Benji Cossa – April

“April” is properly a springtime song, but why not have a little spring in winter? The first thing you notice in this song is that palpitating heartbeat-beat, dense and all-business. The guitar (squealing and squawking with delight) and piano (ghostly) drift together to form a hazy atmosphere, a cool crisp night, good for a walk in the park. This song is somewhat reminiscent (lyrically) of the Blood Brothers’ “Love Rhymes with Hideous Car Wreck,” in that both deal with telling the story of a couple, or at least the initial encounter. Both songs also, for whatever reason, feel like they should have been shiny, innocent teen ballads back in the early 60s. Anyway, “April.”
