Zookeeper–a.k.a. the cover for the musical projects of the now-Austin-based ex-Gloria Record singer Chris Simpson–has been steadily making its way up the artist charts this week, and one listen to “I Live In The Mess You Are,” which is available on the band’s current EP, shows why. Not only is the track a catchy, loose-limbed strummer, the band garners extra goodwill points thanks to its name, which conjures up warm memories of playing one of the simplest, yet most enjoyable console games of the 8-bit era:
