"Days of Swine and Roses" – My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult (Song of the Day)

220px-kmfdmnaiveSorry for the break in programming over here, but work, life, and spending too much time obsessing over the election can put a crimp in your blogging.

Speaking of the election, I've been seeking out more punk and industrial tunes in the last week or so. Angry and abrasive music does a lot to soothe my soul when times are dark. And these are dark times, my friends.

I'm not a huge My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult fan, but "The Days of Swine and Roses" is one of my favorites. They knocked it out of the park on this single. The samples, the chorus, the creepy ass synths, and the sneering vocals all mesh together so nicely.

Comments and suggestions for similar music very welcome!
