Song Premiere: Centro-matic, “Cross Path”

Centro-matic-2011-color
The Artist: Texan alt-country rockers Centro-matic.
The Song: “Cross Path,” from their upcoming album Take Pride In Your Long Odds, available 6/3.
Fun Fact: Their latest album will be the 11th in the band’s 17-year-long career.
Songwriter Says: “This song came together very quickly one afternoon in the fall of 2011.  I was looking after my daughter who was about nine months old at the time, and writing whenever I could find pockets of time.  I remember carrying her up the stairs in our little apartment, surely to change a diaper, and that vocal melody and chord structure hit me at the same time.  I got her all fixed up, then we went into the little office space off the main bedroom.  She sat in the floor and played or read while I committed a distorted, acoustic guitar version to my four-track cassette machine.  The full band version naturally lifted the song in a big way, but also maintained some of that demo’s rawness.
