I've been a fan of scrappy Scranton emo outfit Tigers Jaw ever since I heard the title track of a 2009 four-song EP called Spirit Desire. As I wrote in a Soundboard preview for the band's spring show at Beat Kitchen (which I sadly missed), "Spirit Desire" is a slow burner that sounds like a Pinkerton B side with a sturdy reggaeton beat, which does a great job of evoking the nervous energy and intensity of the kind of love that vocalists Ben Walsh and Brianna Collins are keyed in on. "Spirit Desire" won me over immediately, and it's stuck with me through the years, cycling in and out of my various playlists and rotations with increasing frequency. Considering I made "Spirit Desire" today's 12 O'Clock Track, I'll probably end up blasting it repeatedly for the next few weeks.
