After streaming Hella Better Dancer's 'Like a Child' seemingly a bazillion times, I finally opened up my wallet tonight, and bought the Beech Coma collection. Normally, I only use streaming for evaluation purposes, and then buy if I like it, but for some reason I dithered. Anyway, it's all sorted out now -- 13 songs for £2, or about $3.50 for us in the States, is a smoking deal. 'Like a Child' is worth that with its moody hooks and huge dark vein running right through it. Stunning. Toss in a fuzzy burner of a tune by Abattoir Blues, and it's a winning proposition. While I will obsess over those two songs over the next few days, I'll eventually get back to the remainder of the collection, and hopefully I'll find something amazing.
For now, Today's Song of the Day is 'Like A Child'. Stream it below, and then go buy it!
