APACHE DROPOUT: Do the Splendid Crown: 7”

Sep 07, 2010

This is the kind of stuff I’m always hoping to stumble across when I have a bunch of music in a box to pick from. Something out of the ordinary, something “off,” something that goes “out there.” Essentially stuff that makes music exciting. Apache Dropout is some warped bluesy melted mind sort of music. Perceptions are distorted and the music is the focus of your attention. Everything sort of oozes and kind of lumbers in some far-off way. It’s lo-fi, loose, trashy, and psychedelic. “Do the Splendid...” is a mid tempo shuffle, while “All I’m Gonna Do Is Laugh” lingers and floats like late summer heat in the mid afternoon.
