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. Each and every Friday we offer songs by local artists. Today’s selection, featured on the Morning Show with John Richards, is “Medicine” by Constant Lovers from their self-released album True Romance.

Constant Lovers – Medicine (MP3)

It’s time to kick your weekend into high gear, and there’s no better way than to throw on the face melting tunage from Seattle’s Constant Lovers. This primal punk quartet is known for combining layers of noisy guitars and growly vocals that make your ears bleed and your pulse race. Singer/guitarist Joel Cuplin and crew released their much-anticipated debut album last month after making a deep impression at this year’s Capitol Hill Block Party earlier this year. It’s no surprise the tribalistic drums and piercing guitars on songs like today’s “Medicine” had fans crammed to the rafters and sweating like crazy in the bowels of the Cha Cha. This is definitely a band that needs to be experienced live. Unfortunately, they don’t have any shows posted on their website right now, but keep a pair of earplugs on hand for the next time they do. In the meantime, check out their September performance on the KEXP Archives and watch this video for “Champagne Shower”:
