I am always enlivened by an acoustic performance at any BART station in the Bay Area, because sometimes the BART experience can really suck the living shit out of you. Kevin Sullivan of Field Medic (and also Rin Tin Tiger) busks for some his living at BART stations, singing a sad but pretty tune. His new album P E G A S U S T H O T Z is catchy, folky, and will no doubt get you thinking about lovers past and present.
Sullivan speaks of losing sympathy, mulls over impulse and making mistakes, and wonders how it’s just so easy to fuck it all up. On “a pikture of you” I feel like I can even imagine someone laughing with a “stone henge smile” (what a lyric)
P E G A S U S T H O T Z is out on cassette in a limited run of 100 and it sounds like there’s a secret EP on the other side, so run on over to the bandcamp to pick it up! Don’t see any shows for Field Medic at the moment, but I really hope to see him on my commute one of these days.
