MP3 of the Week: The Appreciation Post, "The Beating of a Lifetime"

In case the past 60 years of kids being in bands haven’t made it clear, parents just don’t understand. Especially the dickface dad we meet in the first few lines of “The Beating of a Lifetime” — a sparkly new jam off the new Work/Sleep EP from synth-toting post-punkers the Appreciation Post. “Beating” is a stirring “enough is enough” anthem for nonplussed youth outside Route 495, a fittingly posi backlash against the doldrums of the dull life — as well as the crumb-bums who claim to be over Moogs. As the EP title suggests, Work/Sleep is brimming with quarter-life-crisis angst fueled by post-collegiate gusto — a winning combination. You can download the whole durn EP for zilcho directly from the band’s Web site, and then you’ll primed for their EP-release party at T.T. the Bear’s this Friday. In the meantime, grab your MP3 of “The Beating of a Lifetime” below.
