It’s day 13 on The Joyzine Advent Calendar, and if you’ve been enjoying our selection of free downloads and festive treats then it’s your lucky day, for as well as giving you another top notch musical gift today we’re also broadcasting a 2 hour Christmas Special edition of The Joyzine Radio Show on Wandsworth Radio tonight. We’ll be joined in the first hour by co-conspirators Frauds, whose debut album With Morning Toast & Jam & Juice is out now, and in then we’ll be bringing you a full hour of our favourite festive tunes. Listen live from 7-9pm at www.wandsworthradio.com
Today’s advent calendar treat comes from London quartet Fightmilk, who have been going from strength to strength in 2017. Highlights have included the release of their Pity Party EP on legendary indie label Fierce Panda, a show with fellow Joyzine faves Desperate Journalist at The Dome and of course Nick’s appearance as part of Team Joyzine at the Soccer Six music & football festival.
They’ve provided us with a free download of ‘Some Boys’ for today’s calendar window. Here’s Nick on the track:
‘Some Boys’ is a short, sharp shang-a-lang to the face that catalogues all of the awful types of guys you inevitably get paired off with through dating apps. We recorded this as the last song of a marathon ten-songs-in-a-weekend session last February after a trip to the pub for some much needed pep, and we had totally forgotten Death Cab For Cutie had a song of the same name when we wrote it. Ours is better though. If you’re a woman, this song is for you. If you’re a guy, this song is about you.
We’re kicking off 2018 by playing Fierce Panda’s Pandamonium festival on January 10th with our pals Chorusgirl and National Service. (Details here https://www.facebook.com/events/163493997720619/ ).
