Iceage - "The Lord's Favorite"


Denmark's Iceage have proven themselves to be savvy in numerous fringe genres across their two full-length records: post-punk, goth rock, noise rock. However, this new--and surprisingly melodic--track of their delves unexpectedly into alt-country, it seems. Everything from the guitar chords to the bassline feels distinctly Western, but Iceage performs it in their trademark sloppiness. Like usual, a good song shines through despite the slurring vocals and loosely played instrumentation. Enjoy!
