Drift Mouth “The Book Of Allison” – Listen

From left to right in the picture above you see drummer, lead guitar and bass player for Americana power trio Drift Mouth.  They have their second album ‘Loveridge is Burning‘ coming out soon, and ‘The Book of Allison‘ is the lead single from it. 

This is a relationship stalling, and it has Lou Poster singing with frustration “you got me hanging on your every little word like a book I can’t put down / Kinda wonder how long I can hold my breath waiting on you to come around again / but the pages just ain’t turning Allison.”

It’s a strong image that Lou Poster expanded on “You know that feeling when you get partway through a book and just lose interest and can’t finish it?  This song tells the story of a relationship that feels like that.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
