The Broken West: Perfect Games

Thanks to Chromewaves for leading us in the direction of a new mp3 by the Broken West, whose record I Can’t Go On I’ll Go On was one of my favorites of 2007.

Perfect Games, the first single, comes from Now or Heaven, to be released on Merge on Sept. 9.

I liked Pitchfork’s description of the song as containing “warm-weather lyrics.” It’s a song to pop on for the early-morning wake-up and to remember to grab the day before it’s gone: “We waste our time when we could be righting every wrong.”

I’m serious, though: Have these guys written a tune that isn’t catchy? I wonder.

BONUS: Live on WOXY from November (remember?)
