Mary Bue’s “The Shit I Left In Duluth” is a favorite for us this month, as the track is able to refresh the alternative rock of the 1980s and 1990s. There are nods here to The Replacements, The Breeders, and Blondie. Dreamy vocals are matched perfectly with confident guitar riffs and a ropy, intense bass line. The narrative of Mary Bue will have listeners focusing on in, while subsequent listens will showcase the technical skill of the guitars, bass, and drums. We love how direct Bue is on this effort and want to hear more of this vibrant alt-rock.
