Song Of The Day: Shitkid – Get jealous

Back in 2018, Sweden’s Shitkid made a big impression on me during their performance at that year’s edition of SXSW. It was easily one of the most fun and memorable shows of the entire week – bandleader Asa Söderqvist’s anarchic playfulness led to a sense that pretty much anything could happen over the course of their set and the band’s energy and attitude definitely had me sold – so much so that I had to go see the band there again during this year’s edition (and will likely do so again next year – the band has been confirmed for SXSW 2020).

During their second journey to Austin earlier this year, Söderqvist and her bandmate Lina Molarin Ericsson found a bit of time to slip into the studio for some recording sessions that would end up resulting in their latest release Duo Limbo/”Mellan himmel å helvete”, an album which sees them singing songs in their native Swedish for the first time. The album also sees the band collaborating with The Melvins, Paul Leary of Butthole Surfers, and Josh Freese, who’s played with pretty much everyone – look it up.

“Get jealous” is the lead single off Duo Limbo/”Mellan himmel å helvete”. Check it out below.

Duo Limbo/”Mellan himmel å helvete” is out on January 24 2020 via PNKSLM Records.

Song Of The Day: Johnny Marr – Armatopia

Johnny Marr clearly won Twitter this week.

When a fan inquired as to whether a Smiths reunion was going to happen, Marr shot back with a brilliant response: “Nigel Farage on guitar.” Classic. A couple days later and I’m still laughing.

And while it looks like a Smiths reunion is most definitely not in the cards, Marr is still putting out great music under his own name. Check out the video for his latest single “Armatopia”, released earlier this year:

Song Of The Day: Wilderado – Surefire

Days are getting shorter, pumpkin spice is everywhere, and the urge to chill out (literally here in Chicago) and hibernate is among us. In the spirit of everything laid back, feel-good, cuddle up and tune in, we have the gift of Wilderado‘s new single, “Surefire”.

The quartet, from Tulsa, OK, has been producing highly acclaimed records since 2016, wowing critics and fans alike, most recently with 2018’s Favors EP. A few months ago, Wilderado was back in action with “Surefire” – a four-minute ode to all things father time, stars in the sky, and the meaning of life. The song is beautifully composed, with smooth lyrics and dynamic chords that will have you putting this song on repeat.

As the track itself says better than I ever could, “I’m a sucker for some harmony” and this is where I’m getting my fix this fall.

Song Of The Day: Failed Flowers – Faces

Anna Burch‘s solo debut Quit The Curse was easily one of the best albums of 2018, a perfect collection of sweet, jangly, poppy tunes such as “Tea Soaked Letter” and “2 Cool 2 Care” that burrowed their way into my brain and stayed there like all good earworms do. It was through Burch’s music that I discovered her friend and occasional tourmate Fred Thomas, who, prior to Burch’s solo debut, was also her bandmate in Michigan indie rock band Failed Flowers.

And now Burch and Thomas are revisiting that project with a new Failed Flowers song released as part of Slumberland Records‘ 30th Anniversary Singles Club. “Faces” sees Burch taking the lead and the song sounds very much of a piece with anything off of Quit The Curse, but with a touch more distortion. Check it out.
