This is in no way relevant or timely; it is simply an amazing song. I just saw a trailer for Tyrannosaur, starring the amazing Peter Mullan, whom I would force to read Walt Whitman daily if I could, and heard snippets of a song I believed to be stupendous. So, being the modern man I attempt to be, I held my phone up and let the woogiewhatszit song ID app go to work. And lo and behold, I was introduced to The Leisure Society’s “We Were Wasted”, from their 2009 album The Sleeper. Now as a site, we’ve covered a bit of TLS’s newest Into The Murky Water (released this past May), but now we’re encouraging you to go back in time and buy the album this song belongs to: because both are decidedly great.
(The Sleeper is available now from Willkommen Records)
