- Saturday by Dope Body
Oh hey, two new Dope Body songs! The Baltimore quartet’s bombastic sophomore LP ‘Natural History’ was one of my favourite releases of last year so this new single is a nice treat on this sunny-yet-freezing day. ‘Leather Head’ eschews the in-your-face theatrics of the aforementioned album for something a bit more sinister. It’s got churning hypnotic riffs and vocals mixed low and more than a hint of Jesus Lizard influence. In fact if the bass was a little bit clankier and the vocals were a bit yowlier this’d be vintage Lizard. Super.
Flip it and ‘Youth Relic’ is more like the thinking man’s bro-rock which I’m used to from them, breakneck repetitive riffing and louche, lively vocals for a surging, summery jam that reminds me a bit of underrated Portland goofballs Tight Phantomz, but not as much as it reminds me of Dope Body. Another quality offering.
