Suicideyear – Lagniappe (Spring Hate)

LuckyMe’s newest signee Suicideyear has been a longtime collaborator with the label, having remixed Jacques Greene’s “After Life After Party” and scoring a spot on the prestigious LuckyMe Advent Calendar last year. Before his first LuckyMe-released EP Hate Songs debuts July 28th, listen to “Lagniappe (Spring Hate)”. For new fans, it serves as a brief foray into Suicideyear’s signature of melancholic, faraway melodies and gentle compositions. The song’s title is intriguingly conflicting – a lagniappe is “something given or obtained gratuitously or by way of good measure,” and this song does in fact feel like a sweet little gift. It leaves me curious about the significance of “Spring Hate,” however. I suppose I’ll have to wait until July 28th to decode the meaning further.
