The Replacements, which currently consists of longtime members Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson, have been playing a new track called “Whole Foods Blues” at recent shows. The song is now streaming in a pretty decent fan-shot video (isn’t technology wonderful?). The slow, bluesy song details a sad trip to the grocery store, where Westerberg gets “A protein shake/ To keep [his] girlish figure.”
In December, the band released a dizzy, fiercely confident 24-minute jazzy improvisational song called “Poke Me in My Cage” on their SoundCloud. It’s not at all representative of the band’s classic style, but it’s good. They’ll be touring the U.S. this spring, as well as playing the Primavera Sound Festival this summer.
