New Hold Steady Song - “Sequestered in Memphis”

posted by on May 20 at 11:14 AM

The Hold Steady have posted a new single on MySpace. It’s called “Sequestered in Memphis” and it is, as it always seems to be, about drinking and dancing and making out in a bathroom—“In bar light, she looked alright/In daylight she looked desperate.”

Nothing really new to the sound, it’s in the same vein as Boys and Girls in America, but I like it. Lots of sing-a-long parts, handclapping, it’ll make for a good dance party when they play the Block Party Saturday July 26.

The new album, Stay Positive, will be out July 15.
