For the blues-loving American public, Oxford, Mississippi is the gift that keeps on giving. Its latest product, Bass Drum of Death, feels organic and natural amidst a sea of steel and electronic musical peers. A little bit DIY garage rock and a little bit lo-fi, Bass Drum was the one man project of John Barrett until he went out on tour and added members. A collaboration with an Odd Future affiliate, MellowHype, and a sophomore release on the trendy LA art label Innovative Leisure have assured that the wailing harmonies and rambunctious guitars of this band will soon be ubiquitous.
