Song Of The Day: Prism Bitch – Tits Off

“I want you to dance your tits off!”

That lyric, taken from Prism Bitch‘s “Tits Off”, certainly provides an evocative bit of imagery. And having seen the Albuquerque five piece live and in action this past March during South By Southwest, i can confirm that their high energy show does indeed make one want to get up and dance. Of course, it being an early afternoon performance during the tail end of SXSW, the band only got the crowd mildly moving during that particular set.

Still, that brief SXSW set was impressive enough, and I’m sure that a full blown club show would make for an even better setting in which to catch the band. And those interested in doing so will soon get the chance, as the band are heading out on tour soon as support for Built To Spill‘s upcoming Keep It Like A Secret anniversary tour. That tour hits Toronto’s Phoenix Concert Theatre on September 20, 2019. Check it out. And check out the video for “Tits Off” from the band’s self titled EP below:

Song Of The Day: Propagandhi – Letter Of Resignation

Happy Labour Day! In honour of the day, have a listen to Propagandhi’s “Letter Of Resignation”, a song not so much about work but about quitting you job and more importantly, about reimagining the way we do things and how we see the idea of “work” itself. While John K. Samson rerecorded the track on The Weakerthans’ first album Fallow, his original version recorded back when he was a member of Propagandhi drives the point home a little further with its spoken word coda:

It’s like being sick all the time, I think, coming home from work, sick in that low-grade continuous way that makes you forget what it’s like to be well. We have never in our lives known what it is to be well. What if I were coming home, I think, from doing work that I loved and that was for us all. What if I looked at the houses and the air and the streets, knowing they were in accord, not set against us. What if we knew the powers of this country moved to provide for us and for all people. How would that be, how would we feel and think and what would we create?

Song Of The Day: Partner – Limelight

Just when you thought Partner couldn’t get any better, the band goes ahead and covers Rush.

Yes, Partner has taken on the quintessential Toronto power trio (sorry, Triumph) for the latest installment of the Polaris Cover Sessions. And in a nice nod to the video for the original version of the track, Partner has also placed a couple of conga drums in the studio which are never once used over the course of the tune.

Song Of The Day: Young Guv – Patterns Prevail

“Patterns Prevail”, the latest single from Young Guv (aka Ben Cook of Fucked Up and No Warning fame), is a refreshing blast of fuzzy power pop that brings to mind vintage Teenage Fanclub. Check it out.

Young Guv’s GUV I is out now on Run For Cover Records.
