Song of the Day - May 9, 2006

Before I ever heard a song by The Beautiful New Born Children, I expected the band to favor a friendly sweet pop sound. My presumptions were wrong, extremely wrong. The Beautiful New Born Children are the very essence of the lo-fi, garage band sound. Every track of their album Hey, People! is bursting with raw power. Yes, that is a reference to Iggy and the Stooges, as many bands before and more to come have taken inspiration from the legendary Iggy Pop. "Ok, Allright, Fine" best exemplifies the spirit and attitude of The Beautiful New Born Children. The energy level is off the charts, the attitude is snotty, and the sound is raw. It actually sounds as if it was recorded in a garage. Click here to listen.
