It’s a pretty frigid morning here in Philadelphia, but this is bound to warm you up. Pissed Jeans‘ awesome new full-length Honeys, out next Tuesday on Sub Pop Records, is streaming via Spin.com. It’s eleven tracks and forty-ish minutes of the Philly crew do what it does so freaking well- high-energy, cathartic protopunk-styled jams, peppered with social criticism and self-effacing introspection. Listen to it here, and get stoked to thrash out to this in a week and a half when Pissed Jeans headlines Underground Arts on February 15. (Details at the XPN Concert Calendar.)
WXPN’s Twelve Days of Local Christmas continues today with the song “Christmas Time Again” by SPIN, a Philly four piece not afraid to rock. The band recently released The Scream Inside EP, three songs of radio ready alternative rock. The 12 Days of Local Christmas compilation is curated by XPN mid-day host Helen Leicht and the songs will be played daily during My Morning Download on the Morning Show with Michaela Majoun and on Helen’s local oick of the day. Below, download “Christmas Time Again (I’ll Be Good Next Year).” You can download the entire Twelve Days of Local Christmas compilation here.
