Can't Hardly Wait
by The Replacements
(152 plays) | (0 fans)

Two versions of this song exist. The most famous one, on "Pleased To Meet Me," starts with a bass line and features horns. The original, found on the "Tim" demo sessions, has the guitar starting the song and is about committing suicide. The record company felt that "Pleased To Meet Me," with suicide paean "The Ledge," didn't need any controversy over having two songs about suicide, so the lyrics to this song were altered. -- Enjoy a tribute to this wonderful Paul Westerberg song (and see a video of the band in action): https://medialoper.com/certain-songs-1890-the-replacements-cant-hardly-wait/

Yeah Yeah Yeahs are BACK! After announcing some shows and signing to Secretly Canadian, the trio has announced a brand-new album, Cool It Down, which will be out in September. “I see the younger generations staring down this threat, and they’re standing on the edge of a precipice, confronting what’s coming with anger and defiance,” Karen O said of the new song, "Spitting Off The Edge Of The World". “It’s galvanizing, and there’s hope there.” https://bit.ly/3tb8Krk

"I can't hate myself into a different shape." Dammit those lyrics hit hard. Especially when sang so beautifully. Behind “Brimheim” is Copenhagen based musician and songwriter, Helena Heinesen Rebensdorff. Her stage name is an homage to her Faroese roots, translating to ‘home of the breaking waves’. - https://brimheim.bandcamp.com/album/can-t-hate-myself-into-a-different-shape

Perfect Smile

(2 plays) | (0 fans)

Last month, the fuzzy Seattle power-pop trio Supercrush announced a new EP, Melody Maker, the follow-up to their 2020 studio debut SODO Pop. They introduced it with “Trophy,” and today they’re back with another new track, the soaring and sweet “Perfect Smile.” “With teeth so straight and white, you’ve got a perfect smile/ It’s so much prettier than mine,” bandleader Mike Palm sings on it. “I bet your parents bought you braces as a child/ I wanna see it all the time.” Read more at Stereogum: https://www.stereogum.com/2187616/supercrush-perfect-smile/music/
