I first came across Sports back in February on a great bill at Baby’s All Right in Williamsburg and fell in love with these impossibly catchy hooks and lyrics that capture the feeling of being young and in transition — be it the beginning or end of a relationship, or the looming real-life responsibilities after college is over and figuring out what to do and who to be. Those themes are all over Sports’ tremendous new album, All Of Something, and the song “Get Bummed Out,” which is a portrait of feeling the all consuming ache of love for someone but paralyzed by not being able to tell them. It’s so good, so I had to write about it for NPR Music’s Songs We Love series.
