Today’s song of the day is in honor of day 3 of the North Coast Music Festival, going down in Chicago’s Union Park. These guys take the local stage at 5pm tonight. The song, Loyal Divide‘s DDF, is one of the best off of their up and coming LP ‘Bodice Ripper’, which will be dropping in October. These guys are a full band, but sometimes their recordings can come across as DJ music, because they really are that crisply in time. So when seen live, this gritty and dark electronic sound comes to life in a wondrously fantastic and palpable manner. In this song they take a sample, of what can’t be said, and build, wrap, and expand upon it. All the while a deep and borderline-fist pumping rhythm section anchors everything. It’s a lot of fun, and it’s dexterous and dynamic and – well – flat out addictive.
Happy Labor Day Sunday everyone, may you treat it like a second Saturday!DDF-Loyal Divide by Laurel Kathleen
