Big thank you to Guitar World for premiering my song, “Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight” today on their site.
“Today we’re premiering “Don’t Let’s Go To The Dogs Tonight,” by Jessie Kilguss.
This track from her upcoming album Devastate Me is a sweet spoken reminiscence of a more simple childhood. Kilguss artfully pulls us into her wistful nostalgia with a bit of twang and a strummy, well arranged instrumental accompaniment.
She shares, “The title ‘Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight’ comes from a great book by Alexandra Fuller. I liked the way those words sounded together and the images it conjured up. Like the author of the book, I grew up on a farm but I have lived in big cities (London, New York) for my entire adult life. This song is inspired by my desire to spend more time in quieter, open spaces.”
“Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight” is a memory-soaked meditation on the simplicity of country life, whose imagery includes pony-drawn sleds, big starry skies, and “Running barefoot on the fresh cut grass/Sailing into summer on an endless laugh.”’
You can read the rest of the feature and listen to the song on their site here.
I hope to see you on Novmeber 11th at 8pm for the record release show at Bowery Electric.
