To the untrained eye, it may appear as though we snoozed a little bit on Willy Moon's "Railroad Track." Not so. We were obviously just waiting for a slow, cool Wednesday on which to unveil it. Moon's a 21-year-old New Zealander, and his "Railroad Track" 7-inch is available now via Nashville's own Third Man Records. If your turntable's dead, you can also "pick it up" on iTunes. The B-side is apparently a cover of Nancy Sinatra's "Bang Bang."
As you can see in the above video for "Railroad Track" — directed by prolific local videographer Michael Carter — the Kiwi crooner buzzed around Nashville for a spell, even popping into the ever-colorful Santa's Pub. As for the tune itself, it sounds a little to me like "Big Rock Candy Mountain" given the "Jesus Walks" treatment. Anyway, I'm apparently not the only one hearing hints of Kanye. Thumper of a song, striking video. Have a look.
