Rocketship Park – Run Away

By • Jun 11th, 2008 • Category: Folk, Indie, Music, Rock

I spotted NPR the other day. They totally side-swiped me with the killer track “Runaway“.

Here’s some of what they had to say…

“Run Away,” easily the album’s catchiest track, features an eclectic arrangement including pump organ, glockenspiel, coronet and trombone surrounding Kaufman’s signature twangy croon. The short and sweet two-minute pop song showcases the band’s ability to craft musically unique tracks that sport catchy melodies and strong lyrics, while still showing off the band’s relaxed approach.

The band remind me vaguely of Wilco (just me… don’t worry about it to much) with their almost Sixties arrangements and production. I find myself thinking about backyard jams and session from way back and that’s the feel Rocketship Park seem to capture.

Highly Recommended
