VIDEO PREMIERE: The Fatty Acids - Worst Part 2

PLAYLIST: Josh Evert of The Fatty Acids

10390524_1098181846860233_2359666122520720943_nEarlier this week we premiere’d ‘Worst Part’ the new video from Milwaukee Scramblepop band The Fatty Acids who are releasing it on UK label Pink Lizard Music. To celebrate this we have a playlist from Josh Evert of the Fatty Acids, that relates to the writing of ‘Worst Part…’ and the album its taken from Bolero, sort of!

Josh: “Well I can remember sort of what I was into when I was hiding in my friend’s apartment in Bourges, France and writing Worst Part.”

Animal Collective – The Purple Bottle

Perfect, beautiful, fun love song that I could totally relate to at the time. My lyrical style on Boléro was very inspired by Avey Tare’s candid, manic and unconventional lyrics on Feels.

LCD Soundsystem – Dance Yrself Clean

When the synth drops on this song it is almost impossible to not freak out, and that’s the sound I wanted to try and achieve. James Murphy is a master of dynamics, and I was really inspired by that when I was writing Worst Part. I really like how Rob MacFarlane’s remix went more in a disco direction — very LCDesque.


Metronomy – We Broke Free

I had just discovered the album English Riviera and I loved the space and minimalism of “We Broke Free.” The instrumentation on this record is perfect.

The Drums – Money

I heard this song on a whim in England and thought it was the best pop song I had heard in years. The beautiful yet simple chorus “I want to buy you something, but I don’t have any money” really works for me. I have probably heard this song 574839 times and I still love it. Portamento really restored my faith in living room/drum machine albums.


In the spirit of full disclosure — I think I wrote most of worst part in the states… upon further thinking, I think I was writing Human Tetris Bodies in Bourges…”
