DRAMAMINE: Self-titled: LP

Nov 02, 2010

Holy shitballs. These handsome Germans have just churned out what is perhaps the best record of its kind in a long time. Granted, I’m somewhat partial to Dramamine because I happen to know that these are some seriously wonderful guys (ex-members of Idle Hands, Press Gang, etc.), but there’s something undeniable about a near-perfect fusion of Fugazi/Rites Of Spring passion and Hot Snakes/RFTC minor key melodies and angular swagger. If ‘90s Dischord and/or the Swami Records scene is at all your thing, do yourself a favor and get your hands on this record. It’s so easy to muck up the “revolution summer” sound, but these fellas nailed it. Awesome.
