“Where the Good Buzz Goes” by John John Brown is an exploration of the life of a war veteran with PTSD. Brown’s folky guitar sets the scene for the story but his lyricism is the real gold ticket that drives the song home. His exploration of the beauty in mundane living is powerful to those who have been through a lot. The VFW, his daughter’s yellow slide, and many more images sink deep and stay with the listener. The background voice (and fiddle/mandolin) is none other than Jessy Lynn Martens, who was on the FX animated TV series Archer. An excellent modern Americana work by Brown!
