Song of the Day: “Lazy Bones” by Brown Recluse Sings

brownrecluse.jpgEvery Monday-Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. The podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. Today’s featured selection, chosen by Morning Show host John Richards, is by Brown Recluse Sings and is found on their 2006 self-released EP Black Sunday:

Brown Recluse Sings – Lazy Bones (MP3)

The fledgling Philadelphia band began as a project of Tim Meskers and Mark Saddlemire, and soon expanded to include Herbie Shellenberger, Alex Tyson, Jesse Todd, Ryan Todd. With the roster now filled, Brown Recluse Sings is working on new songs for their debut full-length of soothing, 70’s-tinged pop songs, but the kind you only wish you heard back then. The band’s title is an off-handed reference to Chet Baker Sings, only that it hints at the falsity and complexity of the jazz legend’s dual life, public and private, by including the surreal element of the brown recluse, one of two potentially fatal spiders in North America. Heady, huh? That’s why some of these guys are school teachers! But forget all of that nerdy stuff. If you’re a fan of Belle & Sebastian, Page France, or The Zombies, head over to their MySpace page to listen to more of their EP. If you’re in the NYC area, Brown Recluse Sings will take part in the 2007 NYC Popfest.

    Brown Recluse Sing is my favorite pop band of the moment — I blogged about them last week after hearing a song on Rachel’s shift and have been listening ever since.

    Maybe we could pitch in and bring ‘em to Seattle together? :D
