Peter Bjorn and John and 'Breakin'' and saving my life (and also RAC).

The new Peter Bjorn and John album has quite literally saved my life a few times over the last few weeks. It's been too long since their last LP, but at least they spent the time between releases writing a collection of kick ass tunes with not a clunker in the bunch.

My personal jam is "What You Talking About," but they sadly haven't posted that anywhere yet, so you'll have to make do with the slightly inferior (though still pretty dandy) RAC remix below.* And below that is the first official song off Breakin' Point, "Dominos." Did I also mention "Dominos is currently a free download as well? Get on that!

Another strong track is the lovely, summery "Do Si Do," but you'll just have to wait until June 10 when the album comes out to hear that one.

Mich and I have quite a history with this band—they may be the group we've seen together the most times—and if you're looking to see us in public we'll be at Taste Of Randolph when Peter Bjorn And John take the stage on June 19. They're live sets are always fabulous; even more so when they've got a great album powering the newer material.

Anyway, enough prattling. Listen up and get excited for one of the best albums of 2016 thus far.

*Wait! Hold the presses! While I was writing this I skipped around the interweb and discovered the band actually just released a video for "What You Talking Aboit," so you can hear the original version! Huzzah!
