Why Meth Is Good For You...
One of my favourite albums of 2009 was by Meth Teeth.
Meth Teeth released Everything Went Wrong, an album of ramshackle garage mumblings that I couldn't help but fall in love with. From Portland, the band interplays distinct guitar interplay with sludgy distortion, crisp drumming with shattering cymbal smashing, driving bass with staccato rhythms. The only constant - if you can call it that - are the vocals - a distorted mess that are indecipherable and yet intrinsic to the inner workings of each song. Overall the album exudes fun and warmth, rollicking blues, swampy guitars and drunken howling all combining to create a tres feel good hit of the summer.
