I've the sneaking suspicion that nearly every band around today will be releasing some sort of New Year's celebratory song. It's good publicity, to be spreading good will so early on in the year and people are bound to accept it and dig it right about now when they're all high off resolutions, solutions, and reinventions (yeah, right).

Anyway, Bitchee Bitchee Ya Ya Ya has taken this route, releasing a new song, "The Anthem." Maybe that's the skeptic in me. Maybe people won't be "exploiting" the system in actuality ...

Right, the song. It's really quite cool! In fact, this new tune might be my favorite BBYYY track yet! It's got this melodious near-ballad hook that's really good, memorable, but the song is still drenched in noisy excitement and lo-fi production qualities. The usual BBYYY dirty lyrics are still there, too, so at least they've not changed that in the new year. Woot. Party.
