Song of the Day: 'They Don't Know' by Jennifer Clavin

I've made my love for Bleached known in recent years. But it was only after following the Instagram account of Jennifer Clavin -- whose retro singing and songwriting aligns perfectly with her Old Hollywood beauty -- did I fully understand why I adore her so. Turns out she grew up in the San Fernando Valley listening to 45s by Cyndi Lauper, Debbie Harry Siouxsie, the Bangles, PrinceJohnny Thunders, Husker Du, the Replacements and the Cure -- played on the Big Bird record player her mother bought her -- is an Obama fan, has a hot daddy and is a cat freak. Need I say more? Here, she covers another of my heroes, the late/great Kirsty MacColl. And I thought they didn't make 'em like this anymore!

Did I mention that she once shared Blondie's "Slow Motion" video?!!!!
