Each week, a Globe-pal (AKA a DJ at 91.1 the Globe) takes a song of their choosing, and dishes out a healthy review to be sent out and posted on globeradio.org/music.
The Globe Track of the Week is an excellent way to keep up with the new tunes presented weekly on 91.1 the Globe, the best college radio station in Indiana.
For this Track of The Week, we’re getting into some newer music, released on November 4. Rayland Baxter released his new single, “Rubberband Man,” in his album, If I were a Butterfly.
Baxter says that the song is an ode Thunder Sound, where he recorded most of his new album.
The single also has a music video, which was shot in Miami. The video shows Baxter and a woman dancing around in a hotel room as well as sunflower fields. The two are throwing around money while Baxter sports a very fun cowboy hat and a gold chain.
The different scenes in the music video help push the story along as Baxter explains that he is a man who has a plan and the leader of a band. The scenes are chaotic, like the lyrics of the song.
The chorus includes the continual chatting of “Rubberband Man, Rubberband Man, Rubberband Man.”
If I Were a Butterfly is the fourth studio album that Rayland Baxter has come out with. The album focuses on loss, happiness, freedom, and complications.
The song is very catchy and a great addition to the tracks on 91.1 The Globe. It is not a song to miss.
