The Broken Remotes - "Boxer's Arm"

Back in February, LA locals The Broken Remotes released a single called "Boxer's Arm" -- in December '08 , lead singer Jon Leahy told me he'd broken his arm right before the recording sessions started in December. Ironically enough the name of the fracture was the Boxer's Fracture.

I love the mix of urgency and stagnation in the guitars. It sounds like something is trying to build up but there's a dam holding it back -- just like the weariness in Leahy's voice, and the lyrics about a lover who knows something is wrong but is just waiting for all hell to break loose.

Hear it for yourself:
