Dharma Dogs: Drown 7"
Debut 7" from this scuzzy punk band from Madison, Wisconsin. These guys remind me a lot of Bleach-era Nirvana, with all of the big hooks, noisy guitars, and heavy bottom end that that implies. I know there are a lot of bands that are going for a noise rock kind of thing and reference early Nirvana, but to my ears Dharma Dogs just sound like a tough punk band with great songwriting who aren't trying to ape anything in particular. Three excellent songs... if you're at all interested in this style I highly recommend this one. Kitschy Manitou Records
