In celebration of their well-received, recently released, third album, Make Things Better, Town Meeting vocalist/guitarist Luke Condon chatted with long-time music writer, Jed Gottlieb, for a Sunday feature in the Boston Herald.
Reflecting on their Ayer, Massachusetts roots, they discussed the band’s beginnings, their 2019 “rebirth,” both sonically, and member-wise, and attempted to unravel the mysterious songwriting enigma that is, “the 4th verse.”
“Fast forward two years to June and Town Meeting released its strangest, wildest, most-dynamic LP yet in “Make Things Better.” The band pulled the title from the lyrics of the song called “The Fourth Verse”: A clear-eyed look at the group’s struggles. It’s one of many tracks that represent more collaboration between bandmates and a bolder approach (can anyone still call Town Meeting folk rock when they crescendo like Pearl Jam on half the songs?).”
