Track of the Day 501 : Diners – Bummer Deal


I’m a big fan of songs being the correct length. By which I mean, rather than trying to force every song into the same 4 minute verse chorus verse structure, if a song needs to be 10 minutes long, let it be 10 minutes long. If it only needs to be 2 minutes, let it be 2 minutes. Or in the case of ‘Bummer Deal’ 45 seconds.

I know little of Diners, but their recent mini-album ‘A Soft Day’ is full of short, joyous blasts of indie-pop, none more so than the super-short ‘Bummer Deal’. Rather than verse-chorus-verse, it’s basically intro-verse-outro and we’re done, but it manages to cram in more fun, melody and invention than some bands do in an album.

Buy ‘A Soft Day’ by Diners at Bandcamp

The first 483 tracks of the day can only be found on my Tumblr. Everything since can be found here. There’s also a Spotify playlist of every single track of the day (or those available on Spotify at least) below:
