If the internet was your partner for a night on a blind date it would have gotten your knickers off and have had you at least five times in a variety of positions on the park bench, against a wall and in the car before you’d even asked if it wanted to come back for coffee –it’s that fast.
So pity us, the one-man-band-sole-editor-blogger, with a real life non-music related day job, family, kids and social life, because these things slow down our opportunities for being sprawled and buggered with zest by the world wide web. Sometimes we have to accept that we’ll always be at the back of the queue, being the internet’s sloppy seconds whilst the cool, fashionable, good looking and (most importantly) time-spare blogs and pro-websites get all the initial sweet smelling pleasure. Sometimes the only way we’re going to have a band or song's virginity thrust upon us is to discover them first before the industry (which is effectively the pimp for its musical prostitutes) gets its sweaty hands all over them. Not that grabbing that musical virginity is necessarily what we want. Call us low and dirty, but sometimes we don’t mind being sloppy seconds, as long as we’re getting some.
Right now it’s our time to Get Some although there's a high chance you've had it already - it's been all over the blogs in the last 24 hours. The ever refreshing Lykke Li, who produced one of our top albums of 2008 is grinding her way back into our conciousness with her new single. “Don’t pull your pants before I go down, don’t turn away this is my time,” Lykke Li opens before adding later “Like the shotgun needs an outcome, I’m your prostitute, you gon’ get some.” Brace yourselves for the ride, better late than never - 24 hours is a long time on the world wide web. Download Get Some below.
