Propulsive Cincinnati rockers Bad Veins, who have shared the stage with various indie all-stars, including Silversun Pickups, the Hold Steady, Cursive, and Apples in Stereo, carry on the it-takes-two-to-make-a-thing-go-right tradition on their <a href="” target=”_blank”>self-titled debut, which came out last week on Dangerbird Records (home to said Silversuns, as well as the Dears and Dappled Cities).
Below, an exclusive b-side, “Fake Baby,” from the album — and for good measure, a YouTube stream of our favorite track that did make the album: “Gold and Warm.” Tell us what you think, music mixers: How do Bad Veins stand up in the history of musical duo-opoly?
