Kids music act Hullabaloo along with Stefan Shepherd of the Zooglobble kids music blog hosted a little something called the Kindie Songwriting Club (I’m guessing that’s Kid + Indie…). The idea was for multiple songwriters to write a song about the same subject. A reader pitched the idea of “Green Beans Everywhere”, and that’s the one they ran with.

So now Hullabaloo is offering all five resulting songs for free from Bandcamp. The songs were written by Steve Denyes, Johnny Bregar, Matt Clark, the Hollow Trees, and Charity and the JAMband, respectively. Now, go and eat your greens.

1. “Independence Day” – Bruce Springsteen


Springsteen’s reckons with his father in this utterly mesmerizing and heartbreaking take on the breakdown of Father and Son from The River, with the Boss ultimately lamenting that he has to “say goodbye, it’s Independence Day” as he departs from his father.

Britney may not hate the Man, but she definitely hates the paparazzi. Her latest video for “I Wanna Go” is no exception; Britney welds a microphone like its a whip, knocking men to their feet while smiling, and quickly turning from sweet to sour during a press conference.


But this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Britney hate on her constant watchdogs.

On their website, Explosions in the Sky graciously announce the debut of the video for the track “Last Known Surroundings” from their latest release, Take Care, Take Care, Take Care. This is the band’s first official video, and it is embedded below. And just so PopMatters can preempt any snark, no, there isn’t any football footage in the clip. That joke isn’t funny anymore, anyway.

Jazz-punk smartasses Gutbucket released Flock earlier this year, their fifth album after being together for 12 years. It’s very much a “this-is-what-we-do” statement after trying to justify their existence for so long. Be it saxophonist Ken Thomson’s jazz leanings, guitarist Ty Citerman’s hard rock distortion or the fact that the rhythm section of drummer Adam D. Gold and bassist Eric Rockwin are caught somewhere in the middle, Flock strangely doesn’t favor a particular style, composer or performer. This is democracy, in action.

The below video is a lighthearted look back at the band’s 12 year history and some live footage of these new songs. Titled include “Fuck You and Your Hipster Tie” and “Born Again Atheist Suite: Part Two – Sacrificial Vegan.”
