Moose Blood Stream Video For “Bukowski”

If you’ve missed your chance to see English band Moose Blood live, you’ll probably enjoy their latest music video.

Album: There’s Nothing Wrong With Me
Label: No Sleep Records
Genre: Rock

Seeing the name Major League pop up on iTunes when I click to listen to the band’s new record feels wrong. As long as I’ve been familiar with the band, Major League has represented that weird, pubescent period for hardcore-tinged pop-punk when the genre had to search for footing in a scene ruled predominantly by mall-core and neon-pop.
