Dropper - "Memoirs of Working in a Bowling Alley"

Dropper is the musical project of Andrea Scanniello, who wrote their debut album while working in a bowling alley. This was the obvious inspiration for the band's new single "Memoirs of Working in a Bowling Alley." The new song is a groovy as hell indie rock song with the swagger of early country. It's a little jangly and dripping with the kind of annoyance you can only get from working in a service industry/customer service job. Plus, the song has more than a few moments of pure beauty, and a killer guitar solo. What more are you looking for in a song?

Andrea Scanniello says of the band's new single:

"I’ve spent my entire adult life working in various service industry jobs- some more soul sucking than others. One of these jobs was spraying bowling shoes at the local lanes. “Memoirs” is about working these types of jobs and how at times it makes you question humanity and never want to speak to a soul ever again; that emotional drain that can only be experienced when you’re dealing with shitty drunk people night after night." 

You can listen to "Memoirs of Working in a Bowling Alley" below. Don't Talk to Me (which is also the refrain of "Memoirs of Working in a Bowling Alley) is due out February 11 on Dirt Dog. You can pre-order the album here. For more on Dropper, check out the band's website.
