Roadie Man - The Pretenders

from the album Alone (2016)

Chrissie Hynde and company are back with Alone, their first album in eight years.

Thus far, the song I am digging is Roadie Man.  This song (about roadies) in centered around a bouncing, soulful groove that easily hooks the listener.  Over this, Chrissie Hynde delivers her vocals against the counterpoint of a Farfisa organ.  These two instruments play marvelously off of one another.

Add some groovy guitar, tight drumming, and a delightfully simple bass line and you've really got something.  Lines like "What happens on the bus, stays on the bus" don't hurt either.
