Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires – Sweet Disorder

“The song “Sweet Disorder!” is about disrupting systems that have proven to fall short of, if not completely undermine, their purported missions (e.g., criminal justice, mental health, the church, language) for the sake of realigning them with those missions. The song developed out of months spent revisiting the Objectivist poets, binging on early Clash albums, and observing the Atlanta actions surrounding the deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner and other unarmed people of color. The song is the first completed work in a group of songs, tentatively titled Juvenile Detention, aimed at investigating questions of socialization, youth, identity, law, privilege, religion, culture, place, causality and memory.” – Lee Bains III

Listen to the galvanizing track above.

Sub Pop to release Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires “Sweet Disorder!” single, worldwide Friday July 24th.
