This Won’t Be a Waste of Your Time
It’s exceedingly rare for me to (a) post content here more than once a business day and/or (b) provide a stream to music. That’s simply not how I operate. But rules are made to be broken, and here’s a delightfully good reason to do so. The new single from Charleston SC* – based pop group The Explorers Club, “Don’t Waste Her Time.” If you dig faithful recreations of retro sounds that somehow remain fresh and new, then you must hear these guys. I have had the pleasure of seeing them live onstage twice, and let’s just say that Jaws. Will. Drop. Famed producer Mitch Easter (Let’s Active, REM) ran the boards for this new single. Do check it out, and keep your ear to the ground — as will I — for more Explorers Club news.

* Reportedly in the process of relocating to Nashville.
