So, tomorrow is my last day at the creative agency I’ve been working at for two years now, Mirrorball. New year, new job, and that finds me starting anew at this amazing agency called Code and Theory.

Because of this, I keep thinking of this song, Saves the Day’s “At Your Funeral”, which has always been one of my favorite songs, and even though the subject matter is super dark for what Saves the Day is used to doing, it’s pretty much perfect.

Video: The Coathangers - “Trailer Park Boneyard”

Bratty but beautiful has always been the modus operandi for the girls in The Coathangers, who, along with Mike Moore, director of their previous clip for “Hurricane”, take on the trailer park and the dust & scratches effects in Final Cut Pro for “Trailer Park Boneyard”, the latest single from their Suicide Squeeze effort Larceny & Old Lace. They swing and thrash and drive and hang all in the confines of the dusty “neighborhood” environments of the trailer park and, surprise surprise, drummer Stephanie Luke has a new haircut update, so be on the lookout. Cutie pies.


Stream: Jonah Matranga - “I’m Dying Tomorrow (Alkaline Trio cover)”

Jonah Matranga (of onelinedrawing, Far and New End Original) covered one of our favorite straight-ahead “goodbye” pop-punk songs, Alkaline Trio’s “I’m Dying Tomorrow”, and you can hear the exclusive stream over at the Alternative Press Web site. It’s much more subdued, as you’d expect it to be, but the sincerity shines through even easier than the original. A Tribute To Alkaline Trio is out August 30 on Pacific Ridge Records.
