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. Today’s featured selection, chosen by Morning Show host John Richards, is Fledermaus Can’t Get It by Von Südenfed from the 2007 album Tromatic Reflexxions on Domino.

Von Südenfed – Fledermaus Can’t Get It (MP3)In 2005, Mark E. Smith, vocalist of the band The Fall, lent vocals to German duo Mouse on MarsWipe that Sound. While the song didn’t grab that many people’s attention, it obviously had an impact on these three boundary breakers; three years later they record a full-length album including a reworked and retitled version of their first collaboration, appearing now as That Song Wiped. In order to escape sounding like yet another incarnation of The Fall or like a Mouse on Mars project with vocals, Tromatic Reflexxions was created for the dance floor. By tightening the reins on MoM’s sound and funking up The Fall, Von Sudenfed takes on a unique sound of its own, guilty only by association and not repetition.Only a few shows are slated for August and September in Europe, but these won’t mark the end for Von Sudenfed; talks are already in progress concerning the second album. Check out their MySpace page for some very exciting tracks. Meanwhile, here’s the must-see video everyone’s been talking about:
