Happy Monday. Was Lollapalooza fun? If you're still coasting, high as a kite, on the scandalous grind session you had during the Major Lazer set and the subsequent Missed Connection you posted and plan to hear back from very soon, you should ignore today's 12 O'Clock Track, "I Called the Cops," from Iowa City's Slut River. When I wrote about them earlier this year, I commented on the kind of vibes a band called Slut River is usually going to impart. Mostly hateful and bleak, to put it bluntly. The band's sweat and filth is of the 80s hardcore-punk variety, and front woman Anna McDermott uses her commandingly snarling voice to sound as disillusioned as possible. "I Called the Cops" is a heavy, dirgey track from the band's new demo released back in June, and, from what I gather, is mostly about how you probably think you're too cool to ever have the cops called on you. And how you're mostly wrong.
