Song of the Day: Little Barrie – Twisted Little Blade

Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part of our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased tracks, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. Each and every Friday we offer songs by local artists. Today‚Äôs selection, featured on the Afternoon Show with Kevin Cole, is “Twisted Little Blades” by Little Barrie from the 2011 album King of the Waves on Tummy Touch.

Little Barrie – Twisted Little Blades (MP3)

Little Barrie’s first album in four years, King of the Waves was co-produced by Edwyn Collins, a friend and longtime collaborator with the London-based band. It’s a little surf, a little blues, and a whole lot of rock.”Twisted Little Blades,” accelerates the moment with its heavy-rollicking sensibility. Barrie Cadogan, guitar and vocals, formed the band along with Lewis Wharton (bass), and Wayne Fulwood (drums, vocals). The group bashed out an indie hit with producer Edwyn Collins in 2005. Fulwood eventually left the group with Virgil Howe on drums for King of the Waves.

In the spring of 2012, Little Barrie will be hitting up most of France. Nothing beyond that is posted, but keep checking in on their webpage. Also, enjoy the official video for this ditty, “How Come,” off of their latest album.
