Hear Ye On Spotify: what rock nyc is listening to 11-15-13

rising up

1. My City Of Ruins – Bruce Springsteen – Whenever a disaster, natural or otherwise, occurs, bruce rolls out this song and here is the kicker: he does so for very good reason, it is elegiac and heartbroken, it tears at the political fabric, and it tears at God, only to extoll us to “rise up” like the fire people rising through that tower forever upwards to eternity – A

2. Train Undewater – Bright Eyes – What Springsteens “rise up” is to 9-11, Conor’s “goddam make me cry” is to 9-12 – A

3. Fire – Bruce Springsteen – Did you know Bruce didn’t write this? Helen Bach did – A

4. Swingin Party – The Replacements – The song with perpetual nervousness – A

5. Swingin Party – Lorde – Like a séance has just called her  back from 1852 – A

6. Sensation Demo – Pete Townshend – Not bad – B+

7. Somebody Told Me – the Killers – How can something so big be so dozy – C-

8. 3 Kings – Rick Ross – Three great rappers with just the usual stuff on their gminds! – B+

9. Waitress In The Sky – The Replacements – Not untypical hit job – B+

10. Bastards Of Young – The Replacements – Killer fuzzed out intro – B+
