about

Doomsday pop takes another delightful turn in the new three track offering from Los Angeles' Alright Alright.

With a style that has been described as "theme songs from a secret society" (Beatcrave) and "delightfully invasive" (The704), Alright Alright is back to the kind of jangly indie-pop shenanigans they're known for. This time with an extended play digital-only release mined straight out of the hard-scrabble rock & roll mines of Southern California's San Fernando Valley.

You've got "Radio". It's a classic two-minute AA banger with sing-along hooks, so turn that one up.

Included on the B-side is a touching love song to Sweeney's newborn daughter, also AA's cover of Drugstore's "El President", a song originally about the coup d'état ousting of Chilean President Salvador Allende. We saw it slightly differently. Local string musician Kaitlin Wolfberg pushed these tracks into classics territory. Enjoy.

Track Name: A - Radio
Why can’t I get my head around it
Prolly oughtta just shut up about it
Tune it all out and start all over
Tune it all out and start all over
Tune is all out and turn up my radio

Hey mother nature, bow before me
All the other girls out there adore me
Shout it like mad with guns a blazin’
But you’ll never be bad as the hell I raise
You gonna listen to me when I’m on the radio

Gonna need another brain
Mine gone criminal
Gonna wash my tears in a bucket of rain
We are all animals
Jenny I lost my head
Well, maybe I lost my head
Yeah, so what if I lost my head
When I’m feeling fine now

All of my veins feel stitched together
Maybe we should both turn witch together
I’m cold and I’m sick and I’m tired a runnin
We gonna set this town to hummin
You can plug your ears but I’m on the radio
Track Name: B2 - It's All Your Show
Why you sitting alone?
Honey, it aint’ the time to wind up
Just pick up the phone
I promise that I’ve made my mind up

I just can’t believe
The way the word’s been getting round now
Why won’t you look at me?
When it looks like I’m the one who’s bound to say

Adelaide
You’ll be okay
Even on your darkest day
You can ask yourself but you already know
Adelaide
It’s all your show
You don’t gotta sink so low
Hey, I’m trying to tell you something.

Push it till it breaks
What’s the worst thing that could happen?
Just don’t be afraid
If sometimes it comes unfastened
Tear down the wall
But it’s not in my power to give ya
Freedom from it all
But when you find it I’ll be with ya

Hey,
Adelaide
You’ll be okay
Even on your darkest day
You can ask yourself but you already know
Adelaide
It’s all your show
It’ll either sink or float.
Hey, I’m trying to tell you

If I turn out the light
If I say good nite
It will be all right

Dark before the dawn
About as bad as I have seen it
Look and if I’m gone
It doesn’t mean I didn’t mean it

Hey, Adelaide
You’ll be okay
Even on your darkest day
You can ask yourself but you already know

Adelaide
It’s all you show
It’ll either fall apart or grow
Hey I’m trying to tell you something
