Mainland- Debut "Permission" Will Stir Up Your Heart and Clench Your Fist
Brooklyn based Mainland's new track Permission Slip is like an injection of defiance. I mean truthfully I was couch potato-ing it after a long day at work and this track made me want to burst out, run down the hill and confront my crazy lady neighbor who burns the leaves and grass so much that it makes my place smell like an ash tray. Ok, I didn't do that but the important thing is that Mainland gave me the musical shove. I think if I listen to it enough I may grow some balls. The run away beat and snarl in the lyrics with a tinge of somber made me think of early Drums, The Killers and the Buttertones all smooshed into one. Pushing play again.
