[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bass Drum of Death[/lastfm] is a band from the great state of Mississippi that’s responsible for one of my favorite albums of ’11, GB City. They played to 20-30 people earlier this year at the Empty Bottle and came back several months later to play in front of a packed house at Schubas while opening for [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Japandroids[/lastfm]. This is simple rock ‘n’ roll that won’t take you 4 or 5 listens to absorb all that’s going on. Plug in and go. They were once a two-piece, now there are 3 of ‘em, and they have a new song for you.
