SOTD: The Leanover

Tuesday, Oct. 18

The Leanover
artist: Life Without Buildings
album: Any Other City

Ever listen to a song and have no idea what the fuck the singer is talking about, but you kind of love it for precisely that reason? That’s how I feel about “The Leanover” by the Glasgow band Life Without Buildings.  Singer Sue Tompkins talk-sings over surfer/garage band instrumentation with seemingly bottomless charisma.  She won me over with her infectious nonsense, and I hope she’ll do the same for you.

Sadly, Life Without Buildings broke up in 2002.
