Birthday Ass - "Sunlit Toes"


"Skrunk" is a genre name I've never heard before, but that's what a press release calls Birthday Ass. Their new single, "Sunlit Toes," is more of what we liked on "Blah." "Sunlit Toes" almost starts off normal. Almost. The song is this bizarre blend of jazz and indie pop/rock. It starts off like a more discordant version of bands like Rubblebucket or And the Kids, and then the horns kick in. Then it turns into a free jazz sounding hippie dance party. "Sunlit Toes" is another one of those songs that shouldn't work at all. It should be a complete unlistenable mess, and I'm sure there are those out there that will think of it that way. But they can't say Birthday Ass isn't one of the most unique and creative bands out there. This is one of those songs you really owe it to yourself to try out because it could very well turn into a diehard fascination.

You can listen to "Sunlit Toes" below. Head of the Household is due out April 23 on Ramp Local. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Birthday Ass, check out the band's Facebook and Twitter.
