Song Of The Day: The Chats – I’ve Been Drunk in Every Pub in Brisbane

Posted on by Paul in Song of the Day | Leave a comment

Sometimes all you want is a big, dumb, fun punk song to rock out to and with their latest release, Australia’s The Chats certainly deliver on that end.

“I’ve Been Drunk in Every Pub in Brisbane” is off The Chats’ upcoming album Get Fucked (out on August 19), and honestly, when they sing about getting drunk in every pub in Brisbane, I kind of believe it. I have no idea how many pubs there are in Brisbane (probably a lot) or whether it would even be possible to have gotten drunk in all of them, but much like Agent Fox Mulder of TV’s The X-Files, I want to believe.

Song Of The Day: …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead: Growing Divide

…And You Will Know Us by The Trail of Dead are kind of known for their big, epic productions, but with their 11th album XI: Bleed Here Now, the band may have even gone just a big bigger and more epic this time around. I mean, the opening track on the album is even entitled “Epic Attempts” – you can’t get more on the nose than that.

And while XI: Bleed Here Now certainly does offer up plenty of big, heavy, grandiose moments, the band also takes the time to showcase their softer side as well. Case in point: “Growing Divide”, a gentle, folkish ballad that also features fellow Austinite Britt Daniel. Check it out below.

XI: Bleed Here Now is out now via Dine Alone Records.
