Quiet Life - "San Luis Obispo"

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Tue, Sep 27, 2011 at 1:19 PM


I hate San Luis Obispo. As a younger man I even contemplated attending California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo (their most famous alum, this guy), only to have the repressed memory of the horrific San Luis Obispo Mission I built for a third grade school project come bubbling back to the surface. It was made of sugar cubes. I got a C- on it.

Fuck that place, I'd rather hang in Morro Bay.

But I do not hate "San Luis Obispo." The latest single from Quiet Life is the first we've heard from the local roots rockers since the release of their fine Big Green LP earlier this year. Frontman Sean Spellman channels his innermost Ryan Adams (circa Heartbreaker, not Gold) on this uptempo number about the central coastal city. The band is about to embark on a series of tour dates supporting The Mother Hips (both bands will be at the Doug Fir on October 15), and then a stretch with Dr. Dog on the Eastern seaboard as well.
