Bzangy Groink DJing Playlist 4/11/2022


After a huuuuuge hiatus, BZANGY IS BACK and it started out lovely last night with a tiny but outrageously gorgeous audience. It was a bloody long set, I DJed from 8pm to 1am at Dubrek but I’m pleased to say the majority of what I played was new music, from 2022. Plus a smattering of classics, of course.

There wasn’t a tune of the night, there was a band of the night which was this ragtag assembly of hardcore punk beanie babies, Anxious:

Hardcore fun beanie babies Anxious. Anxious is an American emo band from Fairfield, Connecticut. The band is currently signed to Run for Cover Records. The band released their debut album in 2022 titled Little Green House.[1] The album was named Stereogum's "Album of the Week".[2] The album received positive reviews

Their 2022 album, Little Green House, is gonna be high up in my albums of this year. It’s a ridiculous powerhouse of a record and the band most reminds me of Title Fight in their restlessness and fucking with genre boundaries. So, I played two songs from them. Growing Up Song (off the album) is shouty, angsty loveliness, a lost Taking Back Sunday classic. Then Where You Been (not off the album, a new single!) sounds like a different band entirely, one as in love with Teenage Fanclub as they are Motion City Soundtrack. And you know what? I love both of these songs. Anxious pull of that impossible trick: they make making pop music sound effortless. At the minute, I am absolutely fucking obsessed with Where You Been and I’m listening to it over and over, trying to sing the ‘stick around’ lyric perfectly in time. It’s not a song, it’s a religion.

When Anxious are all over your daytime radio, remember which middle-aged, obese Indian bloke first played them to you. You’re welcome.
