Bad education

Let’s take a short break from Romania-themed posts. I was delighted to see that Tilly and the Wall released a video for “Bad Education,” the best song on their sophmore release “Bottoms of Barrels.” This is the song of the year for me and the video is pretty good. The song is about gender confusion and other assorted troubles.

This kind of music wouldn’t catch on in Romania, where we’re much more likely to listen to electronic music, pathetic pop and dance bands called Chicanos that sing in Spanish about the broken hearts and the envious caballeros in the ghettos. Yes, half of the Romanian towns feature LA-like barios, while the rest are Eastern European takes on the Bronx. Examples will soon follow…

So yes, I need some Tilly and the Wall.
