Riff: Darwin Deez – “Free (The Editorial Me)”

Feb 12, 2013

Dear Sir(s), we regret to inform you the norm you conform to/Doesn’t meet our needs at this time

from Free (The Editorial Me) lyrics by Darwin Deez

“Free” is one of the album’s lesser tracks, with its declaration of “freedom” atop garage-rock and a side of noise-pop a la Wavves. Still, even at his most straightforward, Darwin’s uniquely catchy chords and intriguing bridge (not to mention the nano-Groundhog Day video) still deserve repeat plays.
