Songs that missed our Top 50 Singles list, but at least one of our writers loves.

The Von Bondies shot their wad in 2008 by releasing a four-song EP with the most stellar tracks off the 2009 album Love, Hate, and Then There’s You. Frontman Jason Stollsteimer has gone through bassists and guitarists like flu season Kleenex over the past decade, and apparently decided to embrace that by not listing any band members at all in the new disc’s liner notes. 


But when he continues to make rock perfection like “Pale Bride”, no matter what you (or Jack White) think about Stollsteimer, all is forgiven.

That band that sorta sounded like the White Stripes now sorta sounds like the Killers. Catchy, though.
