The Friday Fire Track: Burning House – “Mirror Song”

Shoegaze is a true under the radar genre but this Southampton band Burning House is helping put it back on the map quickly with their screeching feedback and fuzz drenched vocals.

Today’s Friday Fire Track, “Mirror Song,” has that Jesus & Mary...

The Friday Fire Track: Robert Pollard – “Subspace Biographies”

Trying something a bit different today as the Friday Fire Track goes back to 1998 and features a song from Robert Pollard’s sophomore solo record Waved Out. “Subspace Biographies” is easily one of my favorite Robert Pollard solo songs with its gentle opening before its foot tapping charge keeps the high kicks going. The song just keeps moving and churning as it almost drowns out Pollard’s lyrics near its...
