Good Morning – “Step Aside” / “Oppsie”

Stefan Blair and Liam Parsons are the slacker duo Good Morning. The band released their excellent debut record Glory earlier this year on Solitare Records and recently dropped a pair of unheard singles.

There is a familiarity that’s being exuded by the new tracks, “Step Aside” and “Oppsie” which seems logical since they are unused tracks harvested from their Glory┬árecording sessions. Flashing inklings of jazz, smothered by haze, the timid “Step Aside” hinges on a hammock-rocking-kind-of-groove intertwined with dimly lit instruments. Despite the subdued melody, the track has a pleasant air that’s infectious. Being the more “jammy” of the two, “Oppsie” opens with a melody that Neil Young and Crazy Horse could’ve summoned up. Meandering but never fully taking the plunge, it’s hard not to succumb to the coasting attitude and sway along.
