It's always a joy to find an artist that puts their own spin on the whole singer/songwriter thing, and Margaret Glaspy is one of those artists. Her latest single, "Act Natural," has a whole 90's alt-rock singer/songwriter thing with a touch of the loud/quiet/loud thing and guitars that alternate between jangly and crunchy. Plus, Glaspy injects a little something that reminds me of Tom Waits. I can't quite explain it, but it's definitely there. (At least to me it is...) "Act Natural" is a fun and creative rocker infused with some 90's alt-rock goodness. It's going to be pretty near impossible to resist.
Margaret Glaspy says of her new song:
“‘Act Natural’ is about trying to play it cool when you meet someone remarkable. I wrote it in the afternoon in the back of a tour bus and the riff came separately when I got home. It is one of my favorite songs on the record to play live."
