Even before I listened to the latest from Mike Check, I was interested. As someone who can’t ever seem to go to bed before 1 AM, thanks to distractions like YouTube and music blogs, I couldn’t help but be excited for a song called Night Owl. While Check is a night owl as well, he doesn’t simply watch fail videos from dusk till dawn; instead, he indulges in the NYC night life, staying awake with his new girl until the wee hours of the morning. Should you find yourself getting sleepy during your next evening out, the New Yorker’s vibrant, speedy flow combined with Will Guardian and Rohme Giuliano‘s intricate, crashing production should give you the boost needed to keep the party going. Night Owl is a standout from Check’s Stars, Dreams & Elbow Grease LP, freely downloadable online in addition to being available for purchase via iTunes.
