Today's featured MP3 is "Riding Coach" by The Takeover UK, a brand-new song available as a free download exclusively on the CP Web site. The local rock band is in the midst of writing and recording new material at its home studio, which you can read more about here.
At their show at Mr. Small's Theatre last Friday, the band played some of its new songs, such as "Across the Car," but not "Riding Coach." Guitarist and vocalist Nic Snyder told me they haven't quite figured out how to play it live yet; capturing the song's layered groove would seem a daunting task with just guitars, bass and drums. Until they solve that puzzle -- and I'm sure they will -- enjoy this sneak peek into the band's musical experimentation.
