New Sounds: Dope Body
Baltimore quartet Dope Body are to release their sophomore album "Natural History" on May 22nd, and on the strength of "Lazy Slave", the first song to be released from the record, it looks set to be one of the year's most exciting releases. Taking the post- hardcore fuckery of Fugazi and Bitch Magnet and running it through the sludge of Alice In Chains, it starts off as a fusion of a fuzzy and distorted bass line, pounding beat and sex- panther- funk- esque guitar effects, before evolving into a sludge- funk anthem straight from generation X. As it progresses it features whirring and high- brow tremolo picking, and ends on a mighty racket of profoundly wailing guitars and wild, bestial yelps from frontman Andrew Laumann. Intense, electrifying stuff.
