The descriptions below are taken from this week’s release notes:

California rockers Dance Gavin Dance released new music earlier this year and took the charts by storm. “Prisoner”, the leading single off of their ninth studio album, Afterburner, got a lot of praise from critics and fans alike. The group characterizes Afterburner as musical progression, with a lot of experimental and genre-bending sounds incorporated. This experimental sound is not lost on “Prisoner”, which incorporates some funky and progressive roots. The song is about some mind-bending substances and offers up some religious concepts. The whole band will have a blast with Dance Gavin Dance’s “Prisoner”, especially folks who love experimental guitar riffs.

“Stacy’s Mom” by Fountains Of Wayne is an iconic anthem that early 2000s mixtapes were not complete without. A fun fact about “Stacy’s Mom” is that it was initially inspired by their bassist’s childhood friend, who had a crush on his grandmother back when they were younger. This upbeat track will be sure to trigger some nostalgia in you as you belt the words you already have memorized into your microphone.
