I was a bit put off at first by the dirtier side of Person L’s debut full-length, The Positives. Although I had touted their ability to dance between radically different styles, the louder half of the album got a bit too close to a garage rock-like sound for my tastes (I had had enough of that stuff even back when it was “in”). At the time I think I had my own ideas for where I hoped the band would go. Anyways, after continued listening I started to warm up to these grittier tracks. Good timing on my part. Person L decided to release “Goodness Gracious” as the album’s first single. Imagine the energetic, lo-fi feel of Devin Davis after he’s done a bit of drinking. With that in mind, the above video is only appropriate.
