Morninglory’s employee pick of the week: Pissed Jeans’ Hope for Men
Barely a month old, Hope for Men by Pissed Jeans is Morninglory employee Dave Esquer’s pick of the week.

Just Play Music’s employee pick of the week: Peter Gabriel’s’ Passion
The powerful atmospheric tones brought about by Peter Gabriel’s Passion is this month’s pick from Corey, a Just Play Music employee. Passion is the soundtrack to the movie The Last Temptation of Christ and is, Corey admits, even more satisfying than the movie itself-which is a difficult feat to be sure, as Scorsese is not an easy man to upstage. “The atmospherics are beautiful from start to finish,” Corey said. “When I first heard it I was like, I’m going to listen to this constantly.”
