The latest song from Miss Tess is a blend of original rock and roll vibes blended with some downbeat country feelings in the kitchen of a honky-tonk with aspirations to being a Diner. The swish of the waitresses’ skirts as they bring a burger and fries to a table that needs whisky, or at very least a beer, is captured in the gently swaying accompaniment to Miss Tess’ world-weary vocal.
‘The Moon is an Ashtray‘ is a tongue-in-cheek metaphor for things going wrong and dreams shattering. Fly me to the moon? With all that dust and rock and not enough oxygen to light a cigarette? I don’t think so – if you’re looking for disappointment one can always just go home….or pick over this sad excuse for a burger.
