Thank God it’s Friday’s song of the day

Following last week’s post there was a pretty strong call for rock. This was good feedback as the previous few music posts were pretty darn soft. (I don’t know if I agree with the comment that they were songs for children, but everyone gets an opinion.) Yesterday’s mega-headbanging—and hair-swinging—metal could be seen as a reaction. Or maybe it was just funny.

Today, I bring you some honest to goodness R-O-C-K.

Up The Empire is a band from Brooklyn. Their new EP Loose Ends features three rocking originals plus a cover of Dinosaur Jr.’s “Feel The Pain.”

Oh, and their drummer was arrested at an Obama street party (story and awesome photo here). I think it was the same day their EP was released.

So here’s Up The Empire with “It’s Alright (For Now)”:

Happy weekend.

Well, it's no Amon Amarth. But I'll take it.
Thank you.
