It's an 80-degree Friday here in Washington, DC and if that wasn't nice enough, The Hold Steady released the third single from their forthcoming record, Heaven is Whenever (out 5/4) today as well. Of the three, "The Weekender" probably my favorite to date. It's got such a cool and immense sound...

The second one they put out is called "Rock Problems"...

...and the first one was "Hurricane J."
