Our track of the day is some rousing rocknroll from LA’s MAWD, aka Madeleine Mathews. ‘Hot Shit’ is an angry anthem about seeing people clearly for the first time and the weird power trips that come with some people on social media.

Written in a fit of anger, empathy, and self-realization, the idea of “Hot Shit” was first sparked when a rock n’ roll band Mathews admired, was being reckless during quarantine, flicking cigarettes out their car while posting about partying (maskless) with their friends on social media – acting rather “tone deaf” in a world where hundreds of thousands of people were dying from the virus. Similarly, this band and popular social media icons, friends, and family were either silent or revealed their racist tendencies during the Black Lives Matter movement as well as leading up to the 2020 election.
