Fresh off earning phenomenal reader reviews for last week’s Underground Kings, Vancouver flame-spitter Madchild returns to our pages with freshly-released follow-up single It Gets Better. Here, the Swollen Members emcee departs from the aggressive, frequently off-the-wall lyrical style showcased on previous cuts to level with listeners about his personal trials and tribulations, and encourage those struggling to keep the faith. Chin Injeti provides an uplifting, string-laced backdrop for the artist’s heartfelt verses, and The End singer Sophia Danai delivers the joint’s soaring chorus. Big Shot Music, Inc. and John Thomas tie the package together with some suitably sunny, off-the-cuff official visuals. Lawn Mower Man is scheduled to hit record stores and online retailers August 6, at which point it will also be available for free streaming in The DJBooth.
