Heard this on the Jays this morning - and it grabbed me immediately. It'll be huge (well it would be if I had any idea of current musical taste).
Chaise Lounge - Wet Leg
Anyway - it reminded me of a 'style' that I call 'bored girl' songs. So I thought I'd post them here. If you have any you think are in the same vein post away!
Bored - Destroy All Monsters
Is That All There Is - Cristina
Facts Of Life - Black Box Recorder
The Truth About Cats And Dogs - Pony Up
Never Say Never - Romeo Void
They're reminiscent of Sonic Youth.
You're right - Kim Gordon does it too - this track in particular
Kool Thing - Sonic Youth
And who can forget the Flying Lizards' cover of "Money."
Yep you nailed it with this one (it was on my mental shortlist but I forgot it).
I've got a few that sort of fit in this style, but maybe 'bored' is being stretched to 'world weary' or 'dismissive'
Stupid Girl - Garbage
This one's more for the video than the music, but it's not far off.
