A slow blues lament to days gone by and feeling the emotional highs and lows of trying to find your way. “Day by Day” by Oli McCracken is a track that sure to strike a chord for anyone who has a soft spot for southern rock. Oli McCrackens songs belong shouted on top of the Rocky Mountains after a successful hike but also belong in a dive bar in the middle of winter, if that makes sense? The downtrodden lyrical content that also has a layer of seduction mixed with the church organ gives “Day by Day” a cool atmosphere that makes this listener think of self reflection and time spent in the New England jam band scene where I’m sure Oli McCracken would shine. Prior to “Day by Day” Oli McCracken has two other releases available on streaming services so check those out too!
The bass fill at 3:00 is epic.
