As he does every week, NPR Music writer and editor Stephen Thompson bring us a new song. This week it’s the super short “Change My Ways” by Tony Molina. The song is out on his album “Dissed And Dismissed” which also very short.

Thompson says that even though the album and the songs on it are quick, they pack the punch of longer pieces.

“The whole package stuffs 12 songs into less than 12 minutes, so this song ‘Change My Ways’ is actually kind of an epic at 72 seconds,” Thompson tells Here & Now’s Robin Young. “And what I love about Tony Molina’s music isn’t that his songs are short; it’s that they still feel complete. Everything I like about the song ‘Change My Ways,’ I’d like about it just the same if it were three times as long.”
