When the dust settles on the annals of music video history, “Free Throws” will probably not be anywhere near the top of the list. Like the music Mike and Chuck produce, it’s carefree and appears to be dictated with a spur of the moment attitude. The wintry Windy Cindy co-stars in the backdrop, viewed through a filter that looks as vintage as Chuck’s Nautica jacket. With that being said, I’m glad they dropped it because I missed this track and apparently their Merry Christmas EP altogether. Blame it on the egg nog.
Chuck’s bass line is fierce and that’s how they continue to lower my defenses towards lending a more critical ear to what they do. Now I’m just patiently waiting for the next warm day so I can ride out to this with the windows down.
