lannyI got a nice email today from a dude that used run a record label called “Morning After Records.”  neat.  He is currently working with Denver, Colorado band, In The Whale.

The band is getting ready to release their 7-inch record Eric later this month.

They also recently recorded a cover of the Violent Femmes “Add It Up” to celebrate the 30th anniversary of that original Violent Femmes record.  Since it’s still a Wednesday Cover Song Freakout! Let’s jam one more!

On the way to school this morning with Madelyn we were listening to the radio.  We were punching around looking for a song and settle don The Peak in Vancouver. Laurie and Cory punched up the 1991 song “American Music” by the Violent Femmes.  I love that song.

Back in the olden days, the kids used to dance to rock & roll.  There was club out in Surrey called the Ozone.  Thursday night, they put the beers on cheap and fired up an aggressive dance playlist of rock music.  The times were good.  At the end of the night, the DJ(s) would maybe play some Pennywise “Bro Hymn” or maybe the Violent Femmes “American Music.”

So some American music?  What have I heard today that I dig?  How about some hardcore outta Philadelphia.  The band is called Cop Problem.

Pitchfork has the stream.

Then while punching around on Pitchfork I heard this beauty from Hartford.  Magik Markers.

And THEN, this song comes on after Magik Markers on my soundcloud… and Webmeister Bud came running in to the Music Hut, “what is this?”

Bleeding Rainbow?  Cool!

Go with yourself.
