Well it’s been a while. Life can get nutso sometimes. So sorry readers for being so off the radar of the past month. Hence forth expect jam of the day to be back online.
What better way to start the blog rolling again than to showcase the latest ridiculously hot jam by Soko. Her latest single “Monster Love” is a killer duet between Soko and Ariel Pink. Soko is one of the most eclectic female musicians out today. Her multi-instrumentalism goes to new levels in “Monster Love.”
And yes this song is all about monster love. Super monster love. This song and and accompanying music video is a tale of love lost, monsters, regret, and deception. More importantly it’s about monster and mystic beasts. While that might not seem important, it is!
This video has all the works. You have a crazy monster with hands that scratch and cut. It has a landlocked street mermaid who pushes the monster away . And of course, every monster deserves another monster to love. Enter monster #2! The love of Monster #1’s life! The video is awesome! And yes it is a VHS-recorded promo by Soko. It wasFilmed in Silverlake LA. Dig it.
“Monster Love” is a fuzzy lo-fi atmospheric masterpiece and deserves your ears and eyes. Soko is an actor and musician. Music is her passion though. I say keep it coming. At the very least don’t stop being a monster. Apparently Nowness doesn’t embed in wordpress. I’ll update the video as soon as it hits another platform. Till then check it on the site.
