Track of the Day: 'Obligated'

Past Tracks If you have a soft spot for buzzy, indie rock with straight-from-the-garage tunefulness and a DIY ethic, you'll find much to enjoy in this track from Philadelphia's Bedroom Problems. It's a wonderful snapshot of that period in your life when work and other obligations get in the way of quality time. Sounds like it's bringing frontwoman Maria Sciarrino down. Or, perhaps what's getting her down is a non-committal guy, if I've got the story right. Anyway, this set-up may not make for a great Friday night, but it does make for a great single.
