New Music: The Hold Steady, Silver Jews

The lead singles from two of the summer most anticipated rock records...yay! From the Hold Steady's forthcoming Stay Positive LP, we get "Sequestered in Memphis," which follows the Steady's typical Springsteen/Replacements blueprint, and from the Silver Jews forthcoming Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea, we get "Strange Victory, Strange Defeat," which follows the Jews' typical humorous, Reckoning-like blueprint. Yeah, no surprises here, but, hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

The Hold Steady - Sequestered in Memphis
Silver Jews - Strange Victory, Strange Defeat
