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.
Inundated - The 12th Human
Sometimes it's nice just to take a trip in the way-back machine when it comes to sound, and Connecticut-based Eric Wexler's one-man passion project The 12th Human has that in spades; his recent release "Inundated" is all sorts of alt-rock nostalgia.
Check out the track below:
"Inundated" feels like the kind of late 1990s/early 2000s alt-pop-punk-rock that was all over the place when I was in high school--I know for a fact that if The 12th Human had been around when I was in my senior year of high school, I am 100% sure that I would have had this burned on a CD and had it blaring on my way to work in my old truck. The track is pure, fun, energy in that pop-punk way, with bombastic guitar and drums, and vocals slotted right in between. I also appreciate the fact that "Inundated" does not remain flat, but adds a pile of tempo variance in such a short package.
Then we get to the fact that everything is done by one dude...
If you're into that early 2000s alt-pop-punk sound, or if you're just wanting some straight up, energetic indie alt rock, make sure you grab The 12th Human's Inundated/Apparition. I decided to talk about the most upbeat track (because I needed that today), but make sure you check out Wexler's range with the other three tracks.
The DSD Playlist - Apr 17 is now available! We are sadly missing one song from the last month (again), but I'm pretty happy with how this one all came together!
See you again tomorrow (with probably another completely different sounding song, so I can hate myself come Playlist time...)
