Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. Todayâ€™s featured selection, chosen by Midday Show host Cheryl Waters, is
Lazy Eyes by Chow Nasty from the 2007 album Super (Electrical) Recordings on Omega Records.
If Junior Senior shifted from their heavy electronica to swamp blues, somewhere along the line you would get Chow Nasty. Damon Harris (vocals/guitar), Joey Enos (bass), and Zac Hewitt (multi-instrumentalist) create high energy funk-punk-party-blues-rock that has been taking the San Francisco bay area by storm. After limiting themselves to touring up and down the west coast on the strength of their single
Ungawa, a debut album produced by Peanut Butter Wolf is now taking them across the country. You don’t want to miss this one.
On July 20, KEXP presents Chow Nasty at El Corazon. Tickets are available here.
Check out their Myspace page for complete tour information. Meanwhile, here’s a video of the guys performing a series of songs in Monterey:
