Last Friday, Bossy and her friend Martha played afternoon hooky and went to another free concert in the city — this time the band was Annuals.
They were young and broody and talented, even if Bossy thinks it’s slightly unnerving when a band fails to stick a The on the front of their name.
This is one of their songs, Sore, which is worth the download just to hear the drummer Stir the Soup. It’s a broody tune that layers sounds in a way that’s more mature than the band members’ combined years. Somehow the song makes Bossy cry cry cry. It also sort of reminds Bossy of Jane’s Addiction, without the addiction.
