Head over to Southpaw Records right now and listen to “Paddy’s Birthday,” from a new 7″ by Oakland’s Shannon and the Clams. Seriously, just go there now. If this heart-wrenching ballad doesn’t crack your bitter, jaded facade, you might as well just pack it in.

The new 7″ is available (in both regular and color versions) over at the Southpaw store.
