Sequestered In Memphis

Artist: 
The Hold Steady
Date:

Yes, yes, yes. I have been obsessing about this song for like a month now and let me tell you a few things I've learned about The Hold Steady.

1.) They're from New York City. Seriously! How can this be!??! New York creates some awesome bands, but not these kind of rockers.
2.) They have just enough Springsteen flavor to tickle my Bruce spots, but not too much to seem derivative.
3.) As usual, I tend to prefer the less critically praised stuff. It is my lot in life.

So this is exactly the kind of artist that I feel like supporting. Buy their album! Rent in NYC is really high!

Somewhere it got lost in my text that Rough Justice was the source of this masterwork, so be sure to thank her!



I'm holding steady

Cusack...you're welcome!

Love it when he sings, "I went there on business!"

As it regards "less critically praised stuff", this band is gettin' tons of praise from reviewers as well as listeners. This is an exception for your "lot in life".

Kudos to you for adding them to the list.

Yes, but from what I've been

Yes, but from what I've been reading "Stay Positive" has been getting much less praise than previous albums and I have liked what I've caught off of that one best. I'm always at odds with the "critics!"

you got spunk!

I like your attitude.
