There are a couple of notable things about Wonderlick’s upcoming third LP, Super. Notable thing #1: the band have turned themselves into action figures. Notable thing #2: the band will be giving the album away for free, via the Super app. Because a concept album about superheroes deserves more than just some mp3s and […]

It’s been too long since we’ve posted anything new. Sorry about that. Hopefully this new song was worth the wait. It’s called “Sixteenyearoldgirl,” and is about said character’s superpowers, which include cutting comments and disdainful eyerolls. We think we’re done recording the album. There are 14 more where this one came from. Enjoy. Download “Sixteenyearoldgirl” […]
To celebrate the holidays, Wonderlick has a new song for you, plus some bargain prices on all our T-Shirts. The song is called “Super Friends,” and is a true-ish story about a holiday that only comes once in your life: the last day of high-school. It takes place, as Tim and Jay’s last day of […]
I had a blast helping pull this benefit compilation together. It’s a bit of an epic, but well worth listening to all the way through. To make that easy, you can play the whole damn thing for free, right here. While every track has something to offer, I direct your particular attention to the live […]
In honor of Flag Day (really, today is Flag Day), we’ve got a brand new song called The American Way. We started this one in SF with Chris Brague on drums, and finished it in LA over Memorial Day weekend with some vocal help from Gretchen Giselle, plus Leo, Lucy and Corrina. If you would […]
One rule about album-making I’ve learned over the years is that the song you most want on a record is often the one you should probably cut. So when we were trying to figure out which of the two dozen songs we’d recorded for Topless at the Arco Arena should go on the record and […]
Work on Super, the next Wonderlick album, continues. We had our old friend Michael James try his hand mixing “One of the Good Guys,” since it’s got a trillion different parts and we’re not sure which ones should be loudest (or which ones should be completely muted). Here’s his take. It’s a bit tougher than […]
Download All Boys Want Free Time for another free download. This one’s “All Boys Want.” The title’s self-explanatory, except that it’s not, really. It’s not the only thing boys want, even though all boys do want it. But we are deeper than that. Sometimes, anyway. Or so the song insists.
Download Devil Horns Free Since I spent last week in Austin for the mega-fest that is SXSW, it seemed appropriate to make “Devil Horns” this week’s free download, as it’s all about the transcendent, demonic power of live rock and roll. This was one of the first songs written for Topless at the Arco Arena, […]
This week’s free download is the first song Wonderlick ever recorded (and also, we think, the first mp3 we ever gave away, way back in 2001, on the late, lamented sayhername.com). It’s called “I Disappear.” Download “I Disappear” Free It’s a pretty song, but a sad one, and remains one of my favorite Lick tunes. […]
