Go Set Go is a band that started back in 2002. They have a Wikipedia page and that was the first time I ever saw a timeline and bar graphs from current and past members. At any rate the main member is Mike TV who started the project and through thick and thin kept the project alive.
He is slated to release basically a quadruple album’s worth of material in December. That’s a lot of tracks but not unheard of. I’m old enough to remember when box sets were popular and would contain four, fix, six CD’s, maybe more. They were often for uber fans of the band and would often come in some kind of container as big as a toolbox.
For this particular album Mike TV will be releasing twelve singles ahead of the album release. The first one I got my hands on was “Can't Last Forever” which is an almost six-minute song that is a catchy and fairly stripped down rock song. Mike TV integrates a standard rock setup of bass, guitar and drums and it felt thoroughly integrated in ’90s alternative. There were a couple moments where Weezer came to mind and more broadly speaking the song felt like a song that would have been in rotation with like minded songs back when people listened to the radio.
There are also moments that feel more inspired by hard rock and Americana. The chorus in particular felt anthemic and single worthy.
The song worked at an almost six-minute time length but could really work as a three-minute song that gets in and out as well. That was at least the second thought that popped into my head. The first thought was that I really liked the song and looking forward to hearing the next single.
