Plushgun - Me

[MP3] Plushgun – “Waste Away”

you make a show of it but now your boyfriend’s back i’m incidental

♫ Plushgun – Waste Away

  • Who: Dan Ingala and Matt Bogdanow
  • What: Anthemic rock pop, like Fun., Gambit, The Concept
  • Where: Brooklyn + Facebook
  • When: New LP Me. Me. is out now.
  • Why: Plushgun is another one of those bands that never quite made the TBE cut but are now back and better than ever. “Waste Away” is one editing class away from an epic 80s movie coming of age montage that would include lame dads, fast cars, cute girls, and a bike race at the railroad tracks that ends in… well, I really shouldn’t say. Lets just say there is a kiss involved.

TBE Happy Bday Cake

The Burning Ear Turns 1! Happy Birthday To ME and Thank You to YOU!

Wow. It was one year ago today that I squeezed out my first post as The Burning Ear and 411 posts later and here we are. It’s amazing how fast time flies and how much great music can come out in a year. Birthday’s are a time for celebration and gift giving so I’ve wrangled together a little something for all of you to celebrate with. Over the past 12 months a number of great tracks have found a happy home in my stereo but for whatever reason or another I never covered them on the site. As a 1st birthday gift I thought I would bundle them all up for you. For the sake of browsing I’ve taken these 25 tunes and divided them into three ridiculously arbitrary categories. There is also a zip of all the jams at the bottom of the post so grab that bad boy.  I hope that you all find some new favorite bands and remember that there are more sweet, sweet jams popping up here everyday. It has been a great pleasure to work on TBE this past year and to watch myself grow along with it. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all of you who stop by everyday to listen to these great songs and read my silly words. More and more people are leaving comments and I can feel the TBE community growing. We may never take over the world but we will certainly be having the most fun. Stay tuned because their are a few things in the pipelines that I am looking forward to. I only hope this next year is as exciting and fruitful as the last!
