Giant Drag – Meowch [MP3]

Tuesday, July 26, 2011 by | No Comments | Category: Alternative/Rock, Music

Everything about this song is completely hypnotizing, from the airy synths to the scratchy vocals from Annie Hardy. She has the haunting voice of an alien baby, titles her songs like “YFLMD” (“You Fuck Like My Dad”) and freestyles with curious rhymes like “I don’t wanna be famous, I just wanna sniff your anus.” Swag.

Based on a gorgeous stainless steel Summit freezer, the Beer Froster adds a thermostat to let you ensure that up to 120 of your favorite beers stay at the arctic temperature of 24ºF, or right on the edge of freezing and exploding all over the place.

Well, don’t just sit there all jealous while drowning in a pool of self-pity as you watch your summer fly by. Plan an outing! Gather friends! Do something!
