Song Premiere: Moot Davis — “Food Stamps”

Juli Thanki | April 14th, 2014

Moot Davis’ new release, Goin’ in Hot (out tomorrow), is aptly titled: just days after mixing was completed, the studio in which he recorded the album burned down. Luckily, nobody was hurt in the blaze and the songs were able to be salvaged from the fire- and water-damaged studio.

Goin’ in Hot, Davis’ fourth album, draws upon several influences, and the music ranges from rock and roll on the title track and “Midnight Train” to country ballads like “Wanna Go Back” and “The Reason,” a sweet song from a son to his mother.

This morning we’re pleased to premiere Davis’ “Food Stamps”:

    Moot Davis deserves much wider success than he’s had thus far. I have a couple of his albums and they are really good

    Not only is this a fun tune with an unusual form but it is politically appropriate for the present times!
