Typhoid Rosie - "All I Need"

Brooklyn's Typhoid Mary are back with the latest feminist anthem from their upcoming album. "All I Need" takes the usual punk sound we've come to expect from Typhoid Mary and slowed it down and changed it up a bit. Instead there's a very 60's doo wop or crooner sound to the song. Of course, this is still a punk song. It's a bizarro doo wop song dripping with attitude, gang vocals, and warped guitars. "All I Need" is the sonic equivalent of being given a candy apple with razor blades just jutting out of it. Plus, it features vocals from Coolie Ranx formerly of The Toasters and currently with Pilfers.

In a press release, Rosie Rebel says of the new song:

"Ninety percent of the songs dudes write that we thought were love songs are really about sliding a girl's panties off. Maybe its time we mix sh*t up. This is the song that happens when a grown-ass woman rips the mic out of some douchebag's hand who's held that mic for way too long."

You can listen to "All I Need" below. Queen of Swords is due out August 13. You can pre-order a copy over at Bandcamp. For more on Typhoid Rosie, check out the band's Facebook and Twitter.
