Savage Young Taterbug has been a favorite around here back since his Night People Tapes days and its nice to see a new single eke out from Charles Free this week. As always the Taterbug is shrouded in shadow, and “Dropping Splinter into Baby’s Palm” is a contemplative crooner that seems to come from the walls themselves. There’s a bit of a country calm to the song and it saunters out of the speakers on Free’s bullfrog twang. Cobwebs of hiss blanket the song as the melody gently lulls us all into a sense of ease. The new single is out via Minneapolis imprint Lighten Up Sounds at the end of the month on digital and limited 7” single.
