"What are you holding on to? What are you holding on three? What are you holding on four? Four more years."
There has always been a childlike, storybook quality to Scott Garred's songwriting. He tells stories so small that sometimes aren't really stories at allâjust moments, really. And sometimes in his minimal way he traces a circle of deep sorrow and loss until it connects back full circle to the ecstatic joy of having nothing left to lose. That happens here, on the unreleased "Come On In" from his next album, Sorta Heavy Metal. (There is , of course, nothing heavy metal about the new Super XX Man album; the title track just dreams of starting a loud new band.)
