The Hold Steady "Constructive Summer"

So I thought about doing a post on all these leaky things that keep leaking of late (think Okkervil River, Peter Bjorn and John, not to mention Bloc Party), but a moment of inspiration tore those plans asunder.

I'd never really understood the appeal of the Hold Steady (despite Daniel Radcliffe, who led me to listen to a few of their albums in search of a reason to enjoy them) until I decided to download a few songs off their latest album, Stay Positive. Last summer's unhappy theme song for me was "Stuck for the Summer" by Two Hours Traffic - this summer's theme song is a bit more...constructive.
"I met your saviour I knelt at his feet
and he took my 10 bucks and went down the street

I tried to believe all the things you said

My friends that aren't dying are already dead"

The Hold Steady - Constructive Summer [highly rec'd!]
The Hold Steady - Sequestered in Memphis [highly rec'd!]

If case you're having THAT kind of summer:
Two Hours Traffic - Stuck for the Summer

Buy Stay Positive directly from the band
The Hold Steady's website/myspace

    The new Hold Steady album is an amazing piece of work. Full of excellent rock songs and wonderful melodies.
