Band: The Airborne Toxic Event
Album: The Airborne Toxic Event (2008).
If you read Pitchfork, you might remember that a few years back, they skewered The Airborne Toxic Event’s debut album saying the album “…often sounding more inspired by market research than actual inspiration.”. Quite frankly, Pitchfork doesn’t know their head from a whole in the ground some days! The album is great from start to finish and after multiple plays. Today’s Song of the Day is Missy, which is one of my favorites off the album.
In order to promote their album, the band released acoustic versions of each song and I feel that the acoustic version of Missy made a great studio track even better. Plus, it proves that there are still awesome musicians around that don’t have to depend on auto-tune and other studio tricks to sound good.
After you check out today’s Song of the Day, make sure to check out the rest of the songs from the acoustic set. It’ll make the rest of your Sunday just a little better!
