I feel about this band the way I might feel if I was a teenager and my punky little brother had a band that practiced in our parents’ garage and I listened to all their practices while I read The Bell Jar on the porch and looked forward to college. By this, I mean I can’t help but like this band a lot in a smiley and proud older-sister kind of way. They write good songs, they’re politically aware, they seem to be enjoying themselves. Lots of spirited, yelled-out vocals, unrelenting guitars, and awesome drumming. I want to bake them vegan cookies and watch people go nuts for them at shows. Go, Dead Mechanical, go!
