Swear Jar

Today's songs that I would like to share with you come from my "casual swearing" collection, where each of these tracks was labeled explicit on Spotify and Apple Music, often because of a single swear word that I wrote into a verse for emphasis. 

It's called artistic license, damn it. Yeah, that's right. I said damn. Take that, the man. 

These songs also all happen to come from my 2017 album Good Night, Fahrenheit. I won't include embedded links to the lyrics of each song this time. I'll let you see if you can find the naughty words all by yourself. I guess the main thing is to not let them corrupt you. 

The first track is called Life Preserver. It's about always wanting to save the people you love. This may be my best example of dad rock yet. It also contains one of my favorite guitar solos that I personally have recorded. Now that I think about it, that might even add to the whole dad rock thing, as does my purposeful wielding of the f-bomb.   

Track number two is called Carry On. It's about getting through it, whatever it may be. 

The third track that I am sharing with you today is called Modern Inconveniences. It's about bullshit; I'll let you unpack it from there. In addition to spotting the only swear word in this song (but not this article), you get a bonus point if you can find the allusion to the work of French philospher Guy Debord.

Thanks again to everyone who has been listening to and sharing my music, particularly my tracks Original Miles and Black Ribbon Day, which have really been taking off in recent weeks. I am humbled and honored. 

Enjoy the music. Share it with your friends and add it your playlists if you dig what I'm doing. As always, thank you for supporting independent art.
