THREE: Bob Mould – “American Crisis”

“American Crisis is a tale of two times,” Bob Mould explained in a statement. “Past Time and Present Time. The parallels between 1984 and 2020 are a bit scary for me: telegenic, charismatic leaders, praised and propped up by extreme Evangelicals, either ignoring an epidemic (HIV/AIDS) or being outright deceitful about a pandemic (COVID-19).”

FOUR: Erasure – “Hey Now (Think I Got a Feeling)”

This is a great new throwback jam to their heyday.
