The Woolly Bushmen have been trucking around Orlando for some time now. The first time I saw them was like four years ago at this really small, shitty bar across the street from UCF. I had just moved to Orlando and was dipping my toes into Orlando’s musical cesspool. That night, I did my best Pulp Fiction-style “dance” moves, while The Bushmen ripped through a set of tunes that sounded like something right off of the Pulp Fiction Soundtrack. That bar, along with the rest of the douche-filled clubs in that strip, is long gone, but The Bushmen are still kickin’. Proof: they’ve just dropped a new song, “Weepin’ Eyes.”
On “Weepin’ Eyes,” I imagine the light organ line accompanying me on a stroll down a long boardwalk. As it keeps a steady pace, Simon Palombi promises the girl he loves solace after her lover deserts her, only to be left alone in his own puddle of tears. Sorrow has never sounded so summery. Enjoy.
