Today's Song of the Day, as chosen by John Richards, host of The Morning Show on KEXP, is "Do You See Us? (feat. Nobi)" by Left at London, from the 2020 self-released single Jenny Durkan, Resign in Disgrace.
With a title like "Jenny Durkan, Resign in Disgrace", it's pretty obvious Seattle artist Left at London (real name: Nat Puff) does not mince words. And in the verses of today's Song of the Day, she teams up with guest rapper Nobi to sing:
and the slavers that you work for
For the people you killed
“I fucking despise her,” Puff says about Seattle's Mayor Durkan via a press release. “She gassed her own citizens on Pride.”
The track reappears on her latest LP Transgender Street Legend Vol. 2., which came out last week. “I wanted it to be a series,” she says, “and then the success of the first CD really encouraged me to start working on the second one.” This new album, like today's Song of the Day, takes on a more serious tone. “Comedy hasn’t really influenced this project in any real sense,” Puff confirms.
