B-sides are some of the most interesting tracks a band or artist may release. Sometimes terrible, sometimes transcendent, and often showcasing an interest aspect of the artist that you may not have expected. That’s not entirely the case with Ski Lodge’s “The Gun”, a B-side taken from Big Heart, but it’s certainly a worthy track for your collection.
I’m curious of the reasoning for releasing this single now, but I’ll most assuredly take it. With it’s upbeat tempo and cinematic wavelengths, the track feels like a step back to an earlier era in music. If I put it on the scale, this newly uncovered B-side sits near the top of the Ski Lodge catalog for me.
If you haven’t checked out Big Heart, you can grab it on Amazon.
