Destruction Unit wear their home geography on their sleeves and in their music. Hailing from the desert dystopia of Tempe, Arizona, their last record, Deep Trip, drips with the residue of past acid trips in oppressively hot temperatures. Frontman Ryan Rousseau used to play in Jay Reatard's the Reatards and brings with him a similar dependency on excellent musicianship. Destruction Unit's art is found in their psychedelic escapism, punk rock for those into all things cosmic.
