New Jay Reatard – “Wounded”

The forthcoming Watch Me Fall is Jay Reatard’s proper Matador debut. As mentioned when we posted the frantic pop fatalism of “It Ain’t Gonna Save Me,” making an album for a specific label’s inspired some soul searching on the part of the Memphis garage punk. Still, the promo cycle must go on: The second Watch Me Fall track comes complete with catchy acoustic guitars, an immediate snotty vocal line, and all kinds of jittery weirdness. I also wouldn’t kick you out of the room if you spotted Ween in the higher pitched breakdowns or later enunciations.
