Ben Kweller - Fight

“You gotta set your sight on the Lord in your life.” Doesn’t matter if it’s 1949 or 2009, some music styles never go outta fashion. And getting the Lord involved in the nitty gritty of your life has always been the fun way to approach music, love, and gambling. Especially if you have the Lord, a truck driver, some cards and grandma in the same song. Great fun. “I'm like my grandma, short but I stand tall, playing every single card that's dealt to me. You know some days are aces and some days are faces, and some days are twos and threes.” Shoutout for the different flavors Ben and the band offer up in the gentle awareness of the inner life of a child with Hurtin’ You.
