HAKAN: Drunk Dial #6: 7”

I like the Drunk Dial series conceptually: Get a band drunk and have them write and record an original song and a cover. I’ve reviewed a few of them, but in practice this release by Italian trio Hakan is my favorite to date. The original “Tempuras Never Come” is a melodic upbeat earworm. The cover is Devo’s “Mr. DNA” but sped up into energetic party fuel. I don’t even drink and I think from these tracks that I’d enjoy drinking with Hakan. They sound like fun drunks. –Lorien Lamarr (Drunk Dial, drunkdialrecords.bandcamp.com)
