SXSW Song of the Day: Oh He Dead – Small Talk for Dead People

As opening lines go, Oh He Dead‘s “Small Talk for Dead People” starts off with a real grabber of a lyric:

Half-stoned in a funeral home
And I forgot my Xanax
It’s gonna be a long long afternoon
So let’s make small talk

What follows is a bit of a rumination on mortality from the Washington, D.C. indie soul band, but one that’s set to a light, funky tune, like a short story you can groove to. Check it out.

Oh He Dead play Parish on March 13 @ 1:00am, Radio Day Stage on March 14 @ 3:00pm, Antone’s on March 14 @ 1:00am and Victorian Room at The Driskill on March 16 @ 10:00pm. And maybe even a few more shows – it is SXSW, after all.
