I’ll admit that I listned to Punches primarily because I’d listened to the Talking Heads song “Born Under Punches” a couple hours prior to finding them (note: they sound nothing like that song, it was just a funny bit of fate). Punches’ new EP is a light blend of electronica with folky pop–think a junior version of Sing Sing and you’re halfway there.
MP3: Punches – Day By Day
Sing it with me: “Step by step, day by day, fresh start over, a different hand to play.” Okay, so maybe it’s not a theme song from my childhood, but it’s certainly a nice song to have. Doubled vocals float along on a piano riff and a chord progression that reminds me a bit of “In the Aeroplane Over The Sea.” Beatiful.
Well, I’m off to WRFL’s staff meeting / picnic. Hopefully they’ll like my You Aint No Cassarole (just joking. I’ll probably pick up brownies on the way over).
