The New Rags – “Gotta Get Out of Here” mp3
With a delightfully distorted electric piano and a soaring organ lead track removing any need for bass or guitar, The New Rags’ tight vocal harmonies are given a lovely frame in which to shine. Underneath, you have this calamitous drum track that sounds like Keith Moon playing in XTC, approximately. Lyrical catharsis abounds in this youthful leave-town-for-heck-knows-where anthem. It’s ragtime music for the twenty-nothings! Original, fully realized, and fun.
