Song of the Day - July 7, 2005

I am musically back in Seattle again, with local favorites The Lights. Their sound is an amalgam of various influences most notably to my ear the sounds of Joy Division, Iggy Pop, The Fall, and the ever present Gang of Four. "Suge Night Sweetheart" is recorded live and simmers with intensity. I kept wondering why this song was so appealing to me, when I had a revelation. This song is similar to the track "Bodybag" by the legendary Chicago punk band The Effigies. I wonder if The Lights ever heard this track, because it must have been floating in around in their subconscious when they conceived "Suge Night Sweetheart." If there are any Effigies fans out there, tell me what you think. Click here to listen.
