Visit’s “Middletown NY” is a single based on the writings of Thomas Pynchon, namely his novel “Bleeding Edge”. Lyrics and sound-wise it’s a song busy with the small American life and its obsessions, turned big worldwide issues.
The mention of singing cowgirls, heartbreaks, along with the dusty sound of guitar and fiddle, make this echo out like a walk through the small-scale dilemmas of the inhabitants of a small, quaint neighbourhood.
Now, if this sounds like a tough sell, please hang around for the chorus, where the singing sells the single along with the pleasantly-lit quarter described here. This is a classic sounding Americana record, but one executed with great finesse, befitting of the material that inspired it.
