Because Songs Matter


What a strange week it’s been. I needed the time off. I might have needed more but when there is a new Joey Kneiser EP to be streamed…well. As they say, duty calls.

I’ve spent a lot of time the past month or so with Glossary’s latest effort, Long Live All Of Us using it’s optimism as a crutch when I lacked any. Midnight For The Graveyard Heart doesn’t possess the same optimism in spite of the world feel but it doesn’t wallow either. Joey sums it up best himself when he said, “I wanted something that felt dark without being macabre. There needed to be a spark of hope even in the desperate of places.”

Personally, I think he pulled it off spectacularly.

As with Joey’s other solo album, The All-Night Bedroom Revival, every instrument you hear on Midnight For The Graveyard Heart was played and recorded by Joey back home in Murfreesboro. The album will “officially” be released tomorrow but the This Is American Music folks have given us a stream to host for y’all today.

I hope you like it as much as I do:

    The other day, apparently from that party in Arkansas that we all wish we were attending, Cory Brannon tweeted about Glossary being the best band going. Are you gonna look Cory in the eye and call him a liar because I’m not. And this EP right here is icing baby, pure icing.

    We saw Joey play some of these over the weekend in Arkansas (which was amazing). Every time I see a Glossary related release all I can think is “Shut up and take my money!!!”
