A story in Thursday's paper laments the lack of protest songs coming out in response to the burgeoning Occupy Wall Street movement. But North Carolina power-pop legends the dB's fill that void with "Revolution of the Mind," a terrific fist-waver that finds the original foursome of Peter Holsapple, Chris Stamey, Gene Holder and Will Rigby in fine form. You can download the song and check out two very of-the-moment videos here.
"Revolution of the Mind" is a teaser for the dB's reunion album, "Falling Off the Sky," which is due out next year. That's a mere three decades after the original lineup's last album, 1982's "Repercussion."
