David Jacobson – “A Song for Kelly Biro (Goodbye)”

David Jacobson

Vintage rock ā€˜nā€™ roll warmness was evident on David Jacobson’s track “8 A.M.”, featured a few months back. It served as a great opener to David Jacobson and the Space Wizards’ new eponymous 5-song release. That release’s closer, “A Song for Kelly Biro (Goodbye)”, is also very worthwhile, a six-minute epic that showcases the group’s musicianship and developmental prowess. The vocals – which resemble parts Neil Young and Kurt Vile in their timeless groove – take occasional pause for fleeting guitar demonstrations, like the excellent showcase beginning around 03:30. The repeating chorus soars, packing a suave hook each time. Once again, the nostalgia of classic-rock from Jacobson’s high school days and the jam-band aesthetic of his later college years are both on full display.
