(Sevens, a recurring feature on Aquarium Drunkard, pays tribute to the art of the individual song.)
The muse that is ‘Summer’s end’ has long served as an allegory for countless pieces of prose, poetry and, of course, song. From the Beach Boys to Don Henley (“Boys of Summer,” anyone?), the bittersweet transition from the warm, stereotypically carefree, months of the season into Autumn are often tinged with a touch of nostalgia and/or melancholy. Palace Brothers “Gulf Shores,” culled from the Mountain EP, finds the narrator (Oldham) lamenting the end of the vacation…”All our friends have gone away from here, so let’s disappear from sight.” It’s dropped a good 15 degrees here in Los Angeles in the past 24 hours. Time to cue up those Fall jams.
