This month's Hot Single is another studio reworking of a song from our debut LP, 'Mystery Garage'. In the midst of that raucous and bombastic live album, 'Laugh-A-Minute seems a bit of an outlier. With its' slower tempo and country lilt, it might seem out of place. But, the aching melody is pure power pop.
On this studio rendition we were able to further flesh out the beauty of the song. The patented Sticks harmonies are littered throughout and this version features some of Jason's most delicate and melodic guitar work.
Ten years ago, when Jeff asked us if we wanted to be in a power pop, we all jumped at the chance. 'Laugh-A-Minute' might have been the first time we truly believed we could do it.Now we get to do it all over again. Enjoy!
