With only guitar and a sober percussion, Jim and Sam presents us The Way It Goes (It’s Inevitable) in a Cass McCombs style. The instrumental sounds like the beginning of a jam session between good friends and a bottle of wine. The ones that seem to last forever. But then it reveals to be a very well structured song and when it hits the chorus, the whole song wins a dreamy experimental melody, letting us imagine the old songs of Devendra Banhart or Kurt Vile, including great harmonies of both of the singers. By the way, the vocals are so unique we can truly relate the whole composition to some 90’s and earlies 00’s indie singer songwriters that we all know.
The melody goes so smoothly and whispering during the entire song that even the instrumental added along the track doesn’t increase the noise of it. Instead, it remains flat (in a good way) balancing like a boat across the shore, sounding like a beautiful baby’s lullaby. And like any lullaby of our childhood, this one will be remembered for
Jim and Sam will be presenting their debut album Yeah Whatever Young Forever accompanying William Fitzsimmons in his Mission Bell North American Tour 2019, starting January 6th in Pittsburgh, PA.
