We've spent plenty of time in recent weeks sharing our excitement for the artist formerly known as PlayRadioPlay!'s new disc under the Analog Rebellion moniker. And, every time we hear a new leak from Aledo native Daniel Hunter's new upcoming disc, Ancient Electrons, our anticipation of the album's release only grows. Take, for instance, the newest song to leak from Hunter: "Marla Singer Doesn't Take Standardized Tests (Disposable Smile)."

Earlier this week, the song made its debut as a stream-only trake on AbsolutePunk.net. We dug it so much, we reached out to Hunter to see if he'd be willing to let DC9 readers check it out. Thankfully for all of us, he obliged. Check out the song--and download it for free--after the jump.

It starts off as a simple enough, fairly straight-forward, reverb-drenched track. But by its end, Hunter flexes his guitar-playing chops, churning the song into a Paper Chase-meets-Pixies frenzy.

Seriously, don't sleep on this upcoming release. And, if you get the chance, catch Hunter performance tomorrow at The Door Plano, where he'll headline a benefit concert for MADD.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
