So-and-so is releasing a new five-track EP in a few months, your problematic fave dropped a pretty risque new video and that washed up band that no one has even thought of for a good decade now, has decided to reunite and head out on a world tour. These are the things I need to post at a fervent pace, to not only keep up with the over-saturated blogosphere, but to harness the steady stream of emails that will inevitably continue their high-pressured pursuit into my inbox all hours of the day for the remainder of the week, (and probably on the weekend too, depending on the publicist.)

So to combat the rat-race, we're offering a content compromise in the form of our new daily column, Live From The Gutter - an afternoon recap of the day's press releases and the contents of my 405 email.

Gosh Pith deliver new single 'In My Car'

"In My Car is about trying to get someone into the car. I don’t have a car currently but Josh does, I just wanted to talk about being impatient and focusing on one moment, one question, one request. We wrote the song pretty fast because it is about such a microcosm of interaction - the whole 3 minute song is about a 10 second interaction of pleading or telling someone to get in the car. We were a bit sick of hearing music about long winded concepts and grandiose meta themes - so we said we’d write a song about a single powerful moment in time, and we did. Tiny moments can be just as poignant as the big moments in life."
