Song Of The Day

The Strokes – “Under Cover Of Darkness”

I’ll admit, I was scared to check out this new single. I’ve always been a big fan of The Strokes… I really do enjoy their sound, it gets me amped up and dancing. I remember when another one of my long time favorite ‘fun’ bands, 311, released the album Uplifter in 2009, I was terribly disappointed. It’s almost as if bands with this distinct kind of sound can only veer so far from that sound… and then there are only so many songs they can produce with that one sound, so they end up either successfully transforming their sound, or just losing momentum and putting out music that’s much less enjoyable. I feel like that happened with 311 and with Muse too, and maybe even Incubus. I don’t want that to happen with The Strokes. This single isn’t WOWING me, but it’s definitely not terrible, so I have hope for their new album… Angles comes out March 22nd.

Lyric Of The Week

The Strokes – “Evening Sun”

I was listening to The Strokes on a long drive late last night. First Impressions Of Earth is such a great album for driving… and whenever I listen, I always find myself loving each song more than the last. These lyrics from “Evening Sun” really stood out to me last night:

“All actors they’re pretending,
And singers they sometimes lie.
Oh kids are always honest,
Cause they don’t think they’re ever gonna die.
You’re the prettiest smartest captain of the team,
I love you more than being seventeen”

Song Of The Day

Punch Brothers – “Reptilia”

I saw these guys open up for Josh Ritter last month and I was quite impressed. Can’t wait to catch them again at Newport Folk. As a big fan of The Strokes, a highlight of their set for me was their cover of “Reptilia”. Here they are performing it live at WNRN radio:
