The Lovely Bad Things - Space Waste / Always Lazy 7"

The Lovely Bad Things release their first new material since their debut lp The Late Great Whatever, which came out about two and a half years ago at this point. Lauren's vocals immediately kick off the A side "Space Waste" where she sings in the chorus "waste my time / waste my life." It's an undeniable pop radio hit. I think their time on the road with Best Coast has influenced them, and it shows because Space Waste is The Lovely Bad Things at their most accessible. This is the kind of song that ends up in commercials selling smart phones or new cars or fucking soda pop - i don't know. But you get the idea. The B side "Always Lazy" is the darker more experimental punk version of The Lovely Bad Things that's been brooding since before they were even a band. But this too shows them at their catchiest and most accessible, and that's not a bad things at all. "Don't You Even Care?," sings Cameron on the B-side. Well I sure do, and you should too. This is self released with a limited pressing of 300 on toxic green vinyl. Pick it up from the band HERE
