The Drums | I Can’t Pretend
Off the new album Encyclopedia, it’s hard to shake the premonition that this is going to by my fall record of choice. But then again it’s always been a bit difficult for me with The Drums - Portamento was dark and weird, which sometimes works, but didn’t stick with me (though I loved Money). And yet, even the discordant thrasher of a track Magic Mountain has a surprising (to me!) magnetism to it. Guess we’ll see - I Can’t Pretend has all of what I like about The Drums, so I’m pretty psyched for the record.
Pre-order the album via their website (Sept. 23rd), along with a few crazy clips promoting the album.
