Beast Make Bomb | Dream Boat (Video)
I wrote about a new track, “Dream Boat”, back in early May, from a band called Beast Make Bomb. It has quickly become one of my favorite songs of the year. And it’s not just because the track reminds me of Pretty Girls Make Graves. It’s the energy of it, and the sweet balance between carefree slacker garage-ness and raw-ass talent. Driving guitars, heavy-sticked drumming, and increasingly unhinged lead vocals get bigger, louder, and more frenetic. It’s difficult not to get pumped listening to this auditory Molotov. And it’s even easier to imagine a crowd of rowdy fans bouncing off each other or singing some of the lyrics in unison. Certainly it’s one of the more anthemic releases of the half-spent year. Anyway, a big shout out to a Their Bated Breath reader (Dan) for pointing out that there’s also a new video to go with the track. Watch and listen below. Hopefully, the band has a few more tracks in the hopper, and they stand up to the magic of “Dream Boat”. The band plans on releasing more singles this year. For now, go to bandcamp, where you can stream and download “Dream Boat” for free. You can also follow the band at facebook or listen to two earlier EPs (“Sourpuss” and “Skinny Legs”) at soundcloud.
