Lilac Daze – “Fountain And Medicine” (Stereogum Premiere)
A few weeks ago, we shared a new track from Maryland trio Lilac Daze off their upcoming EP, Sedated. “Fountain And Medicine” rocks a little bit more and hits a little harder than that one, distilling snotty brat-punk to a cool two minutes. Besides the obvious touchstones of Weezer and Green Day, this song in particular reminds me a lot of what Wavves were going for on last year’s really great and oft-overlooked Afraid Of Heights: sarcastic and biting and a little schizophrenic, all surrounded by a pummeling hook. Listen below.
The Sedated EP is out 7/12 via Black Numbers.
