. It virtually would seem like it was formulated to attractiveness to a huge viewers — and we necessarily mean that as a compliment. We’re not stating it is generic-sounding, but alternatively it’s extremely well-produced and has a organization grasp on what can make a pop track a good pop track. It requires you back to a great significant college celebration, or driving rapidly down the freeway on a heat summer time evening with buddies.

Pop receives a terrible rap, and we can fully grasp why, some of it can be really soul-considerably less. But it’s clear a whole lot of creativity and passion went into this. If that’s not obvious to you by this entertaining and free track, it will have to be apparent by the labor of really like that is Maverick.
