bass drum of death - gb city

the name of that band does exactly describe their music.... almost every song on their album comes along with a deadly bass drum. their music could be labelled as "blues driven garage punk with a tiny touch of done'ish rock n roll".

fat possum has this to say about the album: The songs are about drugs, trying to make it with religious girls, panic attacks, stealing stuff, mild to severe depression, Elvis appearing in your dreams and giving you advice, gravity bongs and the devil living inside your brain. This record is the soundtrack playing in your head when you’re fucked up and walking home in the middle of the night

to me, bass drum of death are definitely not just another garage band trying to surf on that hyped garage / lo-fi wave. their music is less garage but more rock n roll and they've got a lot more to offer. their sound is fresh and the hooks are uber catchy. a dope record for spring. they remind of "flight" and "dead gaze"... sometimes of "wavves" and "japandroids" but at parts also of the early "black rebel motorcycle club". gratz to fat possum for signing another great band.
