It’s been one year since the financial reform, Dodd-Frank, was signed by President Obama. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau officially opens today. Commentator Bethany McLean wondered where the anger from the financial crisis has gone. Grover Norquist’s no-new-tax pledge is becoming bigger than himself.

Express Scripts is buying out Medco Health Solutions. Metlife is selling its banking operations. And there may be a deal in the works for Greece. Here are the songs we played:

  • Drifter – Wild NothingBuy
  • The Fun Powder Plot – Wild BeastsBuy
  • Soft – Washed OutBuy
  • Perth – Bon IverBuy
