London trio Happyness have just unveiled a new track You Come To Kill Me?! (below) from their new Anything I Do Is All Right EP (out 1 September). With a series of UK dates this month with Dpeedy Ortiz and festival slots at Greenman (15 August) and Reading & Leeds (23-24), the high-rated newcomers - Jonny Allan, Benji Compston and Ashley Cooper - have continued the violent theme of their new song by putting together a Playlist featuring the "songs that hurt the most" both physically and romantically. Bandages and hankies at the ready...
Daniel Johnston - Harley Man Jonny Allan: "Because he was never really sober enough to feel the pain of being an asshole."
Adam Green - No Legs Benji Compston: "It’s either a beautiful demented love song or a scary fucking threat."
Sonic Youth - Poison Arrow BC: "Who who who who?"
CSS - Knife Ashley Cooper: "CSS covering Grizzly Bear. Those things are sharp."
Hall and Oates - ManEater JA: "Ever seen that film Teeth?"
Sparklehorse - Babies On The Sun AC: "Because it’s hot up there."
Tom Waits - King Kong BC: "Tom Waits’ version of Daniel Johnston’s version of the well-known love story. It’s got to hurt when you hit the pavement from 104 stories up."
Wilco - Via Chicago JA: "As opening lines go..."
Brenda Holloway - Every Little Bit Hurts AC: "Needs no explanation - a really great song. Apparently she hated it."
