It’s a mystery why Coke Weed hasn’t maintained a higher profile. The Ben Harbour quintet is three churning, hook-hemorrhaging full-lengths into a formidable career, tossing off one dreamy, tunneling wonder after another, their metier falling somewhere between candle-waving shoegaze, top-shelf bar band country, and pile-driving rock ‘n’ roll. Vocalists Milan McAlevey and Nina D. oversee shambling yet concise grooves that ingratiate and captivate. Meet your new favorite band.
