New Bottle Rockets songs: Get On the Bus, Hard Times

MP3: The Bottle Rockets – “Get On the Bus” from Lean Forward, out August 11 on Bloodshot.

A happy little hoedown about the joys of taking public transportation. “With the bum change riders and their sacks of wine, and the young sharp-dressed ecological kind…” Great fiddle breakdown at the end. You can’t go wrong with the BROX, especially live. See them if you get a chance.

Also: The Bottle Rockets – “Hard Times”, which is a bit more of your standard, ZZ Top-ish blooze. “I ain’t broke down, I’m just out of gas.” And remember: Brian Henneman is the dude who played all the lead guitar on Wilco‘s debut A.M., despite what Chicago Magazine would have you believe.
