Day 128: Summer’s For Music – Frank Turner’s “The Way I Tend To Be”

by Tom Noonan

England’s folk-punk bannerman went full pop on his most recent album, Tape Deck Heart.  One of the songs worth remembering from that experiment is the light and redemptive “The Way I Tend To Be”.  It’s a great, swollen pop song kept grounded by the earnestness of its singer.  I could get down with this type of radio rock.
