Click to listen to Craig Wedren's 'I Know'

Craig Wedren's latest album, Wand, finds the veteran indie rocker sounding revitalized following a reunion with his old band Shudder to Think. The record plays up Wedren's versatile songwriting talent and his gorgeous, wonderfully elastic voice, but the best cuts play up a rocking intensity that has been missing from his work in recent years. "I Know," the disc's heaviest cut, is super-charged and beat-heavy, with Wedren's voice taking on a gleefully mischievous tone as he sings, "It's fun to treat you badly." Wand is in stores now, but you can download "I Know" for free here.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
