If it’s got guitar and it’s good, chances are it came from Australia. Our latest grungy infatuation from down under is “Desperate,” an apparent oldie but goodie from Perth’s Tired Lion. “Desperate” plays like a late ’80s through early ’00s rock scrapbook, a fuzzy treble-charged blend of Pixies era guitars with Gwen-Stefani-meets-Karen-O angsty pop vocals. It’s a crime that this track has been floating around for six months and has yet to crack 400 plays on Soundcloud, so do everybody a favor and stream it below.
