4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent debut album in the lo-fi, garage rock category, August 27, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: GB City (Audio CD)
As stated in my title, Bass Drum of Death is a lo-fi, garage rock band, who are creating a lot of sound with only a few instruments and a lot of snarly attitude. This album is full of great energy, noisy guitars and a thumping bass drum (as advertised).

The first track, "Nerve Jamming," is a driving anthem, and I imagine would be great to see live. Oddly, "Gb City," the title track is one of my least favorites, as it lacks a great hook and some of the more interesting ideas of the other songs.

Other standouts on the album include "Get Found" and "Velvet Itch", the later having a flashy, glam rock sound.

"Spare Room" and "Young Pros" both sound like tracks right off the last Wavves album, so if you like fuzzy, distorted guitars and vocals, you are in the right place. I think Wavves is pretty tremendous, so I'm all for it.

I guess what I'm saying is that I think this is a must add album for any dedicated followers of minimalist, guitar-driven garage sounds, the likes of Ty Segall and Wavves.

While this is not a 5 star album, like Segall's "Melted" (2010), as a debut CD, it's pretty damn good. I think this group is going to do some great things and can't wait for their next effort.
