Friday afternoon music update

Mp3s from Bruce Springsteen, Twin Shadow, and Mindy Misty; dirt-cheap, fantastic records from Twin Shadow and Night Minutes; reviews of Interpol’s latest, the Bear Quartet/the Skull Defekts split 7″, Thieves Like Us, Rasmus Kellerman (of Tiger Lou), and Night Minutes (featuring Anna Knutson of We Live in Trenches and Max J Hansson of Cut City).
