MUSIC REVIEW (Alternative)
Regretfully Yours

Label: Elektra Released: 4/1/1996

I just made the best guacamole I've ever made. One avocado, half an onion, half a tomato, juice of half a lime, and one large clove of garlic pressed through a garlic press. Tasty.

Like guacamole, I like music with some bite. This Superdrag delivers in all the best ways. Take the melodic sense and vocal range of Elvis Costello and superimpose it on the guitar noodlings of Swervedriver, Superchunk and the oft-overlooked Canadian shoe-gazers Mystery Machine and you start to get an idea of what Superdrag are all about. Add in the occasional Nirvana-esque guitar whines and metal-head riffs and you're getting closer. And just when you think you've got them pigeon-holed, the insanely poppy single "Sucked Out" kicks in at track number 4 and turns everything upside down. And just when "Sucked Out" starts to sound like the poppiest song ever, singer John Davis pulls off the decade's raspiest vocal deliver in the choruses. Get that man a throat lozenge!

Regretfully Yours... in title only; you will not regret buying this record, or my name's not Stove.

(I just discovered this band and I notice that they have a newer album available as well so you might want to check it out too.)
