Butch Walker & the Black Widows: “Day Drunk” (2011)

A nice slide guitar riff, a philosophical lyric about growing older, and a cathartic release of a chorus. It’s a simple and effective formula here and elsewhere on the second Butch Walker release to feature his new backing band the Black Widows.

The album’s swaggering, bar-band feel is equal parts roots rock and power pop–a great throwback party band sound.
