The March Divide “All I Wanna Do Is Laugh” – Listen

The March Divide is the stage name of Jared Putnam and his latest album ‘Anticipation Pops‘ emerged at the back end of August, and revealed in the a musician moving in a different direction.  Unlike his previous three releases Putnam chose to record at home on the fly, skipping his usual demo and pre-production process.  It gives the new music a spontaneous feel that inform his lyrically deft songs.

Between albums Putnam likes to release non-album singles – which brings us neatly to ‘All I Wanna do is Laugh‘ which is one such.  Its wryly humorous as it rolls along a line of self-deprecation with a side-order of I don’t give a damn: “Everybody says they hate me / well pretty soon they’ll learn to miss me / when I’m gone /  don’t worry – I won’t be gone for long“.  Get ready for handclap percussion and harmonica, for it is coming.

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?
