What better way to celebrate a gray fall day than with a nine-minute, steady-driving postrock track from Athens band Maserati? Today’s 12 O’Clock Track, “Show Me the Season,” remains my favorite Maserati song, not only because it shows off late drummer Jerry Fuchs’s uncanny ability to hammer out a rhythm so effortlessly and with such refinement, but also because he’s unquestionably steering the ship—you can hear him absorbing the wisps of delay-heavy guitar and nonstop, galloping bass to eventually hatch a full-on dramatic crescendo, like something that would pair a little too beautifully with a flying scene from a mid-80s fantasy movie (because they all have them).
