weekend roll out: spank rock, “birfday”

3 Feb

After two years with a barely functioning phone, to the point that hipsters complimented its “vintage charm,” I finally joined the land of iPhone last weekend. What was the very first thing I did when I had that beautiful piece of Apple in my hands? Download the Spotify app, of course.

I’ve been basking in the glory of Spotify premium all week, and my first priority was to listen to a few albums that I had previously only listened to piecemeal out of cheapness. As an iTunes user on a budget, I would often follow this pattern: buy an artist’s key tracks, fall in love, promise myself to listen to the full album later, and sometimes forget.

Spank Rock is one such group. I lurrrrve their stuff with Amanda Blanks and everything on YoYoYoYoYo, but with their newest album, Everything is Boring and Everyone Is a Fucking Liar (great title), I had only delved into the singles (and obviously the Santigold collab, “Car Song,” which I featured on RWR back in January).

Well, I finally listened to the whole thing, and it’s phenomenal. These guys stepped it up. The electro-dance-hip-hop fusion album includes many tracks worthy of a weekend roll out, but I’ll hype the song “Birfday.” Namely because it will instantly make you put on your Friday swag (everyday you should wake up and feel like it’s your birthday, especially on a Friday), and also in honor of a friend’s recent 20-something birthday.
