• “Hospitals”

Tonight, Cobra Lounge welcomes Acid Baby Jesus from Athens, Greece. “Psychedelic punk rock” isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Athens, so I was surprised—and delighted—to discover that Acid Baby Jesus’s new single on Slovenly hits super hard. Today’s 12 O’Clock Track is the first song from the seven-inch “Hospitals.” It’s tough and repetitive, weird and noisy. I love the layers of fuzzy, echoey guitar tones that fall in and out over the course of the song, but my favorite part is the vocals: they sound bored, detached, and unstable, ready to snap at any second—but they still manage to carry an addictive melody. This is one of those great songs that you could listen to on an endless loop and not get tired of. I’ve actually been doing that myself today.

You can listen to “Hospitals” after the jump.
