Song of the Day: "Distracting Me"

Alex Lilly + someone's legs
Someone wrote that this song is "light but not slight." That's actually a great description for this art rock/chamber rock/post something (everything's post something) track.

In times past I might have likened her sound to St. Vincent and meant that derisively. Today I will do that with considerable respect. St. Vincent kicked ass live, and Lilly has real talent (she's currently touring as part of Beck's band, and has worked with The Bird and the Bee, along with acts I've never heard of [which doesn't mean there not any good and/or popular]).

Her solo debut 2% Milk comes out early next year. But since you're special, you can listen to the first single now.

You're welcome.

Song of the Day: "Get Out"

Apparently CHVRCHES released their third album this year. I guess I was distracted by something shiny.

Sounds like the album is solid. (Oh, like you didn't already know that...)

Song of the Day: "Spinning"

The March Divide are from San Antonio, and came to my attention via some promoter that treats this blog like it's something worth sending promotional emails to.

And today, we're appreciative of that fact.

This track is totally catchy!

Song of the Day: "Trigger Bang"

My opinions on Lily Allen are probably not among the few fucks she might be giving these days (which is fair--I'm not super concerned with her opinions on me), but, much like Hillary Clinton, I really want her to be better. Better at what she does, better at what she represents.

Song of the Day: "What a Time to be Alive"

I came late to the Superchunk party, but I'm glad I got there.

I don't know if they're the best lens for the current fuck show, but they're certainly a good lens.
