We actually had to check to make sure this wasn't a cover of some obscure older song that was released in the 1950s that no one cared about. It's not! It's new! And that certainly speaks to the power of Spectrals aka the one man band man Louis Jones. Look at that record cover! Even that could fool us. But whatever—you're here for the song and "I Ran With Love But Couldn't Keep Up," is a killer. Lilting slide guitar, and those rounded, warm vocals...it's enough to make us want to invent a time machine, climb in the time machine and then go back to the '50s and dance with a girl in some overly bright diner to this song (that's what they did, right?). But it's cold out, which means we're feeling lazy, which means we're just going to put it on repeat. Now you can too.
