It seems iniquitous to single out one band member of The Looneys for the header shot (that’s Chris Holm by the way), but they don’t have a band photograph. For the very good reason that they are a perfect pandemic home band recording today’s song as round-robin.
The Looneys are a grouping of Minneapolis musicians: Chris Holm – vocals, bass guitar, Jillian Rae – vocals, James Gould – guitar, Benjamin Miller – mellotron, backing vocals, and Jason Scabich – banjo, ukelele. And the way ‘Days Crawl By‘ was created was that each added their part to the song individually. The Looneys had started off as an in-person project, but they were ideally set up for the pandemic and when it hit they also came up with this perfect encapsulation of the experience: “And the days crawl by / Is it Monday, is Tuesday, is it Wednesday, Thursday, I don’t wanna know / And the days crawl by / Does it even matter when you got nothing to do, no place to go.”
