PopMatters Premieres A Fragile Tomorrow's Title Track "Make Me Over (Noddy Holder)"
International Magazine of cultural criticism, PopMatters premiered the title track from A Fragile Tomorrow's forthcoming album "Make Me Over". Here's what they had to say:
Ubiquitous in the UK, a classic rock curiosity on North America, it’s high time Slade was given a proper critical reevaluation on this continent. Until that happens, though, the glam rockers remain something for young people to discover. And who knows, maybe someone who hears this terrific new track by A Fragile Tomorrow, written in tribute to Slade and their singer Noddy Holder, in addition to enjoying the South Carolina band’s boisterous powerpop will be compelled to delve into Slade’s wonderful discography.

PopMatters Premieres Seth Glier's New Song!
Download it now on iTunes!
Popmatters shared the exclusive premiere of Seth's new song "It's A Bitch (Craigslist)". This hilarious live track, recorded at The Ark in Ann Arbor, MI on Seth's "If I Could Change One Thing" tour, is a mostly-true, unfortunate break-up story involving the popular site Craigslist.
When asked about the inspiration behind the song, Seth said, "I wrote this song with my friend Steve Seskin, and to be honest, I had no intention of writing a tune like this. I knocked on his hotel room door one morning and he opened the door and sang me the chorus. He encouraged me to "go with it" and within a few hours we had a pretty memorable song. It's all pretty much true....unfortunately."
