Track of the Day: 'A Little More Time'

Past TracksLet's just take a moment to appreciate the craftsmanship on "A Little More Time," a song by the New York indie pop group Baskervilles. Every element is in place here: the handclaps, the drum fills, the violin runs, the male-female harmonies on the chorus. It's all just so, to thrilling effect. Then we have the lyrics, which offer a quick, economical narrative about a romance that hasn't quite launched yet.

Is this story--featuring a clumsy waitstaff, a fetching girl with glasses, and lots of puppyish unresolved sexual tension--a bit too '90s rom-com? A skosh too meet-cute? Sure. But the band members sing and play with so much pep that it really doesn't matter. Baskervilles find room for a jangly guitar solo, a discordant piano breakdown, and lots and lots of heady joy, and the song still gets in and gets out in less than two and a quarter minutes. A thing well made is a thing well made.
