My latest column at PopMatters is up: “Bruce Springsteen, ‘The Ties That Bind,’ the Working Class and Authenticity.” Which pretty much explains what the column is about.
Also, I didn’t post my previous column here. That one was part 2 of this series on working class music and focused on John Lennon’s “Working Class Hero.” Read it here.
In other news, The Blind Engineer went into the studio in early January. We came away with twelve songs recorded, five for an EP which is the top priority, the rest for a full album. With any luck they’ll both be out in 2016. No titles yet.
A lot more going on behind the scenes but that’s all the info for now.
