This week’s track is Come Back Down by Greg Laswell. Until last week I’d heard nothing of Laswell and this song randomly came showed up when shuffling around a couple of music blogs. Apparently he’s a relatively prolific singer/songwriter but this song is less “folk-y” and much more pop-rock. Sara Bareilles adds in a very dark verse against a pulsing guitar-drum-and-piano line and it totally works. It’s a beautiful song and the lyrics also feel out of place (“you gotta take it on your own from here / it’s getting pathetic and i’m almost done / here”) with how upbeat the song sounds — and again, it totally works.
