It’s Friday and the sun is shining brighter than Tiger Woods’ teeth. It’s the type of fake Spring day that deserves the smell bbq wafting skyward, condensation from ice cold beer bottles pooling on tables, and summery rock gems exploding from back decks.

Newfoundland’s Long Distance Runners give off a gritty, Velvets type cool on “Election Day” that’s tailor made for days like this. It’s hard to deny the catchiness of the affair; big guitars, vocals with enough swagger to turn Clyde Frazier’s head and just enough retro flair to help you settle in to the sound.

The band’s LP, Tracks, is out now and is a surefire bet to make your porch sessions more enjoyable.
