On a hunch, exactly a year ago, I went for it and purchased Simple Math. Until that point, I’d enjoyed a handful of songs by Manchester Orchestra. Nothing crazy, though. Then Simple Math happened. First it was the song*, then it was the whole collection. Just a bonkers album. Enjoyable from start to finish. I spent a lot of time in the car last summer…and this album rode shotgun (don’t worry, I didn’t forget you, Explosions in the Sky and Bon Iver, you were there, too).
If you haven’t heard, here. If you have, perhaps it’s time to listen again and relive 2011 for a moment…
