Southern Indiana’s Apache Dropout play brash garage rock that’s clearly descended from White Light/White Heat-era VU, the 13th Floor Elevators, and the Nuggets box set. The songs that make up their blistering self-titled debut are shot through with a primitive rock & roll swagger, hooks that also bring to mind present day garage warriors Ty Segall and The Black Lips, and some pretty warped excursions into fuzzed-out noise. It’s easily one of the best straight-up garage rock records I’ve heard all year. Download “I’m So Glad” and “Sam Phillips Rising” and check out the streaming album below.
