Bass Drum Of Death
Mississippi two-headed garage behemoth Bass Drum Of Death are finally prepping their followup to 2011's GB City, and the first cut off it 'Shattered Me' feels like a concrete-slab-to-the-face level of raising the bar. And I don't mean that in brutality as I do with immediacy - the hooks lying within are relentless, so whilst you wont be able to label this as anything original, you won't be able to resist it either. Which is kinda the point, isn't it - losing your mind without blowing it? I don't know. It works for me anyway.
Innovative Leisure (also responsible for releases from Allah-Las, Crystal Antlers and Hanni El Khatib) is putting out Bass Drum Of Death in June. 'Shattered Me' will ensure this time flies by.
