"Seattle Party" by Chastity Belt
Chastity Belt is a band I've been hyped on since hearing their rowdy, primal pop-punk song "James Dean" last spring, about sex and self-esteem. Recently relocated to Seattle from Walla Walla, Wash., they've been playing and recording a lot, with the band Dude York and engineer/musician Jose Diaz, who recorded "Seattle Party." Listen above. Chastity Belt should have the song up for download soon at their bandcamp. I'm feeling Julia Shapiro's sarcastic lyrics:
your tattoos are so deep, they really make me think
and your life is so rough, you've been through so much
