Tuesday Tip-Off: The Psychedelic Furs

We cover quite a bit of new music on the blog inspired by The Psychedelic Furs, so it seems only right that we share the new single from the Furs themselves. “Wrong Train” follows the continuation that has been the 40 year evolution of the band’s sound. To everyone’s benefit that evolution hasn’t been a radical change from the group’s original heydey sound, but more of a refining of all of its subtleties and strengths. This is the finest of fine wines and we’re eager for more.

Among our favorite things in hip hop is a strong point of view with something to say delivered with a tight flow. “Clout” by the Bronx’s CHRiS DiViNE delivers that and then some with a song that not only expresses the feelings of frustration, uselessness and rage of our current socio political climate, but also the desperate hope that salvation can be found in God and/or a lover. It’s a flex not unlike what Prince would do at the height of his powers, in a contemporary form.
