Pick Me Apart is the first single from the new album by the excellently named NYC rock band Active Bird Community. Not only does it get the coveted (pretty sure it is) RRP Recommends treatment, but we’d give it a super-recommend if we had such a thing. Kind of like an A*, except we wouldn’t end up giving them to everyone and have to start taking them away again to stop the whole thing getting out of hand.
So basically listen to it, and see if you agree (you will) that the vocal jumps in the chorus and the tidy little surprise guitar solo are just two of the reasons why this is a great slackery sort of indie rock. And then go buy it for the princely sum of one dollar from the band’s bandcamp page (link above).
And I know in my heart
when you pick me apart
nothing feels better
