Tommy Boys - Estate Sale
As of right now, this song is the clear frontrunner for my favorite song of 2014. At any given time, I may find myself compelled to play it on repeat for an hour or more. Actually, that’s happening right now, and since I’m at work and trying to write about other bands, it’s making my life a little difficult. But what the hell, I can spare five minutes, right?
"Estate Sale" is basically the only thing Tommy Boys have even released (I found three instrumental demos online, but the vocals are the best part of this song, so those totally don’t count), so I’m a little worried that they won’t be able to follow this up. But even if this song is the only thing I ever get from them, it’ll be enough. There’s apparently an album coming out from Other People Records later this year though, and I can’t wait to hear it.

Extra tickets at an arcade/prize place? Watch a little kid’s face light up when you give them a bunch of tickets
There are too many assholes in this world. Be a nice person.
