I've been hearing a lot of bands from Indiana lately...a lot of really strange, interesting ones, to the point where I'm starting to wonder if I was really paying attention back there in good old Fort Wayne...anyway, this is another one, Apache Dropout, from Bloomington, who ply a crazed, psychedelic, soul garage kind of trade. I believe there are connections to the late, great John Wilkes Booze, but not exactly sure what they are. Paul Mahern of Zero Boys produced. It's on Family Vinyard, which normally releases more in the free-jazz, experimental improv vein, but don't let that scare you. This is the good stuff, rock 'n roll style.
The band is, very generously, making the whole album available on Bandcamp, so what's stopping you?
