New song: Longriver – Wasting Time

The project of Austin songwriter David Longoria, Longriver’s debut single ‘Wasting Time’ is a direct, occasionally funny, look at procrastination- something we could all do with a little more of! With meandering guitars and creeping hand percussion, Longoria imbibes the fragmented, dreamlike state present in latter day Cass McCombs. While embellished with an organ later on and the odd witty line – “I even got the look of wasting time” – the single for the most part just idles beautifully. It’s easygoing nature reflective of the juvenile-like joy felt at abandoning all responsibilities, so rare in adulthood that it becomes chaste, sacred even. Waves lay ahead, but for now just rock with the tide’s gentle back-and-forth. 

Longriver’s full-length ‘Of Seasons‘ is out September 6th on Hullabaloo Records
