Track of the Day: 'Touch'

Past TracksMatt Drenik has been rocking the Austin scene for several years as part of Lions and now he has now stepped out on his own, with excellent results. Whereas his main group is riff-heavy hard rock, BattleMe is a new, groove-oriented project and a breath of fresh air. Drenik's falsetto is more Wayne Coyne than it is Al Green, but it is utterly sincere, and the low-end pulse of this song is very much aimed at making you dance. With spring on the way, this track has already won a spot in my summer mixes.
