MP3: Cold War Kids – “Minimum Day”
I’ve held a bit of an irrational grudge against the Cold War Kids since 2007 when we ran an interview with them by a new GLONO contributor whose writing read like P.R. copy. We tried to encourage him to put a little more personality in his stuff and he got offended. The whole thing left a bad taste in my mouth and for some reason I’ve taken it out on the Cold War Kids. It’s ridiculous, I know, but what can you do?
Anyway, this new song should clear away that baggage. It’s got more muscle than I remember this band having in the past. Not sure if that’s due to the addition of a new guitar player or what, but I like it. “Minimum Day” reminds me of the Go, which is certainly a good sign.
There’s also a dub version of the song available, but it sucks so don’t bother.

One thought on “Download the new Cold War Kids single: Minimum Day”
Just found an awesome cover they did of Leonard Cohen’s “There Is A War.” Definitely worth checking out if you ask me: http://filtermagazine.com/index.php/media/entry/watch_cold_war_kids_there_is_a_war. Can’t wait for his new album to come out next week!
