Wood Chickens "Skunk Ape" 7"

First things first - really did love the Dead Milkmen during my formative High School years. The title track on this rubs that Milkmen vibe, pretty damn close. As for the other two tracks, they rollick through the hillbilly fields, skipping about like Mojo Nixon on a harder hooch. Not really anything I'm needing to hear again

Why present continuous here ,is it to emphasize the idea (it is really something I don't need right now )

It's used with progressive to refer tentatively to a present wish or attitude.
