The Tim Version’s new song evokes The Replacements, beer, twang, tears

The Tim Version’s love for The Replacements is no secret. Not only does the Florida band’s name seem to reference The Replacements’ album Tim, the group has appeared on a Replacements tribute album. But there’s more than Paul Westerberg worship happening on The Tim Version’s new album, Ordinary Life. Equally reminiscent of the grizzled twang of Lucero and the tattered anthems of Against Me!, Ordinary Life is a raucous yet brooding document of rootsy punk, best heard on the tear-stained, bittersweet track “Funny Movies,” which is being debuted here. The Replacements influence is faint, but there’s no denying The Tim Version is achin’ to be as smart, spirited, and shambolic as its hero.

Ordinary Life will be released August 12 on No Idea Records.
