‘Featured Artist,’ Deer Tick, ‘Twenty Miles’

August 31st, 2011  |  by Nels Thoreson   |  Published in Songs of the Day

Today’s “Featured Artist and Song of the Day” showcases Providence, Rhode Island’s own, Deer Tick, with their song, “Twenty Miles,” off their album, The Black Dirt Sessions, through Partisan Records.  This is the band’s third studio album, and their newest album, Divine Providence, is set for release on October 25, 2011.  Songs from that album will be featured in future articles.

Deer Tick is comprised of John McCauley (guitar, vocals), Ian O’Neil (guitar, vocals), Chris Ryan (bass, vocals), Rob Crowell (keys, saxophone, vocals), and Dennis Ryan (drums, vocals).  Their sound is unique to themselves, and it is as it should be.  They play what they want, how they want, and don’t need to or feel the need to cater to anything.

Deer Tick cuts their own path on their musical road, and is one to follow as they travel on down it.

These words find the page in “Twenty Miles,”

“I’m losin’ when I am not playin’ no games
Now, would you take me back when I gamble my pain?
I’ve got no direction without her little fingers
Barbed wire, razor wire, nothing keeps me from her

Now if I had no boots, I’d trek through the mud
While mosquitos are racing to draw the first blood
If you’re runnin’ away, then I’m lookin’ for you
And if you’ve lost your way, I’m seein’ you through.
If you’re runnin’ away, then I’m lookin’ for you
And if you’ve lost your way, I’m seein’ you through…”

For updates, tour dates, and other news click on their website, you can buy their music here, and follow them on their Facebook Page.  Deer Tick is set to head out on a nationwide tour at the end of September, and will be in Denver, at the Larimer Lounge, November 10, 2011.  Until the next time you’ll be able to see a show or listen to them, here is Deer Tick, with their song, “Twenty Miles,” enjoy,
