Song of the Week: "Second"


I hail the UK-based electronic duo Sleaford Mods -- vocalist Jason Williamson and beat meister Andrew Fearn. They've been making beautifully executed punk-hop with spoken-shouted diatribes for the more than eight years; like the '70s punk duo Suicide meets Henry Rollins ranting over hip hop beats. And, if it matters to you, public kudos from The Godfather of Punk, Mr. Iggy Pop! Brilliant lyrics married to insanely simple, but hooked-filled beats. "Second" is from their new carefully-curated retrospective All That Glue.  The epically affected/effective "staged" video was directed by Simon Parfrement and features the UK actresses Kate Dickie and Emma taking over the roles of Jason and Andrew while they watch from the audience.
