Song of the Day

She Said


It’s surprising at the speed which a fresh indie act can go from being completely unknown to being anointed supremely worthy, but that’s kinda what’s been happening over the past couple of months to Lissy Trullie. After all this time together, you’ve probably figured out that I keep my ears open when it comes to finding new indie music, but I was only barely aware of her…she was one of photographer Ryan McGinley’s friends who would happily pose naked whenever he asked and she apparently DJ’d around the New York club scene…and yet after releasing a debut EP, Self-Taught Learner, and playing a few well-chosen gigs in all the right clubs (including well-received shows at CMJ and her release party at The Mercury Lounge), this week New York Magazine dubbed her the “future of New York rock”…!!! I figured with all that hype, I had better give her a listen to see what all the fuss is about…and I gotta say, it’s kinda cool. There’s a healthy dose of muscular drum work and a solid array of post-punk riffs to back up her self-aware songwriting and Chrissie Hynde-like snarl vocals and that’s good enough for me to pass on to you guys. As always, you can check her out on MySpace
