The Posies – “The Glitter Prize” (Stereogum Premiere)

At the beginning of August we posted about “Licenses To Hide,” the colorful, bombastic, ready-for-Broadway lead track from Seattle power pop quartet the Posies’ seventh album Blood/Candy. Broken Social Scene’s Lisa Lobsinger gave vocal assists on that one. The guys perform with Kay Hanley (Letters To Cleo) for the chillier, more straightforwardly driving “The Glitter Prize.”
