Much to my utter excitement, Violent Femmes has finally, finally released their first EP in over fifteen years in honor of Record Store Day. The band has premiered Happy New Year, which features four new tracks that you can stream below.

Bad Movies With Great Soundtracks

Have you ever seen a movie so bad you wanted to hate it, but something was holding you back and you couldn’t dislike it entirely? I have a theory on the matter: the redeemable quality that saved those movies from your hatred was the soundtrack. We all know the effect that music can have, especially on us as individuals, and I think you might agree that it includes making not-so-good movies into relatively tolerable ones.
