When Sony and Phillips ushered in the birth of the compact disc thirty years ago, the world was a very different place. The country where the first CD was pressed was called West Germany, and the world somehow entertained itself without Super Mario Brothers or Reddit.-DVICE
It's been so long since I have a bought a CD. Wait! Not true, I bought one a week ago at a Starbucks, of all places. Do people do that? Am I the first person to succumb to impulse buying of music at a coffee shop? Perhaps Starbucks sells more CDs than Best Buy these days. Doubtful, but according to the inter-webs, they sold 4.4 million CDs in 2008.
Enough with the history lesson I hear you tweeting...
"I came to have some fun."
Communist Daughter is an American rock band from, where else but, Minneapolis, MN.
A few years ago John Solomon walked away from music. After a long struggle with addiction and a brief stint in jail he broke up his critically acclaimed band Friends Like These and moved to a small town in Wisconsin. And supposedly that was that.
Even though Solomon left music, music never left him. After a long hiatus, he called some friends to come to Wisconsin and demo up a new album.... now fiance Molly Moore, Adam Switlick, Jonathan Blaseg, and Al Weiers. If you already know who Communist Daughter is, perhaps you are Grey's Anatomy fan? I have never seen the show, but I feel like I have reviewed a dozen great bands who cite that as their jump into the mainstream. Enjoy this song off the bands latest EP, Lions and Lambs released this year in January.
Communist Daughter - City Love
Look for a new album from Communist Daughter and even a new LP from Friends Like These very soon.
