This Day In Music History

It was on this day in 1949 that Bruce Springsteen was born (to run, presumably in the badlands). You don’t need us to tell you about The Boss. We love him, you love him, he’s great. Instead let us use this as an opportunity to share one of our favorite covers, Crooked Fingers doing a hell of a haunting job on the Springsteen classic “The River.”

Tuesday Tip-Off: Full Sun

Full Sun recently followed up last year’s wonderful Thinkin About It by dropping an EP of home recordings that are four tasty slices of fuzzed out punk perfection. Catchy, bratty pop songs with the attitude and distortion turned up to 11 and the kind of hooks that make repeated listens compulsory. The band is donating all sales of the EP to Every Last Vote Fund to help fight voter disenfranchisement in marginalized communities. You can check out the video for the first single below and grab your copy of the EP here.

We Never Asked For This is our short review of a release that showed up in our inbox unsolicited.

Remixes and glossy pop are not our usual cup of tea, but our hats are off to Cut Copy and Jacques Lu Cont. We’ll be damned if this doesn’t have us shaking it in the office on a Monday morning. This song hits like a number one smash that The Pet Shop Boys never got around to releasing and we are feeling it on repeat. Cut Copy have a new album out title Freeze, Melt available here.
