They Know How To Market To Me

This article in Salon by David Marchese points out that the latest releases by The Killers and The Hold Steady have one thing in common: their love of early Bruce Springsteen.

Albums like the Killers’ “Sam’s Town” and the Hold Steady’s “Boys And Girls In America” show the continuing popularity “…of big, brawny rock ‘n’ roll…that speaks in the language of roaring engines and chugging guitars.”

Time to hit Sound Garden again.
