In this edition of The Last Mixed Tape’s song-of-the-week feature The Mixed-Tape, we turn our attention to ‘2009′ by Shrug Life. 

Taken from Shrug Life’s upcoming second album Maybe You’re The Punchline, ‘2009’ is an angular slice of indie-pop shaped by sharp guitar lines, jolting beats and a frantic vocal that culminate to convey an underlined unease behind the music.

‘2009’ also provides a fuller sound from Shurg Life in terms of production with the band’s garage-rock flourishes carrying more weight to them dynamically. All which bodes very well for the trio’s forthcoming full-length sophomore outing.
