Man it’s hard to feel that anything is possibly amiss in the world when we have a new song from Teenage Fanclub that feels like a warm, sparkly cloud of pure goodness. Tempering the sadness of losing another great pioneer in power pop, this feels like a blessing. It’s eminently hummable and sticks in my head right away, showing how no one can write ‘em like Teenage Fanclub.
