Rocker Tycoon Day: Desserter by Government Jobs

leave a comment »

Illinois, Carbondale Government Jobs After back to back nights of seeing Government Jobs on their tour, I had two things stuck in my head.  The first was urge to do some traveling.  Their EP just makes me feel like doing 90 MPH down the Pennsylvania Turnpike.  The second was was the  song from the BIG SWING PEOPLE EP, Desserter.  It starts unassumingly then blasts out of the gate!  Singer/Guitarist, Brett Haley (Bill Haley… any relation?) has a singular voice that you don’t hear often in the rock genre, a welcome change.  Steady yet sometimes subtlety intricate Drums by Marcus Mader coupled with  Bass and Guitar by David Allen and Matt McGuire, respectively, adds that pinch of salt and dash of pepper that make this punchy tune come alive.  It’s almost hard to believe that these guys aren’t from the New Brunswick Scene.  The dead end finish is a nice touch as well.
