You guys know I think The Elms are the real deal, right?  They work hard, tour around in a van, playing sweaty, greasy, soulful music for 10 or 100 or 1,000 people at a time.  The Elms seem to think rock and roll matters.  Gotta get behind that, because it’s the difference between music that means something and all the rest of the stuff out there.  Here’ s the new video for the hook-laden “Back to Indiana”. (I think it’s golden when bands make MTV-ish videos today.  The new retro…). Rock forward…
