One of my favorite songs of 2007 The Tripwires' “Big Electric Light” was chosen as Song of the Day last Wednesday 1/2/08 on NPR.org. You can listen to a live stream of the song while reading Barbara Mitchell’s enthusiastic review, “…sounds classic to its core: Guitars chime, harmonies shine, and the rhythm section lopes along in an ode to making dreams come true. The result sparkles with such innocence and optimism, it's hard to believe it wasn't written 40 years ago.” on the Song of the Day site which also includes links to The Tripwires home page, their MySpace page and a link to Amazon.com where their fantastic new album Makes You Look Around can be purchased.
The Tripwires have also caught the attention of Joe Belock who has recently played several of their songs including “Big Electric Light” on his excellent Three Chord Monte show on New York station WFMU. You can check out his playlist and listen to an archived stream of the show here.
It’s great to see The Tripwires getting some of the national attention their music so richly deserves.
