New song from The Polyphonic Spree
As I mentioned the other day, The Polyphonic Spree is set to release their Wait EP on September 5. We're beyond excited that the Spree is allowing us to premiere this song, because it's one of our favorite songs by one of our favorite bands of all time, and one we've always wished the Spree would cover. If you're unfamiliar with the original, Ryan Schreiber (who I know is your leader, it's okay to admit it) called it a "downright classic."
I assumed Tim DeLaughter wouldn't stray too far from the perfection of his original version, and he really didn't, but the song deserved this: the majestic horns, the angelic voices, the gorgeous, expansive orchestral feel. And the end result is nothing short of blissful. I'm not ready to say I love this as much as the Tripping Daisy version, but I love it different. Now, just wait until you hear the Nirvana cover.

I totally forgot to mention this the other day, but you absolutely have to go over the The Anchor Center to check out Pete's "Pop-Up Video"-style review of The Blow's "Pile of Gold." The song is awesome, the review is better. All I can say is I wish I'd have thought of this idea.
