Tracklist: Liam Finn - The Struggle

Excellently bearded Liam, son of Neil off of Crowded House and Split Enz, made something of an impact back in 2008 with a live show involving much use of loop pedals and his ability to thrash the tar off a drumkit. Then he went quiet, put out a low-key EP, formed a stupid side project with Connan Mockasin, and now we read he has a full band, which is no fun. The song, the first from July's second album FOMO, is, though, a kind of lo-fi grandiosity where fuzzy guitars and desperate railing against the world are hijacked by pop melodies and colourful synths. With the usual signing up to a mailing list caveat, you can download it from his official site.
