Song of the Day: "The Mother We Share"


I keep saying "I need to post something from CHVRCHES" and also "why the fuck do they have to spell their name CHVRCHES?!"

Regardless, they're Scottish.

Song of the Day: "Virtue Makes You Beautiful"

Slutty girls, please stop dressing like sluts.

That seems to be the theme of this total piece of shit adaptation of OneDirection's song... the one with the title (I honestly don't know or care).

And while the song is about dressing modest (as opposed to dressing modestly which is about the process of dressing and not the outcome of the dressing), the title uses the word virtue as opposed to modest (or modesty).  Long story short: sluts are bad.

PS: No fat chicks.

And for some reason this reminds me that National Coming Out Day is some time this week.

Song of the Day: "I Can Hardly Make You Mine"

I keep forgetting stuff I want to post (Bastille? Chvrches?) but here's new Cults which I'm not forgetting since I only just remembered it.

And it's pretty good, even if it's not whatever it is I'm forgetting.

Song of the Day: "When You Touch Down From Outer Space"

You Don't Know Anything is also the name of Stornoway's new EP... in addition to being true about you generally.

I would be hard pressed to name a track from their second album but I distinctly remember this track, which didn't make the album, as the show closer when I saw them last whatever month I saw them in. Which is a convoluted way of calling this the standout song of that night, whenever that night was (it was at night though, I'm fairly certain).

Their opening act, Horse Thief or Indian Chief, was really good.
