The Ukiah Drag: Dirt Trip 7"
Debut 7" from this band features some members of some Florida bands you might have heard of, but Ukiah Drag actually resides in New England. The a-side here is a dense, lurching post-punk song... it's very song-oriented, unlike a lot of post-punk stuff I've been hearing lately, and actually reminds me a bit of some of the stuff on Olympia's Perennial Records. As for the b-side, it's a little different, with a kind of fall-inspired rockabilly lurch... it actually reminds me a bit of Whatever Brains (except the vocals), so I guess by extension it can also fit in with that whole Protomartyr / PC Worship / etc. scene... a killer single with sick artwork to boot.
