3 Songs: On Repeat

1.  Craig Finn - "Honolulu Blues" (The Hold Steady frontman steps out with his first solo album Clear Heart Full Eyes, out now on Vagrant.  The songs are more acoustic based, rootsy and even bluesier than the Hold Steady but of course, still retain Craig's distinct vocals and knack for engaging storytelling, taking his sound from the bar to the coffee shop.)

2.  Nada Surf - "When I Was Young" (For their seventh album, The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy out now on Barsuk Records, the band injects their sound with the youthful live energy that made them so "popular" in the first place to great results.)


3.  The Holiday Crowd - "Never Speak Of It Again" (Canadian new-romantic indie-pop four-piece create a bare bones Smiths-like, emotional rock experience with wispy, jangly guitars and melancholic melodies for miles on their new EP Over The Bluffs, out now on Shelflife Records.)
