Album Review: Bass Drum of Death


With roots in Mississippi, Bass Drum of Death is back with their new, self-titled album and they just keep getting better and better. These indie rockers present modern day garage rock at its best with a perfect balance of lo-fi and punk.

The album is a ride of noisy, boisterous, rough, and rowdy jams that are all pretty short, sweet, and sure to get you moving. Bass Drum’s main man, John Barrett, writes catchy songs that are characterized by fuzzy distortion and raw, choppy sound. Although every song is worth a listen, two really stand-out numbers on the album are “Shattered Me” and “Crawling After You”.

Sharing some qualities with Ty Segall and the grittier side of The Vaccines, Bass Drum of Death is definitely a loud roller coaster ride of garage rock. Perfect for driving with the windows rolled down or a chill day at the beach, this album practically screams for summer.

You can listen to my show, The Beat Hour, live on Mondays from 6-7pm on I play today’s best alternative & indie music, interviews with bands, and the occasional giveaway. Tune in!
