FADER/Southern Comfort 7-inch Series #9: Little Boots and Wild Yaks

January 28, 2009


For her contribution to FADER’s 7-inch series, current cover star Little Boots gives us one of her shiniest tracks (and one of her first to be officially released). The sound of 8PM and everyone’s first drink of the night, “Magical” glistens with young prospects. It’s a cool, clean song that throbs just enough to suggest a little mischievousness.

Wild Yaks’ “I’m A Fool”, a live nugget from the Brooklyn party band, sounds like 5AM Sunday morning when you’re still trying to go hard even though you know you better go home. Singer Rob Bryn might be barely hanging onto his mic, like he wants to give it up, but he definitely can’t let go. Maybe that’s why he can’t stop wailing “I’m A Fool” over and over.


Peep the Maya Wild cover art, too. Download both tracks by clicking the link below and email contests@thefader.com with "Little Yaks" in the subject line to win a copy of the vinyl.
