Weekend Music Twofer

 

New York City's Bleachers, fronted by Jack Antonoff, recently received some added buzz by collaborating with Bruce Springsteen on their 2020 single, "Chinatown."  Now they're out with a new album, "Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night," and a brand new single (co-written with Lana Del Ray), "Don't Go Dark," which we think illustrates Springsteen's influence on the band's music.

Our second song, "Out of Time," appeared on three  Rolling Stones albums:  "Aftermath" (1966 UK release), "Flowers" (1967 US release), and "Metamorphosis" (1975 release, with only Mick Jagger from the Stones performing).  The version from "Flowers" is the one we're most familiar with (and it's shorter by about 2 minutes), and is the one we're using.  Surprisingly, "Out of Time" has never been performed live by the Rolling Stones (along with all the other songs on the second side of the UK version of "Aftermath"!)!  Hope you enjoy the music, with Brian Jones adding a quirky but effective marimba, and set aside the Stones' patented mid-60's macho fronting!
