New From Snail Mail - "2nd Most Beautiful Girl In The World"

Snail Mail's cover of Courtney Love's "2nd Most Beautiful Girl In The World" is available today via Amazon Music.  You can hear Lindsey Jordan's version the Lois Maffeo-penned b-side from the 1990 "Uncrushworthy" EP (K Records) by announcing, "Alexa, play the new song from Snail Mail," but if you don't actually own an Alexa-powered device, not only will you look pretty foolish if anyone else is in the room, but you'll have to simply click on this link (so think about it beforehand).
