The Patron Saints of Indie (and if you weren’t around for college radio and what was then dubbed “progressive music, you have no idea what I’m talking about) have somewhat quietly released a free mp3, “Oh My Heart.”
Released in early February, the song seems a bit like Automatic for the People, which is probably the last great album the band released … or maybe it’s the last album I purchased.
Anyway, if you don’t know R.E.M., here’s a free taste of the latest version. If you love R.E.M., you probably already have this. If you know R.E.M., but have forgotten to look out for them, well, this is for you.
