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 “Angry Charlie” by Generationals from the 2009 album Con Law on Park the Van.

Generationals – Angry Charlie (MP3)

The idea of the summer song is one as old as youth. The notion that a particular song — sometimes an entire album — can shape or define the months between school, work, or cold weather. It is a powerful thought and the science behind such ideas would likely ruin the chemicals and imbalances at work within us all. It’s best to just to keeping tapping the ‘repeat’ button and enjoying what the music is giving you. Generationals certainly exhibit a penchant for enjoying the sounds of the warmer months, as Con Law is dripping in beachy production and breezy melodies that harnesses decades of summer moods. The New Orleans group won’t have you dreaming of white hot sand, salty air, and tanning beauties but Generationals do wrap up your summer evening memories in a soft blanket and with a hearty hug.

MySpace is the place to discover Generationals’ touring itinerary, which is only three dates long after a small jaunt through California and Texas. The remaining dates don’t find Generationals coming close to Seattle, since they were already here last month, so unless you have trips to Louisiana or Monolith Festival planned, you’ll have to just enjoy the funness contained in the video for “Angry Charlie”:
