Maybe you're like me, and maybe you've been listening to a lot of mall punk lately (by choice or not)? And maybe you remember last week when we posted that new video for They Were Stars' new single, "Every Now and Then," perhaps? Well, either way, I kinda dig the song. Can't help it, really. Maybe it's the Weezer influence? Who knows?
Anyway, on that front, if you are, indeed, like me (and God help you), then you;d do well to head on over to AbsolutePunk.net--the Internet bible of mall punk, really--where you can go ahead and download an mp3 of the Dallas-bred not-quite-mall-punky-but-guilty-by-association They Were Stars track in the forums. For free, yo.
