This version of "New Day Rising" was recorded during a live radio session on WRIR in August, and is absolutely scorching--fitting for one of Husker Du's rawest, most intense tracks. Hearing PJ Sykes scream the song's title over and over as he slashes at his distorted guitar is an invigorating experience, and makes me realize that all along, mid-period Husker Du was probably the comparison I should have been reaching for when trying to explain Hoax Hunters as a band. You just don't hear this kind of thing enough these days, so thank goodness Hoax Hunters are bringing this sound back. - RVAMag
