I’ve spoken for my love of Tacocat, but have I spoken about my love for Pony Time and Chastity Belt? They’re all important bands coming out of the Seattle region, who are making fun and socially critical music. They make being “woke” feel less controlling and terrifying. They make being miserable seem less awful because they know how to make fun of themselves. They are the kind of bands that you want to dance to in your underwear and maybe go out in public while still dancing in your underwear. Let your nipples breathe, let your butt cheeks hang, and just enjoy the cool tunes. Put them all together and you get the amazing musical animorph, Childbirth, (who also recently released a new single, which is below).
