The Foreign Resort: “Delayed”

One of my biggest pet peeves is when a band hooks me with a great track (or two) and then pulls a bait and switch by declining to maintain creative resolve. It’s an effective ploy, but it’s also disheartening to see ingenuity subdued and talent dissipated.

Needing an outlet for my frustration, I’ve decided to begin cataloguing this scourge under the heading “Teasers.” The objective will be three-fold, representing a personal catharsis, a promotional service (i.e., to recognize worthwhile songs, isolated as they may be), and a public plea for the artist in question not to rest on their laurels.
