All of your favorites, in one place.
One of James ‘Wooden Wand’ Jackson Toth’s favourite bands, these Midwestern lo-fi poppers make a good case for why the Velvet Underground are one of the most influential bands of the last fifty years. While they add their own spin to the sound, for the most part ‘Dost’ is an unpretentious and timeless garage-rock trawl through that very specific druggy Velvets-style basement subgenre. They manage it well too, apparently the band have been largely unrecorded even though they have been playing shows incessantly, and the sound of this full-length doesn’t try and cover any of the warts with needless production techniques. Fans of the Crystal Stilts or the Woodsist set should check this one immediately. Good stuff. (BOOMKAT)
