Arms Akimbo “Devil” – Listen

This is not the religious inspired song you might imagine, it’s more a critique by Arms Akimbo of Los Angeles – their love/hate with that fine/awful city and how they don’t much appreciate/like at all the whole  fake celebrity culture and obsessive narcissism that it can inspire.  That they are part of that culture – having built up a following in LA that has allowed them to sell out The Troubadour no less – must be just so galling.   Like, to the max.  For sure.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
