The Big Stir Records’ Digital Single of the Week — Pop Dudes Ridin’ My Car

The Big Stir Records’ Digital Single of the Week — Pop Dudes Ridin’ My Car

The Big Stir Records’ Digital Single of the Week revolution continues! Presented this week are two sparkling new songs by Popdudes! “Ridin’ In My Car” and “Daytime Nighttime Suffering” drop on Friday, February 28th and are available for pre-order at www.bigstirrecords.com/big-stir-digital-singles now! Even though no one was aware they went away—or that they were even somewhere in the first place—Popdudes are BACK, baby. Back with what, you may (or may not) be asking? Back with a freshly minted, newly recorded digital single as part of the far-out Big Stir Single Series. These two brand spankin’ (ow!) new songs are the first Popdudes recordings since the last ones, and as such shall serve to further the legend of this roving, raving band of misfits from Orange County, CA. Okay, there is no “legend of the band” to further and Michael Simmons and John Borack are far from misfits—they’re more like malcontents, actually. In any event, these two crackin’ pop toons—covers of NRBQ’s “Ridin’ in My Car” and the 1979 Wings B-side “Daytime Nighttime Suffering”—are certain to mollify your tired eardrums. Simmons imbues the Q number with a Beach Boys-tinged loveliness and does his best Macca (and he IS the best Macca doer I know) on the flip side. Borack, who tracked his drums at the Amazing Karen Basset’s studio in Hollywood, tries his damndest to stay out of Simmons’ way and not foul things up. We hope you love these songs as much as we love lunch at Norm’s. If not, we’ll be sad.
