Bad Veins, 'Fake Baby': A Music Mix exclusive

Posted on

We have to say, we do enjoy a two-man (or two-person; no offense to Jack and Meg!) band — after all, history is littered with great duos, from Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock to the Black Keys.

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?
