Once upon a time, I had a radio show that only played bands currently performing in the District. That show is super dead, so we’ve resurrected it (with way more words and far less radio) in the form of this column. Every day I’ll review a song from a band playing in D.C. that night. The rules are, 1. I can only listen to the song once and 2. I only have until the end of the song to finish my review.


I’m very into the alien radio broadcasts. Hopefully this gets creepier as it goes on. The lyrics certainly seem weird. In a serial killer kind of way. Something is happening with giant dolls and daughters. The frontman almost looks like Ramsay Snow (he’s a bastard, let’s be real) at some points. This music video is kind of silly. I almost liked this song.

You can see The Red Paintings tonight at the Black Cat.
