Couch Session: One For The Team

Couch Session #10 — One For The Team

One For The Team, two for the show,
A quick pit-stop before they had to go.
Squeezed between sound check and a gig later that night,
everything was flawless, despite timing so tight.
With the Minneapolis clan, our Midwestern-bred kin,
we bonded over where we've lived, where we've been.
A tight-knit group, but with half keeping quiet outside,
the recordings took a different turn with the group's temporary divide.
With Donald's acoustic guitar, two mouths, nothing more,
the lyrics shine through, truly stripped to their core.
But off the stage, on a couch, with less noise to surround,
it's front and center, and the words turn profound.
Put back the drums, the bass and the keys,
And those same harmonies are there, tucked right in between.
Their recordings are a joy — we loved Ghosts from the start,
but in their body of work, these vocals are truly its heart.
So delve into both versions, to see just what we mean,
and fill the rest of your day with One For The Team:
