Music for Animals – “Nervous in New York (Wallpaper. Remix)”

Music for Animals - "Nervous in New York (Wallpaper. Remix)" Is it too late to submit a new entry for Jam of the Summer? Ever since we interviewed Wallpaper. a little while back (podcast episode forthcoming), and Eric hipped us to this remix, it's been one of our favorite songs around the studio. The great thing about Wallpaper. remixes is the way they draw out the best qualities of the original song and the artist, so here you have a catchy anthemic Music for Animals track turned into something even more addictive and insistent. Music for Animals - [...]

Episode 140: Music for Animals

[podcast]http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/Music_for_Animals_Show.mp3[/podcast] This week's episode is presented by KQED Interactive. This week's featured band is Music for Animals, a San Francisco quartet mixing a fondness for classic rock-pop hooks with a stripped-down modern aesthetic. Very longtime listeners to the podcast will remember us first speaking with the group a few years ago, as part of an hour-long Playing in Fog-themed two-band interview, but with the release of a brand new EP titled If Looks Could Kill, we felt that it was high time to dedicate a full episode to Music for Animals. Like their self-titled album, Music for Animals' latest work [...]
