STATE DRUGS: Sandwina: CDEP

State Drugs have a sound that is very much like that of Elway (See my For the Sake of the Bit review) to the point that one might easily confuse the two. I don’t consider that a problem, though, and it makes sense given that State Drugs’ base of operations is just up the road from Elway’s. Anyway, this is a great little record: muscular and thoughtful mid-tempo melodic punk. Their FB page calls them “grown up punk,” which fits the bill quite nicely. Looking forward to more from these guys. –The Lord Kveldulfr (No address listed)
