SMELL OF MY ROOM, THE: Volume One: Drug Sounds: CD

Nov 30, 2010

I was expecting something really weird here, especially when I tried looking up the label to find more info, only to find a site that makes it look like the whole thing is just a tax write-off or money laundering scheme. The songs have influences ranging from later-era Smiths to some of the mid-to-late ‘90s Epitaph garage/rock’n’roll, in part due to its slick production. However, the whole album is practically repeated in “demo” form, which, to me, sounds like the exact same versions but with a whole ton of gain added so everything sounds distorted and “rough.” I can’t really decide which versions I like better, though it’s probably a better idea to leave the straight-up goofy demos off there.
