VOTD: The Hold Steady shows us ‘The Power of Love’

You probably didn’t expect someone admit to Huey Lewis’ coolness today, did you?

It’s too bad that Marnie Stern’s session with The A.V. Club’s “Undercover Series” wound up unusable due to technical difficulty, because I’d have been a lot more interested in hearing an interpretation of Huey Lewis from a very different artist.

However, with The Hold Steady, we do get to hear a couple of pretty solid, cheesy guitar solos from Tad Kubler and Steve Selvidge. Now close your eyes and try to re-envision “Back to the Future” through a Hold Steady lens.

Craig Finn — Clear Heart Full Eyes

The Hold Steady’s songwriter steps out on his own to write some songs about loneliness.

I think the best way to compare the songwriting material in 40-year-old Craig Finn’s first-ever solo album with the excellent stuff that constitutes his catalogue with Brooklyn-by-Minneapolis rockers The Hold Steady is to just embrace the truth that you can’t have fun all the time.

Steady as he goes

Finding success with The Hold Steady, why would Craig Finn want to take a break? To be alone again, naturally.
