American Babies - "Goddamn" (video) (Premiere) + Tour Dates

by PopMatters Staff

22 January 2014

With its tug-at-heartstrings twang and melancholy vocals, American Babies’ “Goddamn” is a sentimental rocker to drown your sorrows in.

With its tug-at-heartstrings twang and frontman Tom Hamilton’s melancholy vocals, American Babies’ “Goddamn” is a sentimental rocker to drown your sorrows in. And yet, as the track from American Babies’ 2013 album Knives & Teeth attests to, there’s some solace to be found in giving voice to those under-your-breath mutterings that know too much about hopes slipping away and regretful regrets. Premiering here on PopMatters, the video for “Goddamn” comes as American Babies prepares to release a new EP, Stark & Red (The Royal Potato Family) on 1 April, and to go on tour.

'Fire Emblem Heroes' Is a Bad Crossover

"Fire Emblem Heroes desperately and shamelessly wants to monetize our love for these characters, yet it has no idea why we came to love them in the first place.
