Ben Gibbard wrote this song in response to the "Paralyzation of fear" after the effects of 9/11. The song tells about "staying indoors" and also, pending translations, the end of the world: "We will become silhouettes when our bodies finally go." - https://bit.ly/3oIoePp

As we drive to find somewhere with power, during a pandemic, we are so grateful to hear your voice on the car radio. In this mad world, we appreciate your expression of all that we are feeling. Could we please hear Bombay Bicycle Club's Turn the Stereo On? Thank you for saving us with music every day, Diana and Björn

Claud is a Chicago-born, NYC-based artist whose debut album Super Monster arrives on February 12th via Phoebe Bridgers’ new label, Saddest Factory, an imprint of Dead Oceans. In regard to their new song “Cuff Your Jeans” they say “I wrote it after having a fever dream about trying to get on a train to see my friend but missing it over and over and over because there was always some obstacle in my way. The dream left me in a cold sweat and extremely frustrated,” Claud said in a statement about the track. https://claud.online/

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts," Mark Twain wrote. "Roam" is the musical equivalent of that quote; a call to go out and see the world. - https://bit.ly/3snNaOA

Beautiful World

Jerry Casale of Devo told Songfacts: "We wanted to get everybody into a mood where people thought Devo was saying the world was really nice and saying the world was beautiful, then it turns out to be one man's opinion, which is mine, which is, while the world could be beautiful, it's not for me because of what I'm seeing." - https://bit.ly/3oHCdoO
