Slow songs are tough. The lower the BPM, the more the artist has to sell it. Thankfully, every second of Evan P. Donahue's "Tell Me Sara" is wrung for every ounce of greatness it contains. It's a brutally simple and endlessly repeatable melody. The band understands this and doesn't crowd the song with needless instrumentation. We caught Donahue and his band at January's Communion show at Mercy/High Watt and we highly recommend you do the same next time they play a hometown show.
