http://official.fm/playlists/86912?fairplayer=large Lil’ Daggers made one of the best albums of 2011, and they’re about to release a single on Smoky Carrot Records, a label out of the UK. The song is called “Stray Chank”, the title of which either sounds raunchy, smelly, hilarious, sarcastic, or none of them. Regardless of the title, it’s the music that sounds so you should listen to this.
The song can also be found on the new Smoky Carrot compilation, Smoky Times. Vol. 1, released earlier this week (February 27th), but you’ll also want to get the single for its B-side, “Snake Bird”, which you can hear by clicking here. Eh, get them all.
Lil’ Daggers will be doing a split 7″ with The Underground Youth, aiming for a June release.
Lil Daggers – ‘King Corpse’ from Matthew Prickett on Vimeo.
Last month I reviewed the Lil’ Daggers 7″ single for “King Corpse” (read review here) and now you can see the video they created for the song. The video was directed by Matthew Prickett, whose work I’d like to see more of in the future.
Southern rock comes in a range of varieties, whether replete with soulful influences coming in as an acknowledgment of blues and jazz, or the twisted death metal crunch springing from Florida’s tip to the hidden forests of Virginia. Like any other region, good rock unfolds in new and interesting variants. Florida’s Lil’ Daggers are a band who sound nothing like what you’d expect from the South. Then again, the South is known for its rugged and relentless music, and in this case the band takes their brand of garage rock and pushes it forward for a generation who are hungry for good and decent music.

With a new 7″ EP on the way, Lil’ Daggers now have a cool music video, mixed in with some live footage. I like this.
The songs have been circulating around for awhile, but now fans will be able to have them as a 7″. The vinyl junkies in Lil’ Daggers will be releasing the 4-song 7″ EP King Corpse later this year.
