When listening to an artist for the first time, I will usually try to compare them to an artist I am familiar with. With the singer/band Goodtime Goodtimes, there are many names that come to mind. Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Tim Buckley, and Mic Christopher. One quality all those artists have is the ability to help you relate to the music by reminding you of real life situations, such as lost love and pain. I was struck by the same feelings when listening to Goodtimes Goodtimes and was instantly hooked. A lyric in the song “Kids” goes: “I was born to let you know I love you”, and anyone who has ever been in love knows exactly how that feels and how personal that lyric is. I’ve enjoyed what I’ve heard so far from this artist and look forward to hearing more in the future, hopefully you’ll agree as well. Here are a few songs to sample, if you like them be sure to consider buying the CD titled “Glue”. I will provide a link at the bottom of this post.
