Yacht - The Afterlife
This song sounds like lumber falling down the stairs. To a beat. With chanting. Yacht seem like they were beamed in from 1981, a forgotten opening act for the Waitresses and the Flirts. But they're a contemporary act and they're DFA, so there. PS. Teenage suicide. Don't do it.
Robyn - Don't Fucking Tell Me What To Do
I'm not a Robyn fan, per se. But I do like the occasional song. This one tickles me because it's (a) talky rap and (b) has amusing lyrics about things that people claim "kill" them. Plus she calls out her percussion a la Neneh Cherry. Kick drum.
