Song of the Week: Cold War Kids “So Tied Up” (featuring Bishop Briggs) the 3rd single off upcoming new album

“So Tied Up” was released on March 16, 2017 via Capitol records as the 3rd single off of L.A. Divine, the 6th studio album by Cold War Kids

Cold War Kids had a huge hit with “First” from their last album that it seems its been a shorter wait for new material. They flow right into this next album cycle smoothly with three solid single releases, “Love Is Mystical”, “Can We Hold On?”, and now “So Tied Up”. Each have been selected as Featured 5 songs of their given release weeks. The videos for these songs can be viewed below.

The Kids collaborated with rising star Bishop Briggs for this track and the result is damn good. Look for a more blues-rock influenced album this time around.

L.A. Divine is scheduled for an April 7th, 2017 release date – just a couple weeks away, as of this writing. The “So Tied Up” single can be purchased on Amazon here.

So (so tied up)
We’ve been here before
I’m so (so tied up)
You want something more
Lover, best friend, my worst enemy
You know I won’t let you get away

Featured Playlist: Palatable Punk


This week’s featured playlist is my ‘Palatable Punk’ playlist. As you may have read on the site, I am the de facto DJ at my day office job. I play a lot of different music but keep it to the genres the majority of people like. I put this playlist together to give punk rock a bit of a listen but as you can see, all the songs are what I call ‘palatable’ for the common listener. Unfortunately this playlist excludes LOTS of great punk bands that have an edgier sound so what I recommend doing is making your own punk playlist and taking from this one what you want 😀

As with most playlists, this one is best listened to on random. Enjoy!
