The Penny Jam

I have little doubt that this episode of the penny jam will go down as one of my all time favorites. The Good Ship Astoria are simply good people and quite simply that is an ingredient for good music. I never knew it but the backroom of a furniture store can be one of the most intimate places in the world under the right circumstances. The song, “Tried so Hard” is stripped down and quite formulaic in a way that gets right to the point. Most importantly there is nothing to do but confront this song’s argument. Honestly, listen for yourself!
