Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. This week, we are featuring new local songs as selected by Audioasis host DJ Sharlese.

Mommy Long Legs - Life Rips (MP3)

Sharlese's pick for today is the title track from the 2015 self-released album Life Rips by Mommy Long Legs.Sharlese says...

These ladies have been on my radar and on the radar of some of my KEXP DJ friends like Sean Marrow and Alex Ruder! I had heard about them, but I hadn’t heard the music until just a couple weeks ago. They are so much fun to listen to! Their self-titled album is their debut and it’s fun party punk music with great dual lady vocals! They say fun things and I’m really looking forward to seeing them play live soon. “Life Rips” is one of my favorite songs and a “head song creeper”, which means I find myself singing it while walking to work or doing the dishes, unconsciously. I hope that makes sense... Anyway, this is great!

You have a couple of chances to catch Mommy Long Legs in the weeks ahead. They'll be playing the Alder Arts Fair in Tacoma on Saturday, April 25th, and Highline on Capitol Hill on Tuesday, April 28th. Until then, find out more about them and listen to more songs on their Facebook and Bandcamp pages. If you want to see how fun they can be, check out this video of Mommy Long Legs playing their "first show ever" (?) on the day after Halloween last year:
