Song of the Day - October 30, 2006

It is somewhat difficult to characterize Oxford Collapse's Remember the Night Parties. Employing a variety of influences ranging from Mission of Burma, Iggy Pop, Weezer, and Joy Division, I suppose it is the natural evolution of music given their previous influences. Despite the wide range of influences, this is a great fun listen. This is their first release for Sub Pop and the overall quality of this album is so good that picking a song of the day is extremely difficult and would probably vary on a daily basis due to my moods. Today, I give my vote to "Molasses" a jangly tune driven by bass and drums that reminded me of The Violent Femmes. It sounds as if they use a flute during one of the choruses, which I loved.
