"On My Mind" by The Outdoor Type
Zack Buchanan is The Outdoor Type. It's true -- it says so on his Facebook page. But more important than his implied rugged demeanor and skill in building a fire in the wilderness, Zack is an excellent songwriter and musician. We first featured his music a year ago (link) to feature his shimmering "Are You Happy", a wonderful tune with a '70s country rock vibe. Last April we featured "When The Sun Goes Down" (link), an equally good post punk song, and a month later featured his debut EP (link). So I guess you could say we favor the outdoor type.
Zack is back again with "On My Mind", which takes a scrappy, bouncy, but thoroughly engaging song with hints of Lou Reed (not completely an original thought on my part) and a bit of The Clean.
