Tuesday Tip-Off: Tender Glue

Effortlessness is the hardest thing to achieve in art. That quality that a thing wasn’t made out of great effort, but rather just sprang into being fully formed and uninterrupted. “Sad Sometimes” by Tender Glue feels like that for us. An introspective indie rock number loosely in the vein of Band of Horses, the song’s melodies and tempo changes float and turn in ways that feel obvious after the fact; as if there really couldn’t be any other way for them to go that wouldn’t sound like a nudge and a pull. It sounds as right as the wind in the trees and as hippy dippy as that sounds, that’s where we land on this one.
