MP3: The Voyces – “Let Me Die In Southern California” from the album Let Me Die in Southern California, due September 28 on Planting Seeds/Darla.
Who doesn’t love songs about California? For those of us who don’t actually live there the Golden State holds a mythical place in our collective conscience. Of course, there’s always a jagged edge lurking just below the sheets and so many songs about California end with at least a peak at the less-than-glamorous or idyllic realty of America’s Riviera. The Voyces capture all that well with sun kissed harmonies and double guitar solos for which Glenn Frey and Joe Walsh are probably owed royalties.
