New REM is out Tuesday- and it’s Amazing

Share this post

I’m blown away by the new REM. Great songs, mysterious at times, amped up at others, but cohesive and authentic in its feel. I love it. They’ve really found their footing  again on “Collapse Into Now”. Check out “UBerlin” and listen to the whole thing now on NPR if you like, it’s streaming there, or buy it Tuesday March 8th

Pat Ferrise grew up loving ”the punk rock” and “new wave.” His years at one of the nation’s top college radio stations ultimately led him to a 15-year run as music director of alternative music icon WHFS Washington/Baltimore. Rolling Stone magazine named him of the most influential programmers of the 90s. He’s recorded two albums under the moniker Trampoline for the now defunct SpinArt label. He lives in Baltimore and takes no credit for writing this bio.
