Despite the tumult, Town Meeting have fought to give their fans a good year. Since June 2020, after the release of their album Make Things Better, they have released the first of two B-sides EPs, booked as many shows as could be played safely, co-hosted a Neil Young themed podcast with Boston mainstream radio personality Mike Hsu, and between the members’ various side projects, recorded and released at least two dozen songs. Although people could use a good new song at just about any time, Town Meeting’s new single, “The Imitator,” arrives in time for some new anniversaries that will have us reflecting on the past year. True to the band’s custom, “The Imitator” is a fun track that might guide you in through those necessary, tough reflections.
