Sput's MAR 2018 Song of the Day

Alright everybody. So everyone who has been participating knows this has been a burden to keep up with, and that's why neekafat has asked me to manage the list for this month. I still want to give huge props to him for getting this awesome idea started, though. There is going to be ONE major rule change for this month. I will not update the list with your ratings unless you calculate the new average if you're rating more than 3 days late. I will *try* to update nightly and will redo averages for 3 days. After that it's on you if you want it counted. I will still update with your recs when you give me a song, album, description, link. Let's try to fill up the month in these 2 days before we start. Newcomers welcome at any time!
1Syl Johnson
Is It Because I'm Black


March 1st: bgillesp
"Is It Because I'm Black?" [funk, soul]
This is a song from one of the earliest protest albums ever recorded that needs way more attention.

Face the Brutality


March 3rd: Papa Universe
"Laugh in the Face of Darkness" [electronic, dance punk]
Before their newest album comes out this month, here is the first single and one that's been plaguing my mind ever since its release. It is catchy in a rather unconventional way. No grand explosion, no vocal range, no surprising instrumental collision, nothing outstandingly significant in any way, except it is just so goddamn fun and the chorus is easily one of my favourites of the year so far.

6Umphrey's McGee

March 6th: BlazinBlitzer
"Plunger" [jam rock]
I wanted to rec some good jam rock that I used to listen to for their famous drumming performances. It was between this and "Elephant Ghost" by C2B3, but I ultimately went with this track because it's much more organized and I think the lyrics are really solid. Not to mention that it one of the best jam rock album openers ever. The song also ends up taking a massive and risky genre shift in the second half that I think pays off 100%. Spoiler alert: It's complete with castinets and congas.

March 7th: neekafat
"Signal to Noise" [prog rock, art rock]
A cosmic, massive, terrifying, and beautiful epic from Peter Gabriel, and one of the best songs from one of my favorite albums. I guess I could see why someone wouldn't dig this, but I can't escape the awesomeness and pure size of it.

"A Slow, Slow Death" [alt rock, indie]
Just a really great indie rock anthem that feels like it's been written in 2007 but is actually from 2017. I feel their last album flew way under the radar for no reason....

"Reflections After Jane" [alt rock, indie]
So many artists seem to strive for the rainy evening in the city vibe that The Clientele seemed to capture so perfectly with this album and especially Reflections After Jane. Simply a lovely little innocent tune.
