10. Bass Drum of Death – “Crawling After You”

Bass Drum of Death - 2013

The conceit is simple: Girl breaks up with guy, guy does all he can to get back with said girl. Bass Drum of Death express their tragic romance through snarling power chords and catchy guitar lines, not unlike contemporaries Ty Segall and John Dwyer. But whereas those two might cower behind vague symbolism, Bass Drum frontman John Barrett is direct in his admissions: “I know I’m wasting time/ Trying bad to make you mine.” The track will be included on the Mississippi outfit’s forthcoming self-titled album, due out June 25th via Innovative Leisure. -Jon Hadusek
