Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Number Crunching - Ginger Snaps
Northampton's Ginger Snaps' latest single "Number Crunching" reminds me of an alt-rockier (early) Beck...and anyone who has spent any time reading any of my music coverage here on theguysfrom.com knows what that means to me....
Give it a listen for yourself below:
"Number Crunching" is catchy-as-hell, funky, and really (really) reminds me of "Devil's Haircut" era Beck, both in terms of sound, and lyrically, though it does not just feel like a homage: "Crunching" is a little dirtier, and blends in a bit of 1960s to their funky, alt-rock sound to create something uniquely fun.
Their two other singles (that I can find at least) trend a little bit more toward a psych-alt rock (still with a Beck flair), which you can totally hear in "Phat Kids".
I like what Ginger Snaps are up to, and am definitely going to be keeping an eye on their future releases, as I'm interested to hear how they continue to develop their style.
Oh so close to a complete list for the DSD Playlist - Mar 17 , but that's alright...there is over 80 minutes of indie awesomeness available for you right now....not to mention...in case you somehow missed it, here is last months DSD Playlist - Feb 17
Plus, if you're interested, there is also an Apple Music Playlist for the Top 20 Songs of 2016, where I put together my favourite tracks from last year.
Remember, if you want me to expand where I put these playlists beyond Apple Music, you just need to let me know on Twitter, and I'll see what I can do.
As there are going to be no other DSD's in April after tomorrow, I will also be sharing the April DSD Playlist with you, so be sure to come back for that!
