Joe Scarborough, in addition to being a former Republican congressman and superficially anti-Trump talking head, is also a musician. Like fellow titans of rock Bon Jovi and Daughtry before him, he has taken his surname as his band name: they're called Scarborough, and they have a new EP called Welcome to the Monkey House out today. According to a statement from the man himself, the new music is inspired by Weezer--a not entirely unexpected choice for a corny dude with plastic-rimmed glasses, though a little under Joe's age bracket--and M83. It's hard to imagine an unlikelier reference point than the second one. https://twitter.com/maxwelltani/status/898558842388262912 Listen to the new record below, if you're so inclined. If you can hear the traces of Anthony Gonzalez's grandiose and emotive synth-pop in these songs, you've got a keener ear than me.
