making lemonade

sam sorenson's life in music looks like the map montage from all the indiana jone's movies: you know the one with the glowing red line that slowly works its' way around before finally arriving at the destination. sam' been a constant in the local music scene for the better part of a decade, spending time with several bands, side projects and solo efforts.

with each band (moshmallows, larusso, ask for the future) sam's effort levels can't be criticized. i've personally seen the love and care he puts into everything he creates and his newest project, ask for the future is no exception. to read a glowing review, pick up this month's slug and read it. personally i just appreciate that sam's not going away. he's writing songs more suited to his style and taste than he ever has and it works. he's happy in his songs, he's upbeat about where things are going and when those two things are in place, it results in a better experience for everyone.

proof of his work ethic is aftf's new ep, another love. sam took all the frustration of his abrupt departure with larusso and funneled into new songs, a new approach and a solid ep. be warned though: it's catchy and you will find yourself wanting to hear it again and humming it during the day. so don't go listen to it unless you have $6 and an itunes account. catch sam and ask for the future on friday at the cafe with mesa drive, blackhounds and they heyday.
