In an attempt to artificially inflate my post count (and avoid angry political blogging), I want to start two new features. This one, called “Song of the Day” and maybe a second one called “Eye Candy of the Day.” Tomorrow the two will overlap, and if you look at tomorrow’s new release schedule, you will know why.

Today I will post two songs. The first one is Crocodiles “I Wanna Kill” I think we’ve all been there a time or two.

This song has been compared to Jesus and Mary Chain’s Head On more times than I can count. Honestly, I still don’t hear it. The drum machine has a similar pattern to it, but the melody of this song feels a lot stronger to me. Yes, I love the Mary Chain but most of Automatic left me cold, Head On included.

Instead, the song reminds me a lot of the classic Crystals track “Then He Kissed Me,” even moreso after I heard this excellent version by Asobi Seksu
