Daily Download: "Incredibly Drunk on Whiskey," Memphis

A bookish charmer from members of Metric and Stars.

Don't worry, this download is a lot more lighthearted than its title suggests. Coming from Torquil Campbell of Stars (who has a gift for making lovely music about bookish young romantics having a good time doing bad things), the song is a shambolic charmer. Woozy clarinet and some spritely guitar lines ornament Campbell's picaresque tale about not-so-fine spirits, Fleetwood Mac and food courts. In the best possible way, it's all very used books and vintage tweed.
