News :: We Can See the Future :: Bass Drum of Death

I'm pretty sure this is what it sounds like if you decide to take a bath with your hairdryer: a lot of wailing and amplified guitar hiss so that if someone were to hear you from the other room, they'd think you were having one badass scrub.

Bass Drum of Death just finished off a couple of successful shows up in NYC this past week, and their debut album is slated for release on Inflated Records next month.  Sonically, they've got a lot in common with another of my favorite bands, Purling Hiss. But these guys put a lot more emphasis on the rock, sweating and shouting like Iggy Pop before Nico gave him the VD. Oxford, MS (and more specifically Cats Purring) is giving other music scenes in the country a run for their money these days, and I'm predicting a brilliant 2011 for those deep fried southerners. And if BDoD don't drop through the District on their spring tour, well, let's just say we'll be the waving to you from the grassy knoll. We're talking to you John Barrett. Ah shit, who am I kidding? Cut a couple solid records first, then we'll make you famous.

Here's a couple of tracks off of GB City:

Bass Drum of Death :: Heart Attack Kid
Bass Drum of Death :: Get Found

Welcome to your Monday morning. Try not to be a douche.
