We have heard some rumours that there is some bad red rope licorice in the crowd!
So excited that my pal "ramey" has started blogging, I feel the pressure lifting off me like the lid being gently eased from a high pressure container.
For the un"knowing" The Drums are some dudes who sing songs a la Morrissey On The Beach. Contrary to popular misconceptions, they don't have any drums in their songs, only shitty drum machines. You may know them from that "OBAMAAAAAA, I WANNA GO SURFINNNN" song?
(disclaimer: I stole this image from a blog called "Coconut Girl Wireless." Seems to be about American politics/surfing/being a coconut girl/"tropical enlightenment between sessions"? The latest entry defends surfers against stonerdom by presenting stoner art. What.)
WARNING: to enjoy the latest album from THE DRUMS you will need
a) to be dating a pansy/to be a pansy yrself
b) wear cardigans
c) take polaroids of sunsets with yr pansy partner/pansy self
d) be a parody of yrself in general
"Hey we are not pansies we jus like 2 pout and we <3 u morrisseee!"
HAVING SAID THIS AND NOT BEING A PANSY, I do kind of enjoy "Skippin' town" and "Down by the water."
In general tho I give The Drums: The Drums
