Song of the Day: "Summertime"

There seems to be something slightly subversive about Childish Gambino releasing such a simple track on the heels of the song of the summer. It's on par with half a dozen of Drake's recent tracks, but given the sequence of its release, the song is jejune (and all the Drake tracks are too).

Think about that when you're high-fiving and low-fiving your bro at the volleyball game this summer.

Song of the Day: "Crush"

I can't remember which of my friends in Canadia told me about Cigarettes After Sex (the band, not the act of smoking).

There's a 92% chance that it's a guy who looks really good naked, but that doesn't really narrow it down much from the pool of Canadians I know.

You know?

Song of the Day: "I'd Love If We Made It"

We're fucking in a car, shooting heroin
Saying controversial things just for the hell of it
Selling melanin and then suffocate the black men
Start with misdemeanors and we'll make a business out of them
And we can find out the information
Access all the applications that are hardening positions based on miscommunication
Oh! Fuck your feelings!
Truth is only hearsay!
We're just left to decay!
Modernity has failed us
Someone said that there needs to be some pretty serious punk rock emerging from this fucking nightmare of political stupidity and stupid politics. This is a good reminder that not all punk rock sounds like The Clash.

Song: "I'd Love It If We Made It"
Artist: The 1975

Song of the Day: "I Feel Energy"

Dirty Projectors are doing a really great job of insinuating themselves into my musical fandom.


They are joined by Amber Mark, and here's who the fuck she is.
