Wise Blood

“@fuckwiseblood” MP3

May 25, 2011

Listen to this track

Wise Blood's new track, "@fuckwiseblood," comes in advance of his second EP, entitled These Wings. That gem streets August 2 via Dovecote. Chris Laufman's cut is a funny one-off about the ridiculous, self-referencing merging of music culture and social media. Just check out the lyrics: "Facebook's the same, Twitter's always the same - you either update tour schedules or you play up insane. So I spill out my brain, tell you just how I feel, but every time I do that I hear the same shit."

The track is, of course, called "@fuckwiseblood" and Laufman recently launched a new Twitter account. Wise Blood is supporting Friendly Fires right now. Also, check out These Wings' "Penthouse Suites" over here.
