"Better Dig Two" suggests duality, which is appropriate: The Band Perry play with loud and soft dynamics on their new track for a mix of clang and twang. The family country band shifts from subdued hand claps and banjo finger-picking to explosive choruses flush with huge guitar crashes and Kimberly Perry's searing hot siren calls. It's a rugged sound for the siblings, but one they balance well with moments of delicate melody. "Better Dig Two" will be on the Band Perry's still-untitled second album, which is due next spring.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
