RED HOT VIDEO: GARBAGE: “NO HORSES”


I'm only labeling this new Garbage video as a red hot video instead of a song of the day because "No Horses" already was a song of the day when they debuted the audio a week or so ago.  Anyway, this is the apocalypse as seen by Garbage...

#songoftheday = GARBAGE: “NO HORSES”


"This is the apocalypse," sings Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson as their new single "No Horses" comes to its chilling conclusion.  It starts off sounding like it's going to be a synth pop song, albeit a dark one, with Shirley singing, "They'll love you, ...

#songoftheday = PARAMORE: HARD TIMES”

Dave Pirner of Soul Asylum: Exclusive Interview 2016

Soul Asylum will release their brand new, 2016 studio album Change of Fortune on March 18th and it’s one of their best in years, right up there with Grave Dancer’s Union (1992) and Let Your Dim Light Shine (1995). It is not an attempt to rehash those albums, though. On the contrary, today’s...

#songoftheday = Ezra Furman – “Ordinary Life”


“I’m sick of this record already,” begins “Ordinary Life,” a song roughly halfway through the album that is about, well, being sick of ordinary life. While he sings about losing the will to live in Boston, floating and waiting to die, the song isn’t intended to inspire suicides....
