Last October, Father/Daughter Records put out the Sports/Plush Split 7″ that paired two up-and-coming bands on its roster. Since that time, both have changed their names — with the former now going by Remember Sports and the latter, Pllush (just hold that “L” a little longer).

The tweaks are well-timed: both bands have excellent new LPs out in 2018. Remember Sports already got the ball rolling last month with Slow Buzz, and this Friday Pllush is following suit with their debut full-length, Stranger to the Pain. The album’s latest single, “Big Train,” is today’s SOTD.
