Stunned that InkSlinger4 doesn't see the obvious differences in this version. There are synths, acoustic guitar (any Nilsson fan should be able to recognize the nod to "Everybody's Talkin" in the acoustic fingerpicking), the tempo is faster...and if that isn't different enough AM even added a descending chord progression to the end of the song. Harry would approve : )
Another glass from the distillery.
AM again manages to take his affinity for folk, pop, soul, latin and soundtrack music and come out the other side with an album that touches these colors while remaining simple, melodic and groovy. He knows what he likes and lays it out in the open. From the direct and catchy 'Me and my Arrow" to the Neil Young-esque 'Love Is A Simple Plan', AM's new collaboration with drummer/producer Joey Waronker shows that his bucket is diverse and his well is healthy. This material is a natural extension of his 'Future Sons and Daughters' craft with the electro-stylings of AM & Shawn Lee's 'Celestial Electric'. Waronker provides seamless grooves that are strong and subtle and his vibes are deep and interesting. Can't wait to take a drive to this record.
AM does it again!
I consider myself to be a huge music fan and fan of AM's but have to admit that I had never heard of the song, Me and My Arrow until now. While I am sure the original is great, with something that sounds so fresh, clean and modern as this, for me, there isn't any reason to go off and listen to the original now. AM does it again with a combination of perfect music and great vocals. A perfect song to relax to in the dog days of summer for sure!
