THE ELECTED on DAYTROTTER
One of my top bands of 2006, The Elected has a session up at Daytrotter. From what I have heard, it is a pretty stripped back, acoustic set.
Setlist as follows with Daytrotter descriptions:
Would You Come With Me
...this song was recorded first...and. set the tone for what was to come next. The band was in fine mode and Sennett seemed to be feeling the songs all over again. The way he whispers “leave right now” gets me every time.
Fireflies in a Steel Mill
Disappearing ink and gold teeth come into play. There’s also a little sexual friskiness with the linens wiped from the bed and onto the floor, where they lie fresh-pressed.
Bank and Trust
It makes me wonder who told him his songs suck. Why the fuck did that? I feel my temper rise each and every time he sings that line.
Not Going Home
At once confused and certain. It’s about wandering and finding home in a lot of places.
