Song of the day: "Some Kinda Love" by Nude Beach
Other Music, New York's esteemed record store and label, has long been one of my go-to places for discovering new music. They put out updates each week highlighting new and interesting releases. And, this week, they pointed me toward what is, pound for pound (or, perhaps, sound for sound?), the most high-energy release of the year, Nude Beach's II. Listening to the first few seconds of this song, I initially thought, "Wow! This sounds like classic Tom Petty." Seconds later, I was thinking, "No, it's more like earlier, snottier Elvis Costello." Both observations are true. OM also compares them to Bruce Springsteen and The Replacements, among others. How can you go wrong? Listen here.
