Record of the Day – “Labor Of Love” by The Connection


What a cool ass song! Seriously, give a listen to this new song from the upcoming album by The Connection. When you’ve finished and you are not convinced you just listened to something that is everything a hit single should be, drop me a line , I might not have the time to answer you but at least I’ll know you’re a little crazy. If you dig cool vinyl, pre-order now and it will be shipped to you later.. Labor Of Love LP (Yellow Vinyl – limited edition)

Since I want to make sure this hits The Hype Machine, I am including The Bandcamp version, which also includes “Pathetic Kind Of Man ” which will get you to spin some early Kinks albums…

From the folks at Rum Bar Records.

They’ve been applauded by rock pioneer, visionary, and former Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham. They’re championed
by E Street legend Little Steven Van Zandt and heard just about every day on the Underground Garage – with 9 singles in heavy rotation, including 5 ” Coolest Songs In The World” . New England’s newest hit-makers The Connection are on a roll…

Geoff Palmer, Brad Marino, and the boys in the band recently hit the studio with legendary punk, rock ‘n’ roll icon, producer, songwriter, and historian Andy Shernoff of the Dictators. “Labor Of Love” is the soundtrack to the love child of Nick Lowe, Flamin’ Groovies, the Kinks, and Graham Parker stumbling through the Bowery with the swagger of Exile-era Rolling Stones; finishing off the night by passing out on the Ramones’ studio floor.

“Labor of Love” features scorching rockers like “Red White And Blue”; punk-rock ravers like “Don’t Come Back” (featuring resident Riverdale, Cheat, and Mope Dan Vapid on his trademark backup vox); slung-back, beer- swillin’ tales of the road like “Let The Jukebox Take Me”; and the Connection’s trademark jangly garage- power- pop of “Circles” and “Good Things”. Packing a one/two punch in under 30 minutes, “Labor of Love” is jammed with 10 soon-to-be-new classics that all the mods AND the rockers will be screaming for.
