Freddy Ruppert of Former Ghosts sings into a beer bottle for Italy’s Casa Del Mirto on the song “Just Promise.” This song passes the house code safety inspection but cuts some corners that make it really delightful. It builds, it breaks, as it should, but something about the materials is fresh and sustainable. Freddy is a good candidate for love-lorn lyrics and some disagreements with “mother.”

on a sidenote…
There are motifs in song lyrics that we can trace for historical coolness and psychological interest. What other songs can you think of that call “mother” in on matters of the heart? “Maybe you’re just like my mother…” “Oh mother I can feel the soil falling over my head” “I could get so close it’s true, if I was your mother” “Mother, do you think they’ll try to break my balls?”
