When I first heard the band name my first thoughts were 'quirky pop-rock'. I'm not really sure why that was in mind but since a friend managed to find them, I decided to give them a try and to my surprise, I really enjoy it.
Drugstore Fanatics debut album was actually recorded and mixed in the creator's basement and for their kind of music and being a new band, it came out very well. Last.fm describes their sound being similar to Nine Inch Nails, Tool and Devin Townsend but they really stand alone with their own unique ambirock sound. The vocals are fresh and damn he hits the notes nicely.
Currently What's Born in the Basement is on their website as a free download and another copy for $5 that contains the B-sides. I would like to encourage everyone to go ahead and buy the album since it's cheap and I'm hoping with some encouragement they'll get the recognition they deserve. Some good bands just don't get enough love.
