Here’s a new short song that is freaking awesome. First song I’ve heard with a Breaking Bad reference.

And a sweet, if not offbeat, tune.

“Happy days are here once again
He can play connect 4 with his kids again
Sometimes they cheat
Sometimes he cheats
But most important is quality time”

Check out Free Swim on Facebook and Bandcamp, where you can buy the music.
