Song In My Head #23: “The Nu Temptations” by Redd Kross

I’m amazed by Redd Kross and their 35 years of recording, but the band’s continual evolution is the real accomplishment. Some people prefer the punk/hardcore of the band’s teenage years. Others point to the poppier Neurotica and Third Eye albums, or the hard rock influence apparent on 1993’s Phaseshifter. I’m partial to all of it, especially since the harmonies of Jeff and Steve McDonald are usually a given. It’s always an unexpected treat when a band’s most recent album turns out to be my favorite, so I’m passing the joy on to you. From 2012’s Researching The Blues, here is “The Nu Temptations.”
